Lili Ko­biel­ski was one of the 18 artists fea­tured in the ex­hi­bi­tion The Way Live Now, by the New York-based pub­lisher and gallery, Aper­ture. Lili’s doc­u­men­ta­tion of the pri­macy of men­tal ill­ness within Chicago's Cook County Jail has been revered and since been fea­tured in Dazed fash­ion and CNN style for her can­did ap­proach to pho­tog­ra­phy. Lili cre­ated an ex­clu­sive series of thought­ful im­ages for EW, dis­play­ing fash­ion in the mun­dane of the ev­ery day. From ferry rides in Long Is­land to New York sum­mers, she chal­lenges the norms of what we de em‘ beau­ti­ful’ to­day. There is beauty ev­ery­where, we just need to look closer.
