Samuel Ellis Scheinman for i-D
Samuel Ellis Scheinman cast sibling trio Paloma, Sage, and Ama Elsesser for i-D's 40th Anniversary Edition. The three explain their importance as black artists within the fashion industry and their push to destabilize problematic norms throughout their work. The Elsesser's discuss their close contact with art from their parents both being experimental musicians and their grandfather who always encouraged them to follow their dreams within the modeling/art industry. Photographer Rahim Fortune captures the emotion between the siblings in these intimate b&w shots. Check out the inspiring story at i-D.
