REINHARDT KENNETH // HATE IS A VIRUS
During the Covid-19 global pandemic, Los Angeles based indonesian fashion photographer Reinhardt Kenneth launched a fashion campaign to fight asian discrimination through a serie of photographs with the hashtag #hateisavirus.
WeirdBrain is proud to be part of this project as the brand is (half) asian owned and is particulary concerned. Two pieces were used to illustrate the Chapter 2 of Reinhardt vision.
In a world where the president refers a global pandemic as the "CHINESE VIRUS" or the "KUNG FLU", enough is enough. Let's breed compassion & together CANCEL xenophobia"
