It is long overdue that society accepts we are all unique individuals whose identities are not dictated by the body we are born into. Non-binary visibility and conversation is paramount to bringing about this change. I talk to Richie Shazam, who is walking for Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler, Misbhv or Ashish, featuring photography in Vogue, and has previously performed in Zuecca Project Space (Italy).
Richie provides us with a photography series conceived with best friend and collaborator Briana Andalore. Their friendship is driven by their mutual passion to express body positivity and resilience. Both New York City natives have “uplifted each other through the good, bad and ugly”.
