    About The Work

    Photographer Matin Zad collaborated with design duo gg-ll to realize This Way Up, an unconventional, art-inspired 2013 campaign for the New York-based fashion line Duckie Brown. Zad has been recognized for his images blending art, fashion, and portraiture, as is exemplified by this limited edition photograph. Here, high art is explicitly referenced—the model, donning art handling gloves, unpacks a replica of the ancient Greek statue the Venus de Milo—within a stark white, gallery-like setting. And while the man’s face is obscured by the bust, his exquisite blue jacket commands the scene, reminding the viewer of the image’s origin in fashion.
