Everything LA-based artist vōx crafts is imbued with spellbindingly ethereal and divine transcendence. Having recently released her latest EP This Body she shares a striking photo series with us fully showcasing the strong, intrinsic aesthetic to her artistry.
A corporeal, spiritual and visceral body of work, This Body unfurls gracefully and gently with sparse electronica and intricate, sonorous percussion that augments the power of vōx’s celestial and entrancing vocals. These tracks purvey a poignant vulnerability, both in the impactful and emotive soundscapes that glide through This Body as well as in vōx’s considered lyricism.
On ‘Too Much, Give Up’ vōx emphatically intones “am I growing up or growing deeper into myself”, a line that captures something of the deeply personal exploration at the core of the EP. This Body sees vōx delve into her identity and bodily essence, reclaiming repressed parts of herself, reconnecting with the sacred power in vulnerability, and embracing freedom in love; all delivered with a delicate, raw openness, and expressed with empowering and inviting solace. As vōx says of the EP, “This Body is for anyone who’s felt the disconnect of spirit and mind and body; for anyone who’s been told their body needs to be a certain thing or do a certain thing. They’re vulnerable and empowering songs.”

These are a collection of polaroids by Grant Spanier from a shoot we did together in August. Grant and I are both from MN originally, and he’s one of my favorite people to work with. Not only is he incredibly talented but he’s also so fucking Minnesota nice! This was our third time working together. We always flow so well during shoots. I did the styling and makeup myself to cut down on crew for a safer shoot.
This fantastic suit is by Jeremy Willard.
Last December, I met with amazing multi-disciplinary artist Yeu Q Nguyen to talk about this crazy idea I had to cast my face and make a headpiece from the moulds. The casting itself took about 6 hours of sitting as still as possible, and then afterward Yeu made this crown of faces out of resin affixed to a headband.
The shoot was a family affair. This is Grant’s sister Madeline capturing me on VHS!
This look is Mlaed with Rombaut boots. Truly a match made in heaven, as they’re both brands who focus on sustainability. As a vegan, this is something super important to me with the fashion I’m supporting.
I love the unpredictable magic of polaroid film. You never know what you’re going to get.
As soon as the sun set, the park got pretty weird. We heard coyotes howling to each other in the night, and we saw big tarantulas crawling along the trails.
