England-born, New York-based photographer Alexi Lubomirski has become an established name within the fashion industry, shooting for such publications as Harper's Bazaar , Vogue and GQ , and working with cover stars such as Charlize Theron, Gwyneth Paltrow, Natalie Portman, Jennifer Lopez and Nicole Kidman, to name but a few. It was after shooting Lupita Nyong'o, however, that Lubomirski was struck by the homogeneity of the subjects he'd been hired to shoot professionally. Often when he submitted a list of models he was interested in shooting, responses would range along the lines of "we love her, but...," "her hair is a problem," "she is too dark" or "she is too light to make a statement."
In Diverse Beauty , Lubomirski aims to move beyond the underrepresentation of women from a range of ethnicities in fashion media. The volume compiles his photographs of beautiful women of every color, size, age and sexual orientation in a celebration of beauty that adds dimension to the standards so omniscient in Western fashion magazines and advertisements.
This handsome volume of cinematic fashion portraiture--featuring such subjects as Lupita Nyong'o, Rashida Jones, Salma Hayek, Demi Lovato, Anja Rubik, Jennifer Lopez, Chanel Iman, Hari Nef, Isabella Rossellini, Tyra Banks and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, among many others--is also a small step in the direction of changing societal norms.
