At first glance, it's difficult to label model Seth Atwell. And that's the point. Self-identification isn't supposed to fall into one category or another. Rather, it's meant to express how we feel and see ourselves in the simplest sense.
Atwell is an androgynous, gender-fluid star on the rise who has modeled for both men's and women's clothing labels. Most recently, Atwell walked in the Hood by Air show at New York Fashion Week, leaving showgoers to admire the incredible mix of masculine-meets-feminine physicality.
Intrigued by Atwell's ambiguity, photographer Gabrielle Revere
, who specializes in intimate portraits, sought to capture Atwell's true essence: that beauty is truly
in the eye of the beholder. What she produced was a series, shot at Atwell's home in Toronto that are not just incredibly striking, but add to a larger cultural conversation surrounding sex, gender, and the unrealistic beauty expectations set by society.
Ahead, Revere opens up about blurring these lines — and how Atwell is just the person to do it.
