Nadia Lee Cohen's "The Pageant".
Combining the ideals of an amplified reality with the signature surrealist style consistent throughout her work, Nadia Lee Cohen breathes a new fascination into the typical American Dream with her latest work for Issue 12 of Hunger Magazine, "The Pageant".
We caught up with her this week to discuss the inspirations behind her recent work.
"The idea of Beauty Pageants has always fascinated me, I am attracted to the stigma the surrounds them; whether from the controversy of child pageant stars, the awkward answers given to questions, or the mistakes made when presenting awards. I wanted to create a shoot inspired by the aforementioned controversial elements while maintaining the melodramatic and exaggerated glamour of beauty pageants."- Nadia Lee Cohen.
