Braden Summers for Target x Accompany

Target recently announced its latest collaboration with ethically-sourced online marketplace, Accompany, to create winning ethically produced items for an approachable price.

Braden Summers was lucky enough to get to travel to 6 different countries on 5 different continents to create imagery that was used for the collaboration of the two brands.

The images feature the many faces of the artisans that partner with the Accompany brand to create all the products for this extensive collection.

Braden Summers’ Personal Project Aims to Show Equality in Love

Braden Summers has been working on an on-going personal project titled “All Love is Equal” that aims to alter or change public perceptions of LGBTQ relationships.

Braden takes a “fairy tale” approach in his images that are predominate in heteronormative images. His goal in doing so is to show the world that the happily ever after dialogue can also exist in LGBTQ relationships.

In an article on Design Indaba, Braden explains his motives:

“By excluding these types of images of beauty for the LGBTQ community we are being told that we are not as beautiful, our romance doesn’t deserve this type of iconic treatment in the media and I thought that it was time for that to change.”

Check back here for more images in the series.
