Viewer Discretion Is Advised

Collage By Ellinor Forje

I became inspired to create a new collage after catching up on some magazine reading post-August's hectic weeks and post-Nicki Minaj's rebellious "Dazed" cover (quick aside: the cover where Nicki's dressed like a Stepford Wife is defiant, the second that has Nicki dressed like Nicki Minaj, is Nicki in her traditional attire - half nekked and compliant); to which I should add a post-novelty-nipple-tassels-wearing-Miley Cyrus, also.

The pictorials are from the seventh issue of "The Lab Magazine", the editorial where Darya Kosilova features as art director - if you recall? Contrary to what the images may convey, "The Lab Magazine" isn't an avant-garde version of Hugh Hefner's playmate. It's a publication that celebrates the best in music, art, fashion and film. Yes, it's read  for the articles.

In fact, I was tempted to throw in a photo of Kevin Hart (go on wit yo bad self) 'cause he looks so cute in his interview story. However, that would have quickly turned my carefully crafted creation into a: One of these things is not like the others. One of these things doesn't belong. And I don't mean the mighty Hart either.


  1. This is a bangin' collage, oh so perfect to start my moody Monday. Haven't checked out I-D but Ms Minaj dressed in clothing? Even for one shot is still worth checking out, since that's such a rarity these days. I think her covered up would make more of an impact or create more "shock value" than nekkidness lol


  2. Amazing pictures! Very inspiring!
