Fashion Photographer Turns Refugee Crisis Into Offensive High-End Fashion Shoot

“Hungarian fashion photographer Norbert Baksa has come under fire for a refugee-themed fashion photo shoot he conceptualized and shot at the Hungarian border. “Der Migrant,” which features models wearing headscarves and designer duds before a backdrop of barbed wire fences, was released on the photographer’s personal website and Twitter account last week to predictably less-than-stellar reviews.

According to the New York Times, within hours of uploading the images to the web, Baksa became the subject of a barrage of angry tweets and critical articles from across the globe.”
