The face of illness and disease gets a makeover in the Richard Kern 'Medicated' photoshoot for the Vice Magazine Photo Issue 2011. The photographer, known for his provocative and bold shoots, reveals the ailments young women suffer from that go physically unnoticed in society. Each model holds up the medication(s) she is currently taking, for health issues ranging from more serious things like bipolar disorder and depression, to temporary issues like the common cold.
The Richard Kern 'Medicated' shoot uses real girls with little to no past modeling experience, shot in their own bedrooms or bathrooms. It is definitely an eye-opener to how many people use medication every day, and how these illnesses go unrecognized or are kept hidden from the outside world.
