Nothing will define the early 2000s for me like reality TV. It was like overnight everything from documentaries to games shows adopted the format with the goal of capturing a mixture of unscripted situations and actual occurrences that often featured a previously unknown cast who are instantly turned into ‘celebrities’ over night. But even though now that we have grown bored of the endless churning out of reality shows, we still thrive on the notion of ‘reality’ thanks to social media.
So it only seems natural that after years of being glued to our iPhone screens looking at behind the scenes shots and the everyday life of fashion models, that we would now start to actually get reality fashion shoots. Like Australian model and personal trainer Kim David Smith photographed by Erik Carter for the Nocturne series. Bathed in harsh lighting that shows both every flaw and every natural perfection, the Australian model is captured with everything on display in the realistic editorial all for the naked eye to see… But when we live in our Instagram world with unlimited filters and retouching tools at our finger tips, can we ever truly live in a world free of photoshop or do we still want little fantasy in our fashion?
