Chances are you won’t stumble upon many editorials that people can easily relate to, editorials that aren’t afraid to disclose the everyday struggles rather than endlessly pointing towards the extraordinary. While it’s true that we all love to escape reality from time to time, only to chase the luxurious fantasies showcased in magazines, it’s the familiar grounds that resonate in the end. Much like An Le’s beautifully captured “Grey Lake” story talking about abandoned hopes, as photographed for Tush Magazine’s latest issue.
If you feel An Le’s photo shoot is somehow special and quite unusual, you’re probably right, as the photographer’s inspiration for it was triggered by an article about a 21-year-old girl who committed suicide after 200 job rejections. A statement, a reflection of the issue of today’s unemployment of young recent-graduates, a tale of desperation and struggles, the shoot uses fashion as a greater expression.
