#BeautyKnowsNoColor - Behind the Scenes of Dark Magic

If you’ve been following my instagram you may have seen me use the tag #BeautyKnowsNoColor.  This project originally developed from an ongoing discussion with my longtime friend and collaborator, Ananda Khan.  Ananda is a talented hair and makeup artist represented by Big Leo.  Throughout her career she has always been as interested in the politics of beauty as in her role enhancing and manipulating beauty.  Over the last couple years our discussion kept revisiting the ways women are represented in media and our role as women creating that media.  A huge part of those conversations was the idea of what we as a society deem beautiful, and thus valuable.

Iandra - Beauty Knows No Color

This is the first installment of a project we are calling Beauty Knows No Color, which explores contemporary themes and trends in modern editorial beauty.  We photographed this story together last fall when we initially conceptualized the project, then, as  often happens, we got busy and life got in the way.   We are now revisiting this and a couple other larger projects that we will roll out over the next few months.  Keep a lookout for  the hashtag:   #BeautyKnowsNoColor for  behind the scenes shots  and images from the  finished stories.  I look forward to sharing  more from this and updates from our   other upcoming adventures.  I hope you enjoy!
