Isolated Heroes is the result of a collaboration between photographer David Sims and designer Raf Simons. Taken in the summer of 1999 the portraits are of non professional models street cast by Raf Simons wearing his Spring Summer 2000 collection. Each boy is portrayed with a fixed gaze and a dose of realism that David Sims has become renowned for. All the models are photographed against a plain backdrop and shot in a mixture of colour and black and white. The sequence of faces are each credited with the models first name and a serial number. Initially conceived as a work in progress this collaboration became a highly regarded body of work in its own right, bridging the worlds of fashion, photography and art.
