Controversial President Photography

In God We Trust by Nican Robinson Features Forbidden Affairs

— January 22, 2013 — Naughty
With Barack Obama's second-term inauguration over and done with, those who want to fill in the gap with something just as presidential may want to take a gander at the In God We Trust: The Making of a Presidential Candidate photo series. Controversial to say the least, it depicts candidates in seedy situations, from steamy trysts in rundown washrooms to snorting cocaine and more.

The In God We Trust: The Making of a Presidential Candidate series was shot by photographer Nican J. Robinson. Starring REDnyc models, the photoshoot was styled by Samantha Swade. Prim and proper for all of the forbidden affairs, the series depicts "a story about aspiration, betrayal and debates kept behind closed doors," as written on Fashionising.
Trend Themes
1. Controversial Political Art - Artists can create similar controversial pieces to spark debate and start conversations about political figures and issues, potentially gaining attention for themselves and their messages.
2. Boundary-pushing Photography - Photographers can use their skills and creativity to capture unconventional or taboo subjects, challenging societal norms and expectations, potentially creating unique and engaging visual content.
3. Provocative Styling - Stylists and fashion designers can incorporate provocative elements and themes into their work, pushing boundaries and attracting attention from audiences and consumers who are interested in bold and daring fashion choices.
Industry Implications
1. Art - The controversial and attention-grabbing nature of this photography series could inspire artists in the contemporary art world to create their own pieces that challenge the status quo and provoke discourse.
2. Photography - Photographers working in fashion, editorial, or artistic fields could use this series as a source of inspiration to experiment with different styles, subjects, and methods, potentially leading to the creation of new trends in the industry.
3. Fashion - This series can serve as a source of inspiration for fashion designers and stylists who want to incorporate political and provocative themes into their work, creating bold or controversial pieces for runway shows, editorial shoots, and advertising campaigns.
