LOS ANGELES — Mia Isabella and Buck Angel have joined forces for a photo shoot that was shot by Haus of Se7en.
Photographer Se7en said the captured images represent the strength, beauty and pride of being transsexual.
“Having both Buck and Mia on set together was one of our most creative days yet," Se7en said. "Both are legends in their fields and a continued joy to have on my set and in my life."
It was the first time Se7en shot or met Angel.
“Buck Angel is one of the most courageous and determined people I’ve ever met," he said. "He’s a true pioneer, and what Buck brings to set is not only a perfect vibe and a sense of realism, but a wonderful soul with a warm heart. Buck is now one of my best friends and I hope to be able to shoot with him for many years to come. Point blank — Buck’s a truly cool motherfucker.”
Isabella, a long-time admirer of Angel, conceived the idea of shooting with Angel in order to present to younger transsexuals that being different is beautiful, and being proud and true to yourself is the only way to shine.
“I’m excited to share this with the world! It was such a pleasure to team up with two amazing artistic individuals to create the photo layout that we did,” Isabella said. “This was my second time rocking it out with kickass photographer Se7en, and as expected, rocking it out is exactly what we did. And to do this with an amazing talent, transsexual male superstar Buck Angel, was a dream come true. I hope everybody who sees these photos gets as inspired and excited as we were on the set.”
For Angel, the feeling was more than mutual. “Mia … well, there are no words to describe her, because she is just awesome. She’s very intelligent and sexy, my favorite kind of person. The energy on the shoot was great, and I always know when the energy is there, good things will come. I feel lots of gratitude when that happens.”
The photos are available for viewing here.
Isabella will be kicking off Gay Pride weekend in New York City with an appearance at Headquarters Gentlemen’s Club, hosting Fleshbot Friday, on Friday, June 28 at 9:30 p.m.
