Today we have Part 8, titled ‘EMPOWERMENT’, from photographer Zach Phan, part of his exclusive interview and editorial series with NAKID titled, ‘Les Inclassables‘. Starring model Rosie at FOLIO, with mua/hair by Marianne Caron and styling by Camille Internoscia, ‘Les Inclassables‘, french for The Indefinables, ‘refers to the unique quality of the youth of Montréal with different walks of life.’ says Phan. The series is inspired by the interrogation scenes on Law & Order. Of all the amazing never ending tv shows to model an interview/photo series around, that is definitely the top of the list. Zach seeks to understand his subject’s perspective in a series of questions, similar to those riveting SVU/Criminal Intent episodes, revealing insights about their experiences at school, others misconception of them or in general about people and why people become or are, depressed.

Zach Phan, based in Montreal, Canada, is a freelance and fashion photographer who seeks to empower his subjects with the use of rich narrative, eccentric visuals, and effortless movement.
