Bizarrely Clawed Beauties

The Outsider Series Seems Inspired by 'Edward Scissorhands'

— August 27, 2011 — Fashion
As though inspired by the cult classic film 'Edward Scissorhands,' The Outsider photo series follows a woman marred by her mechanically clawed hands. Although a beautiful woman, it appears that no one can look past this physical eccentricity, hence the title of the photo shoot.

Shot by Jakarta-based fashion photographer Nicoline Patricia Malina, The Outsiders photo series falls in line with her other narrative-heavy spread. Although Malina often focuses on stories of love and romance, The Outsider editorial is one of rejection and loneliness. In fact, Malina's photo shoots are easily recognizable for the amount of color that saturates each frame, which embrace these happy themes. The Outsider photo series, on the other hand, is shot completely in black-and-white to illustrate quite bluntly how much it diverges from her other work.
Trend Themes
1. Mechanical Prosthetics - Disruptive innovation opportunities lie in the development of advanced and aesthetically pleasing mechanical prosthetics.
2. Narrative Photography - Exploring narrative photography in unconventional and thought-provoking ways opens up new possibilities for creative storytelling.
3. Embracing Uniqueness - There is a growing trend of celebrating individuality and embracing what makes each person unique, challenging traditional beauty standards.
Industry Implications
1. Fashion - The fashion industry has the potential to incorporate mechanical prosthetics in their designs, creating avant-garde and inclusive collections.
2. Film and Entertainment - The use of narrative-heavy and visually striking photography in films and other forms of entertainment can enhance storytelling and create memorable experiences for audiences.
3. Beauty and Cosmetics - The beauty industry can play a role in promoting self-acceptance and diversity by showcasing unconventional beauty standards and offering products tailored to individual needs.
