Photos Of The Day: "Boundaries"

Harley Weir

Harley Weir is a Fine Arts graduate of Central St. Martin’s College of Art and Design who focuses on youth culture, raw moments, and the natural human form as the main aesthetic draw in her photography. Along with many features in pop-culture and high-end fashion magazines, Weir’s photography was featured in a section of the October 2016 issue of “Boys Don’t Cry,” Frank Ocean’s print magazine, released along with his album Blonde. The images featured in “Boys Don’t Cry” are a part of a larger collection named “Boundaries” which was Weir’s first solo exhibition aired from 2 December 2016- 19 February 2017. Weir is known for capturing a sense of intimacy in her photos, a wonderful quality for outlining the finer details in fashion shots as well as adding depth to her more creative shots. 

Weir’s personal style of getting up-close-and-personal with her subjects is displayed all throughout Boundaries. Another segment of Boundaries is “The New Masculinity,” styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois and designer Grace Wales Bonner, with styling assistants Ashlee Hill and Bojana Kozarevic. “The New Masculinity” is shot in Dakar, Senegal next to and around Lake Retba, and includes local wrestlers wearing a combination of their own clothing and the clothing Bonner selected from her own collection titled “Ebonics.” These photos not only show Bonner and Sarr-Jamois’ vision of black masculinity, but they also show an elegant portrayal of authenticity that Weir is known for producing. 

Within the last two weeks, Weir has come out to Dazed and Confused Magazine in an interview about how she wants to redirection her creative process and focus less on photographs with models and more on images without the presence of life that leave more to the imagination. She has many reasons for altering her platform, one being the political side of art and photography that she wants to avoid entirely. As a photographer, Weir has had issues with models claiming credit for her work, “It’s a very interesting thing to hear what a model has to say about what you did that day. And how it belongs to them, really, more than it belongs to you,” she tells Dazed.
