Embracing the Nude: Reilly Davidson on Kanye West's 'Yeezy Season 6' Zine

The sheer size of this deluxe (almost 11x17-inch) staple-bound collection zine sweeps the reader away to the desert, where a variety of female subjects are swathed in nude and grey clothing. The photographs, by Jackie Nickerson, are marked by a distinct bluish hue that adds to the mystery of a journey through an otherwise abandoned desert scape. Published by Steidl, this text-free volume of enigmatic full-bleed images effectively captures a vision of allure, juxtaposed against the ashes of the Santa Monica Mountains, post-wildfire. Nickerson documents the current Yeezy collection—from shoes to clothing to accessories—with extreme care and intimacy. For example, in her presentation of the new Yeezy sneaker release, above, Nickerson toys with light and form to entice the viewer to imagine the person behind the shadow.
