PHOTOGRAPHY: MAN CHILD BY SANJOG RAI
Posted on May 9, 2012
After reading about Leona Lewis taking her ‘love back’ from Kanye West due to his ‘minx dragging on the floor’ lyric from his latest single ‘Theraflu’, I came across this wonderful editorial shot by photographer Sanjog Rai who cites the ‘Gold Digger’ hit maker as his inspiration.
With a title such as Man Child, I don’t think you need me to explain what this has to do with Kanye – Taylor Swift, George Bush, Gretchen Wilson, not being able to perform on the main stage at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards…Need I go on?. But really for me it’s the the combination of fur, Louboutin’s, Louis Vuitton bags & Versace combined with the model’s almost arrogant ‘I can walk on air’ attitude all successfully show the “childish version of a successful grown up man.” Love it!
