Photographer Nicholas Maggio recently launched his self-described “passion project.” Under the title “Wild Hearts, Blue Jeans, and White T-Shirts” he rounds up a number of beauties including Kylie Cusick, Taja Feistner and current Highsnobiety Magazine cover girl Adrianne Ho among others, sporting nothing more than a white T-shirt and pair of jeans. Describing his intention behind this low-key photo editorial, Maggio stated the following:
The idea is to “strip” everything from these models except for a standard tee, no makeup, no hair stylist, no direction, and take pictures of them being them. Give them the opportunity to do whatever they want and be whomever they want for 20 minutes or so. With a career consisting of being told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it, it’s fun to give a little power back to the girls and let them have total control of the images. It gives the project a human quality and an aspect of realism I hope people can connect with.
