Embrace The Avant-Garde With Kolor's 'Glam Trash' Photography

Acquaint yourself with provocative Rio de Janeiro-based photography collective, kolor. Avant-garde characters and neon colors populate the arresting photographs in each ‘Zone’ series, which depict themes of kinky sexuality, political discord, and gender fluidity. Established in 2015 by Franco-Hungarian photographer Pol Kurucz, kolor is here to challenge your conformities through their captivating ‘glam trash’ aesthetic.

‘Zone’ shoots take place in kolor’s studio, set to the backdrop of “apocalyptic suburban junkyards, palaces and other epic locations in São Paulo and Rio.” Inspired by contemporary social issues, each kolor photo series exhibits a disharmonious air designed to simultaneously captivate and discomfort the viewer.

Kolor subjects include models, celebrities, and actors who create wonderfully bizarre visual scenes. “Central to the collective’s principles is questioning normality and exposing the dangers of forced conformity.” Founder Pol Kurucz, who comes from a “multi-minority family,” uses his own background as creative inspiration. From BDSM to drag culture to themes of femininity, kolor glamorizes the unconventional.
