Keniya and Noah

Mycoze is a prosexe queer feminist photographer based in Tiohtià:ke (known as Montreal). Most of his projects are collaborations between the models and herself. Mycoze want to be a safe space and environment of creation for queer and woman models. In this set, he portrayed Keniya and Noah.

How did the idea for the series come about?

I wanted to create new images that are an honest representation of my models and their bodies. With this project, my goal is to diversify the aesthetic landscapes surrounding us and bring a new perspective on body representation.

“I aspire to deconstruct the cliché of the woman object by capturing the models in different angles and positions to show their authenticity and power.“

Can we photograph the female body in a more powerful way?

The female body is in itself powerful. With my work I want to grasp its diversity by portraying marginalized bodies. I aspire to deconstruct the cliché of the woman object by capturing the models in different angles and positions to show their authenticity and power.

How would you define beauty?

Beauty is everywhere. It is often hidden in the places where we forget to look. This is the reason why it’s important to deconstruct beauty standards and take a different path!

What inspires you and what makes you happy?

I’m inspired by feminist artists, photographers and activists. I enjoy cinema, photography and art. I’m happy when I hang out with my cat, but also when I look into my partner’s eyes. Developing my own films, creating new projects, collaborating with incredible people that help my work grow are all things that bring me joy. I also can’t forget about playing with my sex toys; LELO I’m talking about you!

Film or digital?

Film! It is textured and warm while I find digitals cold and flat. Film pushes me further and gives me an opportunity to look at the human body in a different way.

Lastly, what’s next for you?

I’m working on a new personal series. Be on the look out for several collaborations, exhibitions and my website, finally!
