Title: Romance of the West
Brand: created for Obvious Magazine
Description: Western Inspired fashion is a trend that has been alive and well in American fashion over recent years. As the reality of the American West disappears in our modern world it is increasingly idealized and reimagined through fashion and popular culture. I wanted to shoot a story that drew on some of fashion's most recent reflections on western wear and shoot the story similarly to Avedon's portrait series, "In the American West" to show the link between all the ways that the culture and legacy of America's western expansion has continued to influence our visual culture.
