Omahyra & Boyd was published to accompany the exhibition at the Kamel Mennour gallery in Paris. It features photographer Ellen von Unwerth's series of images of the model couple Omahyra Mota and Boyd Holbrook. Omahyra was a muse of Jean-Paul Gaultier. Her punkish, boyish looks are a stark contrast to Boyd's androgynous appearance. The images are erotic; they capture intimate moments between the couple and blur the boundaries of gender and sexuality. Art direction by Sam Shahid.
