    WHY HAVE YOU BLANKED OUT THE MODEL FACES?? IT WAS NT LIKE THAT IN MJOLK’S ORIGINAL LOOKBOOK.. IS THERE A REASON WHY YOU ARE “DEFACING” SOMEONES ELSES WORK?

      I recognize the controversy in blanking out the model’s faces. I recognize and respect the work that models do, as well as that of the photographers and stylists. This is actually an issue I consider quite often.

      I made the decision to format the photos like that in order to highlight the work of the clothing designer, and present it in a “catalog” style format – rather than that of a photo shoot – to emphasize the clothing first and foremost. I don’t feel that it’s a misrepresentation of the work of the stylists, models, or photographers; anyone (including you) can see that the photos are blatantly altered.

      This blog is not commercial. It’s a personal visual exercise. It doesn’t represent any advertisers or brands. Instead, my goal is to present the work of a range of designers, to those that might otherwise miss their work. I feel that on balance I’m doing a service to the designers I feature by presenting their work.

      I welcome all views on this though, and will take all advice and input on best practices with full consideration and respect. Please feel free to contact me via comment or email at jamesrmcnally@gmail.com
