There is an eccentrically erotic nature to the Refinement and Vulgarity photo series that makes it both captivating and confusing. The confusing part comes into play when you try to figure out exactly how you feel about each image and the series overall. It encourages you to step into a dream state in which strange occurrences and sightings are the norm, feeding your creative and imaginative self.

Shot by New York-based photography duo 'formento+formento,' the Refinement and Vulgarity photo series offers an explosion of sensual, surreal and vibrant aspects in order to assault your senses. By doing so, it really puts into question the meaning behind the concepts of refinement and vulgarity. Perhaps the two are in reality interchangeable?

The Refinement and Vulgarity photo series was styled by Phil Gomez with hair by Kimberly Bordeux and makeup by Avery Carrig.
