Fashion is far from passive and these confronting Paola Kudacki campaigns prove just how intense style editorials can get. Whether they feature models putting up a fistfight before the lens or casting a penetrating stare, these images prove that there are many ways in which this photographer's work packs a punch from the page.
Often working with naked or partially nude models, the artist is able to explore and invite a range of viewer reactions. Unexpected glances, actions or accessories come face to face with the observer, forcing his gaze one way, then the another.
Some of the most compelling confronting Paola Kudacki campaigns include characters suppressing heated aggression. A screwed up face, an exposed fist or a menacing glare make this selection of spreads occasionally accosting in nature.
