Cameron Russell on Being a Feminist in Fashion
In her interview, Cameron talks about being a feminist in modeling and the experience on set. “I’ve been on shoots the photographer is really famous and the magazine is important, and they’re taking a shot and I think, ‘I don’t want that shot; I don’t want to create an image of a woman being sexualized in that way. I don’t think it’s crucial.’ But can I articulate why that is? Because, really, that’s my whole job: to be the character in someone’s fantasy. When I agree to show up [to a shoot], that’s what I’m agreeing to. So if I’m not walking away, how am I negotiating that moment? It’s very hard. I’ve spoken up and lost jobs, but it’s a calculated risk because I’m at a place in my career when I can say no and it doesn’t make a big difference.”
