Portrait | Malte Paulsen by Saverio Cardia

Malte Paulsen by Saverio Cardia

I've never been a huge fan of men's fashion. I think I've said this before, and my position hasn't really changed. Personally I'm just not as interested mostly because I'm not wearing any of it, but also because I love curves and lines and angles and shapes and I just feel like the male form tends to limit the expression of those things.

That being said, this series by Saverio Cardia of male model Malte Paulsen really inspired me. The marrying of the male and female with the styling and posing really speaks to me. The whole thing is like something straight out of a Lady Gaga video. I really appreciate the new lines that the outfits he wear have created, and the softer quality that it brings to he body.

My favourite picture is number six. The wire skirt and pantyhose are obviously feminine, and where the belt connects to his waist reminds me decidedly of bondage, but at the same time, his face and hair are most definitely masculine. If I folded the picture in half and only looked at his face, I wouldn't see any hint of femininity. The juxtaposition between the top and bottom halves of the picture creates a really fantastic story that I can't get enough of. I just goes to show what a great working relationship between a model and photographer can accomplish.
