Zones: The ZONE initiative was launched in 2015 by the kolor art collective in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The project is split into series of photos called zones each defined by a distinctive style, texture, theme and atmosphere. The project was inspired by Rio's epic drag scene, local artists, and the works of David Lachapelle, Osborne Macharia and Jan Saudek. The models, performers, actors, drags featured on the photos belong to Rio's militant anarcho-humanist microcosm and have heavily influenced the conception of characters and scenes. The other ingredients being the photographer's heavy use of theatrical aesthetics and glam-trash contrast. Pol Kurucz is the collective's Franco-Hungarian founder and photographer.
