The Project


UNDENIABLE.

 

RADICAL BEAUTY IS ABOUT CHALLENGING OPINIONS AND UNDERSTANDINGS OF BEAUTY IN CONTEMPORARY CULTURE. IT IS A FASHION AND ART PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT BLURRING BOUNDARIES BETWEEN DISCIPLINES, AND WORKING TO PROVIDE AN ALTERNATIVE VISION FOR BEAUTY TODAY.

ENGAGING WITH 40+ RENOWNED FASHION AND ART PHOTOGRAPHERS GLOBALLY, THIS PROJECT FEATURES ONLY MODELS WITH DOWN’S SYNDROME. THESE MODELS ARE STYLISED AS OBJECTS OF DESIRE, BEAUTY AND WORTH, AND ALL SHOOTS ARE UNDERTAKEN WITH THE SAME DEDICATION, TALENT AND CREATIVITY AS MAJOR FASHION CAMPAIGNS.

A FIRST OF ITS KIND, THIS COLLECTION OF POWERFUL IMAGES WILL BE TURNED INTO A COLLECTABLE, COFFEE-TABLE EDITION ART BOOK.

Pledge

Over the last three years, Daniel Vais has been engaging with world-renowned fashion and art photographers* to produce extraordinary images of models with Down's Syndrome – highly stylised as objects of desire and beauty.

Now it is time for the next level: to put together a coffee-table book that will blur the boundaries between disciplines and work a new aesthetic against the current conceptions of what constitutes beauty.
