Riverdale's Cole Sprouse Sometimes Gets Backlash About His Photography For the Most Surprising Reason
Chatting with TeenVogue about his second job, Cole opened up about his love for the art, why he chose photography over directing and more.
“I became obsessed with the storytelling of photography and going on little adventures,” he shared, adding that “the majority of my photography in the past has been trespass photography. I know that sounds a little dubious, but oftentimes the best locations are locations you break into. [Laughs]”
Cole adds about trying to be all-inclusive in his art, “A lot of my fan base now is 18 to 23, and the older we get, the wider range of interesting work we come across in our life…I heavily moderate my account, and I see opposition from certain audiences when I post a model who’s a person of color.”
“Androgyny is unfortunately always something that ends up getting a lot of backlash,” Cole says. “I still have a large group of people that follow me that are not used to alternative forms of representation, and their opposition to those forms of representation, to me, displays just how necessary it is.”
“I think as long as I keep getting a kind of backlash on such degree to different kinds of representations, that just displays how much more it needs to happen and how much more I need to place precedence on it.”
