BSA Special Feature: Vermibus: Unveiling Beauty: New York, Milan, London, Paris
“Unveiling Beauty, as the name suggests, reveals the beauty that lies hidden behind the make-up and the photographic retouching that are used both within the fashion industry and in the way it publically stages itself via advertising.
In September 2015, Vermibus has followed the route of the most in uential Fashion Weeks, travelling to New York, London, Milan and Paris. And he analysed and revealed the true beauty that was hidden behind the various campaigns that are imposed on the public spaces of these cities.”
Earth Crisis by Shepard Fairey
“I’m hoping to reach the average person, the average citizen,” says Shepard Fairey about this new project meant to correspond with the Cop21 climate change talks.

“In one year I did five trips to an abandoned paper factory in Vargön, Sweden.”
Boijeot, Renauld, Martin: Hotel Empire. Octobre 2015, 732 hours, New York City, United States.
