Title: Exotica: Pieces of Meat

Date: May 1, 2016

Location: New York City

Models: Michelle, Plantain

Exotica is a social commentary on the fetishization and objectification of black and Asian women. The series satirizes the treatment of these ethnic groups of women by actualizing common descriptors. For example, black women are often described to as "African Queens" and "chocolate."
Exotica was published as a zine, which was stylized to resemble a gourmet menu. The series was a collaboration between Nicole and Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) student Amanda Spera. All lingerie was hand made by Amanda. The series was shot in NYC bar Wise Men against their backdrop of marbled meat.
