Expressing Yourself


#1LOOKADAY

If you happened to have grown up in a time more conservative than the present, it’s quite unlikely that you would take for granted the wide latitude for personal expression we now enjoy. If you did not, as is more likely, then try imagining these images — shot with an iPhone 6 during New York Fashion Week: Men’s; at the recent Zona Maco art fair in Mexico City; at fashion shows of women’s wear from Marc Jacobs or Kanye West; or at the House of Ebony ball — appearing in a mainstream newspaper without objectifying quotations during the Eisenhower era or even that of George W. Bush. What would have been the odds?
