НовостиVogue выпустили 15 фотопроектов о женщинах
в честь юбилея журнала

От сотрудниц Белого дома до рыбачек с Аляски

К 125-летию издания американский Vogue выпустил 15 фотопроектов, посвящённых женщинам: как объяснила редактор Салли Сингер, целью этого масштабного проекта было показать современных американок во всём разнообразии и красоте. Действительно, в съёмках приняли участие самые разные героини — в том числе сотрудницы Белого дома и НАСА, участницы этнических конкурсов красоты и родео, военнослужащие, консервативные протестантки, лесбиянки, представительницы субкультур и рыбачки, живущие на Аляске.

Как отметили в редакции, все эти фотопроекты были задуманы до последних политических событий — избрания Трампа и протестов, но от этого не проигрывают, а, наоборот, смотрятся ещё интереснее в свете произошедшего. Посмотреть все съёмки можно на сайте журнала.

In January 2016, the armed services lifted a controversial ban on women serving in positions of direct combat. For the first time in American history, women soldiers would be allowed to drive tanks, fire mortars, lead infantry soldiers into combat, and serve in elite special forces units like the Green Berets, the Navy SEALs, or Air Force Pararescue. Photographer Jackie Nickerson went to Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in Honolulu on assignment for Vogue. Nickerson described the service members she met as confident, upbeat, incredibly polite, and utterly self-assured. “These women are fantastic,” she said. “I wanted to make pictures that empowered women, that captured women who were strong, who are part of defending the USA. They did not disappoint.” In celebration of Vogue's 125th birthday we photographed American women, coast to coast. Tap the link in our bio to see the full project.

“For many of the women in my life, art is central to their life and work,” says Lorna Simpson, the photographer and multimedia artist who captured a series of portraits of her female contemporaries for Vogue. She chose subjects spanning an array of mediums, identities, and professions—Pakistani sculptor Huma Bhabha sits in a shadow, assistant curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art Rujeko Hockley, pictured, reclines in a shaft of sunlight on the stairs—but they all have one prominent thing in common: Simpson’s breathtaking admiration.

How many of us, no matter where our parents or grandparents came from, grew up glued to Miss America on television? So perhaps it should come as no surprise that people who arrived here more recently, bringing their own unique ideas about beauty and fashion, would embrace this all-American ritual as well. Photographer Benjamin Rasmussen went to some of the the far-flung beauty pageants held by immigrant communities throughout the U.S. He found more than 25 of these events—from Miss India Florida to Miss Liberia US, Miss Arab USA to Miss Texas Czech-Slovak. “I avoided people who had spent their lives in pageants,” he says. “A lot of the participants I photographed were in law school or pre-med, first or second generation Americans, and this was the first time most of them were involved in a contest like this.” In celebration of Vogue's 125th birthday we photographed American women, coast to coast.

It’s easy to be distracted by the mythology of sororities—the clandestine initiation ceremonies, the college rivalries—but it’s often deeper than that. Alpha Kappa Alpha, the first sorority for African-American women, was founded back in 1908. The work the AKAs have quietly been doing in their communities for more than a century can’t be ignored, whether it be raising awareness for mental health on campus, building schools in South Africa, or lobbying for civil rights in Congress, as they did as early as 1938. In a time of great political uncertainty, when the nation is more divided than it has ever been, that legacy of unity and commitment to service seems particularly vital. “When I think of how old and rich this sisterhood is, and what American people—black people and women—have been through in that time, it gives me a certain confidence,” says Daeja Langston, who joined the AKAs at Spelman College just under two years ago. “I know that whatever happens next, this too shall pass.” In celebration of Vogue's 125th birthday we photographed American women, coast to coast.

Across the Southwest and especially in L.A., retro references have long been a vital element of Latina style. But throwback looks are not merely data points in fashion’s larger recycling of eras, cuts, and proportions. “A lot of young Chicanos want to connect to their history,” explained John Carlos De Luna, a vintage clothing dealer and the owner of Barrio Dandy Vintage, a showroom in Boyle Heights. Isabella Ferrada, pictured, describes her friends as a group of “young, queer, woke, brown artists,” and her makeup and style inspiration as coming from drag, clowns, and her mother and aunts in the 1980s and 90s.

In the exquisite landscape of coastal Alaska, fishing is not just a job: It is a social tie, a way of life that carries women through the flux of extreme seasons. Women of these communities rarely see each other from June until September, as each boat fishes its own region of the sea. But in these summer months, many towns like Homer, Alaska receive a lot of visitors. Wendy McCune, pictured, and her husband, Mike, co-own Ocean Swell Ventures, which plans custom outings like surfing, stand-up paddling, and hunting and fishing for tourists.
