here's a sneak peek of editorial i created for NAKEDBUTSAFE.
a homage to the late fetish icon~

Los Angeles based Rick Castro is an emblematic figure of this particular school of contemporary artistic developments. Not only is he an acclaimed artist himself, working in a variety of media since the 1980s, but he has also collaborated with some major masters of queer creativity, thus firmly establishing his name in the annals of queer art. Additionally, he runs the Antebellum Gallery, proudly advertised as “the only fetish art gallery in the world”, supporting and introducing the art of like-minded artists. Exclusively for Nakedbutsafe, Rick Castro photographed a series of images paying homage to Pierre Molinier, the 1950s French artist whose self-portraits in drag remain testaments to the power of fetish iconography, having influenced artists ranging from Cindy Sherman to Steven Meisel.
