At the intersection of fine art and fashion photography there is Roe Ethridge. The American photographer is represented internationally by the Gagosian Gallery and he invariably produces work worthy of contemplation no matter the commission, be it for page or hanging in a Chelsea gallery. The Spring 2015 issue of i-D features a story by Ethridge in which he trains his lens on Lida Fox. Artistic and expressive in her own right, Lida makes for a perfect subject in this Marie Chaix-styled story titled “If you won’t let us dream, we won’t let you sleep.” Keeping in mind this is the “activist issue,” the topic of is ever present throughout the pages of the story. “You’ve got to do something about the causes you believe in,” says Lida speaking with i-D. “Speak up for what you believe is right and avoid being hypocritical.” There is no room for hypocrisy in this story, however as Lida Fox epitomizes truth.
