Famed photog David LaChapelle could not have picked a better model than trans model Carmen Carrera to be the face (and body) of Life Ball’s posters!
And in the case of promoting the upcoming AIDS charity event in Austria, David went with less is more, as in, Carmen’s completely nekkid!
Of course, with the motto of this year’s event as "The Garden Of Earthly Delights", an Adam and Eve theme only seemed fit.
The 29-year-old exudes an ethereal air in both sets of posters, one with male genitalia and the other with female, as the writing reads, "I'm Adam. I'm Eve. I'm Me."
See the uncensored poster …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
David even explained of the idea behind the artwork, saying:
"Gender lines are blurred and every person is unique in how they see themselves. For me the body is more than something to be looked at as an object of sexual gratification. The body is a beautiful housing for the soul that we are celebrating in this picture."
Yes for celebrating beauty in all its forms!! We love this message!
Carmen also furthered the point, sharing:
"Your gender should not matter in your heart or in the way you express your personality. We shouldn’t be afraid to stick to a model, because there are so many types of diverse people on this planet. My message is: beauty has no gender. And at the end of the day beauty is beauty."
