'raw flesh' by clayton cubit

photographer clayton cubit works simultaneously in commercial and artistic photography. as a result his commercial work is just as intriguing as his more art based pieces. one series which illustrates this perfectly is his ‘raw flesh’ cover feature for zink magazine. the series features models showing of clothing, accessories and jewelry along with a most unusually prop – raw meat. in each shot the model is adorned with a different meat covering a different part of the body. one features a steak held to the model’s eye, while another uses thinly sliced meat wrapped around the model’s arm like a second skin. the choice of meat and the arrangement coincides with the products on show accentuating the pieces. case in point is the fish bone necklace used is tandem with a corset like top. in addition to fashion photography, cubit also works in portraiture; while his art photography covers a range of subjects from sex to violence.


  • could be a commercial to get you to eat meat
