The Eye of the Beholder

The Eye of the Beholder is a fashion story by Diver & Aguilar that blurs the boundary between fashion and historical portraiture, as well as grappling with the idea of truth and authenticity in photography.

“In asking the question “Were these photographs taken in 1936?”, we are drawing a direct comparison to the work of Dorothea Lange, who at the time along with Walker Evans was documenting America and the great depression for the FSA. The difference being that her pictures to the best of her ability were her truth, they are technically factual and a historical record, where as this project is a work of fiction.”
