The artistic tool that is duct tape

It’s a pretty simple fact that duct tape is possibly one of the greatest inventions every created. You can use it for just about anything from covering sharp edges or a damaged file cabinet to keeping water out of the bottom of a boat (Check out the episode of the show Myth Busters) and of course, taping ducts.

But in recent years, it has become a frequent tool of creative minded people. Some have even made entire wardrobes out of it.

Check out some of the cool things people have done with duct tape. Enjoy!

The artistry of clothing in modern subcultures

As you may know, a good bit of my work as a photographer focuses on models that seem to fall into one of the wider categories of three major subculture. These would be Goth, punk and emo. Well recently, I decided to do a photo shoot with an amazing young lady that also fits into an alternative culture in that she is an avid raver. That being the case, I’ll include that into the mix as well.

Model Kelly Knox is not just a pretty face

At first glance of many of her photos….

the beautiful Kelly Knox, a model based out of the UK, seems like just another stunning┬áblonde bombshell. But, if you take a closer look, you’ll find that there is one big difference. Kelly has no left forearm!

She was born with this condition and as a child refused a prosthesis. Since that time on, she has never wore won.

In 2008, she won the BBC series “Britain’s Missing Top Model” and has been dominating the fashion scene ever since.

As a photographer who personally believes that models do not have to fit any specific cookie-cutter mold, and that beauty comes in many forms, I think she is an inspiration for both disabled and able-bodied people everywhere.
