Tim Barber Gets This Model To Lick a Peony for New Cynthia Rowley Campaign

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

The very social, very arty lives of Cynthia Rowley and her art-dealer husband Bill Powers have been well documented, so it comes as no surprise that Rowley tapped a fine art photographer for her latest campaign. Art-scene staple Tim Barberhe of Tiny Vices fame—shot the spring ad and somehow convinced this model to lick what appears to be a peony (though some at Racked HQ speculated that the flower in question might be a ranunculus). As it's all in the name of art, however, we heartily approve.
