BETWEEN HARSH REALITY & UTOPIAN BEAUTY BY SEB XAVIER {EXCLUSIVE}


London Based Photographer, Seb Xavier submitted his latest series for us here at Nakid and he tells us a bit about what inspired this story.

” I wanted to use beautiful and allegorical imagery to tell stories and to encapsulate some of the issues our world faces, I see art as a powerful tool to open people’s eyes to see the internal tensions that challenge us every day. It has been customary for society, and for art, to sublimate reality, to present its more favorable aspects. I wanted this collection of work to be the opposite, yet still somewhat adhere to the beauteous and glamourized façade that society presents itself with. Instead of portraying the victory of light over darkness, I wanted to give expression to mankind’s sense of insecurity and vulnerability in the modern world and to show how we are in a perennial juncture between the ugliness of truth and the beauty of deception, a permanent oxymoron.” -SEB
