Milk Underground

A Touch of Red: Leila Spilman By Anthony Cabaero

November 7, 2013

Over the course of five days, five Milk Underground photographers worked with model Leila Spilman to shoot five exclusive editorial stories. Each photographer on our roster was chosen for their distinct look and style, and built their own teams of wardrobe stylists, hair and make-up artists and photo assistants.

Since 2011, Milk Made and Milk Gallery have been cultivating and growing a laundry list of some of the most talented underground photographers of our generation. They’ve been hand selected by the team at Milk, as well as a changing panel of outside curators and judges. The list of Milk Underground photographers has grown so vast that it reaches out of the US and into countries like Paris and Brazil. For this reason alone, we wanted to display not one but five different photographers to give just a taste of the talent found in our ranks.

Day 1: Anthony Cabaero

Anthony Cabaero has become a regular photographer for Milk Made this last year. He’s shot rappers Gilbere Forte and Maceo Paisley for us, as well as the 2014 Spring/Summer collection for design house RHUDE by Rhuigi Villasenor, who worked as the stylist for Cabaero’s shoot with Leila Spilman. This mostly black and white fashion editorial is a perfect way to introduce you all to Leila.
