Venus Beach is an Afrofemale planet dreamed by French photographer Pol Kurucz. On Venus Beach synthetic is organic, male is female and color is light. Galaxies away from racism, misogyny and terrestrial inequalities the inhabitants of Venus beach live a free, eccentric and glamorous life. Through visual allegories and pop aesthetics each Venusian uses their singularities to provoke us and challenge gender and aesthetic norms. Venus Beach was shot in Brooklyn with African and Afro American models only. The series mixes fine art and fashion elements and features creations from fresh local brands.
Pol works on eccentric fashion and fine art projects from his Sao Paulo studio. His photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including: Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, The Guardian (Arts), Adobe Create, Hunger TV, Sleek and Nylon.
