On October 2nd, VISIONAIRE founders Cecilia Dean and James Kaliardos launched their 67th edition, FETISH, an exclusive collaboration with iconic fashion photographer Steven Klein at Sotheby’s. This edition explored a mixture of fetishes including altocalciphilia (the fetish for high heels), pitcophilia (the fetish for erotic pictures), and autagonistophilia (the fetish for being on camera).
The series consists of 10 limited photographic prints, each taken as a still from the series of films that were showcased during the exhibition. There are only 200 hand-numbered copies available, each delivered in a re-imagined three-piece light-tight photo box, signed by Klein himself, complete with the 10 original color archival photographic C-prints.
Optimist collaborated with Visionaire in regards to social media, creating the overall social plan, aligning contributors’ voices, inviting influencers and driving users back to the website.
