Los Angeles based photographer Joshua Cobos wanted to take a different view on things with his most recent submission to Nakid. He wanted to do a genderless shoot with two LA punks (and professional models) Tymber and Hobbes. Hobbes prefers no pronouns or at least a they/them, and Tymber is seen here with the wild curly hair (since the shoot he has shaved it). Together with really rad stylist, Sarah Hartmann, they took to the streets and neighborhoods of L.A., attending the $1 thrift piles that are every sunday at Jet Rag in Hollywood. They found their perfect mix of retro vintage meets modern hipster and the clothing is a combination of Cobos personal wardrobe, Hartmann’s wardrobe, and a couple items that Cobos personally suggested Hobbes and Tymber bring to the shoot. Shot in his old neighborhood in Hollywood near Sunset and Gardner, Cobos presents us with a youthful and out of the ordinary scene rarely showcased in fashion and modeling. As the world changes and the LGBT community becomes more openly accepted in mainstream, this shoot just shows that we have so much more to explore in the world of fashion and modeling , taboos to break, and new frontiers to explore – definitely something we here at Nakid embrace with open arms!
All images were photographed on a Yashica TLR using 120 transparency film from the mid 2000s. You can see more of Joshua Cobos work at the links below, enjoy!
