Fade Into Three Colors, a photo editorial by Weisi Dai

In the film Three Colors: Blue (1993), French actress Juliette Binoche and director Krzysztof Piesiewicz tell the story of a woman who tries to disassociate herself completely from society after a dramatic accident, but she ends up realizing it is impossible to fully remove oneself from human connections. The movie is the first of three films composing The Three Color Trilogy, loosely themed on the three political ideals that triggered the French Republic. White is about equality, in the film we watch a man, Karol Karol (Zbigniew Zamachowski), who was left in humiliating circumstances. With no money or friends, left while living in poverty in Warsaw, Karol begins to restore equality to his life through revenge. Red is about fraternity and tells a story of human interconnections. The three movies are individually considered as an anti-tragedy, an anti-comedy, and an anti-romance. —Photo Editorial by Weisi Dai, styling Misha Lee, makeup Miya Chuang, hair Miley Shen, models Sofi Berelidze and Pirina D

On a sunny day in hot July, children eagerly lap up melting sundaes and chow on some Coney Island chili fries, strolling the sand dusted boardwalk with mama and old Pops. “Isn’t life grand, dear?” Mom whispers into dad’s ear as she sweetly kisses his head. Indeed it is, for those who can afford it. Nestled under the steps of a merry go round just meters from the Coney Island boardwalk lives an invisible man. His decrepit figure and hapless fortune has deemed him unseen to society, yet he is just 1 of over 60,000 New Yorkers who hold membership to this impoverished underworld. “It wasn’t …

This is the third editorial in a collection dedicated to upcoming artists and photographers living outside the circles of major fashion centers. In this story Nashville-based photographer Jesse Koska brings Southern innocence to the edge of darker nuances. “With cold concrete, dixie cotton, and a touch from winters death covered forest, we captured a blend of 19th century sweet and eerie.” Model Ash at MACS|AMAX
