Isolated Heroes
An exhibition by Raf Simons. Photography by David Sims


The series of photographs, collected under the banner 'Isolated Heroes', are the result of the collaboration British photographer David Sims and Belgian menswear designer Raf Simons undertook in the summer 1999.
Featured on the pictures are Raf Simonsí models, dressed in his collection for Spring-Summer 2000; Each boy is credited with a serial number and his own first name. 'Isolated Heroes' both black and white and colour photographs.

This collaboration was not a chance meeting. Both Sims and Simons had been outspoken about their mutual admiration, mostly press interviews. Although the interest in each other's work developed into firm friendship, they only decided to work together in the wake of Simons' Spring-Summer 2000-collection. Originally intended as a work-in-progress, Sims' photographs of Simons' models soon became a body of work it's own right.

The photographs of 'Isolated Heroes' were never intended for more promotional purposes. They even transcend more traditional photography, as they reach for a timeless quality, devoid of signs of the times or traces of tenderness. The pictures encapsulate both Sims' photography and Simons' vision with clarity and precision. The 'Isolated Heroes'-project deals with beauty, youth, masculinity and the perfect isolation of all these preoccupations. Above all, the series are about individuality, the keyword that sets both Sims' photography and Simons' designs apart within their own specific fields. Sims and Simons share the same notions of aesthetics: honest, untouched, pure and real.

From the start of his career, in early nineties, the pictures of David Sims made a huge impact on fashion photography in general. His stark and direct images contrasted with the depictions of exotic glamour and extravagant luxury, the common staple of most fashion magazines. He injected fashion photography with a dose of realism and empathy, never patronizing, always sympathizing. Most importantly, his use of non-professional models (mostly culled from his circle of friends) made the industry re-evaluate the dictum of beauty.

In his own right, Raf Simons also changed men's fashion. More than just presenting clothing items, he created a world of his own, incorporating fashion, video, music, photography and art. Endearingly honest about his influences (youth culture, behavioural codes) his work, now spanning over seven years, draws on feelings and attitudes. His seasonal presentations feature only one-off teenage models, cast from the streets of Antwerp; in using them, Simons not only pleads for a democratic notion of humanity and beauty, but he also links his designs with the original inspirations.

Not one of the portrayed boys in 'Isolated Heroes' is a professional model. They are either too 'strange' or too 'ordinary' to fit the mould of supermodels. Yet, through the eyes of Sims and Simons, they are made visible, without the aid of gimmicks or theatrical enhancements. 'Isolated Heroes' is a sequence of faces and expressions, mindful boys and stern young men, their gaze fixed. They express nothing but their own personality; they give everything away but their own thoughts. The photographs don't make them more beautiful, as in traditional (fashion) portraiture; each face is a peaceful vindication of modern perception of beauty, a resolute alternative to the clichťd glorification of male strength.











This looks interesting. Anyone knows more links to the exhibition or/and the book?
