Volumized shoulders seem to be all of the rage for fashionistas like Lady Gaga, Kate Moss and designers alike. Photographer James Mountford recognizes this trend and turns it on its head by photographing a stunning series of photos that accentuate the hips.

While I would think most women would shy away from such an eccentric exaggeration of womanly shape, I used to also think this was true about the return of shoulder pads. If fashion has taught us anything, it’s that anything is possible.

Take a look at James Mountford’s ‘Ocean’ series for some gorgeously “hip” black and white shots.
