Willy Chavarria and Steven Biccard on American Beauty

Artist Steven Biccard

Words Tom Czibolya

“Together we will make this the year that we unite across the lines of race, gender, country of origin and religion. We unite to dismantle hate and corruption by promoting the dignity of all people.”

When visiting the website of New York based fashion designer Willy Chavarria, this quote immediately catches your eye. And makes you pause. You catch yourself thinking how easy it is to make a political statement with your job. Probably that’s what the Copenhagen-based photographer Steven Biccard also thought. Together, the two of them are a perfect match and show us how beautifully work that is politically motivated can be staged. In this editorial, Willy and Steven present their view of today’s America.
