Love it or hate it, we’ve become an oversharing society that capitalizes on the convenience of mobile devices to point, shoot and publish our lives to the Web. The December issue of Vogue Italia captures this digital phenomenon with a spread by Stephen Meisel inspired by Twitter and TwitPic.
In the issue, the fashion photos are all framed by the recognizable and iconic style of photo-sharing sites like TwitPic. The issue also includes short status updates and even displays thumbnail-sized previews of other photos.
While we’re intrigued by the concept, we’re also aware that a few of the photos are pretty racy, and it’s hard to ascertain the point that the spread is trying to make. These photos certainly reflect the real-life risque social media behaviors of adults the world round (think Meghan McMain and Michael Beasely), but should that be celebrated or criticized?
