For many years I have documented latex fashion in Los Angeles and around the world. I’ve had the pleasure of working with talented designers, models, enthusiasts and collectors in the genre. Latex is the type of fashion that people become passionate about. It’s about the look, the feel and even the smell of the clothing. It is often referred to as the ‘second skin’.
This week I had the opportunity to photograph latex fashion model Rubber Dahlia and she definitely considers latex to be a huge passion of hers as well as her husband’s. After spending the day shooting some fantastic photos, I decided that it might be a good idea to make a short documentary piece that discusses not only the connection that the couple have in their relationship, but how their love of latex clothing is a big part of that bond. It would be a discussion on how a passion for the ‘second skin’ binds or brings them together, if you want to think about it that way.
This is just one of many ideas I have for creating some great original content this year. Stay tuned!
