British artist Brian Griffin created this welding mask editorial that seeks to explore the connection between fashion and feminism. The entire series was created by the artist with full range and no boundaries. By concealing the faces of its subjects, the series allows its viewer to see only the fashion aspect of each image.

Brian Griffin worked with stylist Emma Clifton to create this series tilted 'Weld,' which has been photographed in black and white to create a monochromatic color scheme. The images will appear in Disegno's issue No.8 and are accompanied with an essay written by Elizabeth Wilson. Similar to the images, the essay also addresses the connection between fashion and feminism.

There are similarities between the images and the written piece, which is that they both convey the idea that fashion creates a spectacle. The women in these images are bowing away from this idea by shielding their faces with non-traditional welding masks.
