Petra Collins, photographer and curator for the all-female creative collective The Ardorous, has established herself as downtown New York City’s cool girl with a Pink Ladies attitude. Her work is motivated by women (her friends and fellow Rookie pals, like Tavi Gevinson) and by that which women are expected to hide or repress: menstrual cycles, masturbation, pubic hair. The Toronto native has built a portfolio of portrait photography and fashion editorials—including a shoot for FLARE that won a National Magazine Award last year—with a soft-lens and cotton-candied approach; her work has also appeared in Vice, New York and Wonderland, as well as in gallery shows in NYC and Art Basel Miami Beach.
