Aneta Pajak In 'Atelier D'Artiste' By Koto Bolofo For Numéro #160 February 2015 

Model Aneta Pajak explores the ‘Atelier D’Artiste’ in Numéro #160 February 2015. AOC has a visceral response to the beauty of fashions styled by Irina Marie and sublime black and white photographs by self-taught, South African photographer Koto Bolofo.  

Visual cues run wild in these images: is Aneta exploring a gender-neutral, artistic studio or is she in the fashion-predictable studio of a male artist? Is she the prototypical muse of the male mind? What is the significance of a large — presumably male — hand at her throat and in her face? How has this male artistic vision — and the powerful art world institutions behind it — defined Aneta and millions — no billions — of female identities worldwide and for the last 3000 years?

There are no answers in ‘Atelier D’Artiste’, a Numéro #160 February 2015 fashion editorial that may be nothing more than a celebration of the male mind and fashion’s support for traditional gender-based power relationships. This isn’t how these images strike me, however.

Do I share a vibe with photographer Koto Bolofo? Rest assured that I will answer that question for myself and AOC readers. ~ Anne

Amy Goalen Explores Male-Practised Yoga In Future Book 'Inside the Warrior'

My Modern Met shares an extensive feature and interview with LA photographer Amy Goalen’s project exploring male yoga warriors.

To show the mindful beauty of male-practised yoga, Goalen is creating a book titled Inside the Warrior - The Masculine Side of Yoga with writer Julian DeVoe. “One of the reasons we practice yoga is to embrace our present moment and to practice patience and self acceptance,” she reminds us. “Getting to interview and photograph as many different men as possible will allow us to create a book that will speak to all men.” 

Framing each yogic pose as a heroic stance, Goalen shoots from floor-level. Her photography technique, she says, has strengthened with her own personal yoga practice.
