'I embrace the term 'activist' because I am one' - Powerhouse & Transgender Model Munroe Bergdorf in der September-Coverstrecke der TEEN VOGUE, fotografiert von THE MASONS c/o MAKING PICTURES

MAKING PICTURES präsentiert uns die TEEN VOGUE Coverstrecke September 2020 mit Munroe Bergdorf. TEEN VOGUE: “In light of a year of rebellion and revolution, this September Teen Vogue looked to The Masons to photograph their cover story featuring Munroe Bergdorf, a black trans women who trailblazes in redefining beauty, fashion, and culture. They wanted to spotlight the women who are at the heart of fashion but often left out of the conversation.”

“Yeah… It’s making sense of a lot of the things I was ashamed of and afraid of when I was a kid. Unearthing those things I’d really repressed for decades is a lot,” so Munroe Bergdorf über ihr Debüt Buch Transitional. “I’m writing about how we as queer people grew up without seeing our love reflected in the world around us. It’s a slog to write because I’m putting myself back into that headspace, all the way back to childhood.” Der Link zur ganzen Story hier (Writer: Thora Siemsen).

'RENA' - Tanz-Performance von Choreographin und Tänzerin RENA BUTLER, festgehalten von Fotograf / Director Marcus SMITH c/o MAKING PICTURES in Chicago

Marcus SMITH c/o MAKING PICTURES realisierte ein freies Film und Foto Projekt mit Rena Butler, Choreographin und Tänzerin (Hubbard Street Dance Chicago), das wir Euch hier bei GoSee präsentieren.

Marcus : “We got to really vibe out and just have a good time shooting with no real goal in mind except to have fun. It’s been such a long time since I’ve done a ‘one man show’ type of shoot, and it was a reminder of how rewarding and stressful the early days were when I literally had to do everything myself. Kind of cool, but the suit Rena’s wearing was my birthday gift to myself this year, and I didn’t get to wear it due to being stuck in the house. It’s a cool suit, but Rena made it look way cooler than I could make it look. Sound on for maximum effect!”

Rena Butler hails from Chicago, IL. She has danced in companies such as Kyle Abraham / Abraham.In.Motion, Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, David Dorfman Dance, Manuel Vignoulle/M-Motions, and The Kevin Wynn Collective.
