About the work

"Genderless" centers on a strong central concept – that fashion has no gender – and is flawlessly executed in every detail. Through Suri's lens, gender-neutral clothing is the new norm, and the so-called specified rules of fashion are broken.


Says Suri, "We no longer live in an era where males can't wear clothes designed for females or vice versa. We're moving toward a world where gender-neutral clothing is acceptable and there are no rules."

He credits his team and careful pre-production work with the strength of the resulting images. "We were able to shoot around 15 different looks in a day. Not much was done during the post-production process. I just did a little color correction and that's all."

Visualization is the most important part. If you can't see it in your head, then achieving it can be troublesome.
