We Are Unlike You is a Modeling Agency that Looks for Characters, Not Models

When the term model is thrown around, there’s a fairly typical image that probably comes to mind for most people. In the male department, six-pack abs or a clean-cut look might fit the bill. And the female department more often than not involves the descriptors tall and slender.

Modeling agency We Are Unlike You isn’t interested in any of that. Like the UGLY MODELS agency we shared with you a little over a year ago, they are more interested in representing unique “characters.”

The agency is based out of Berlin, and according to the description on their website, they “don’t just offer tremendous looking individuals, but real characters who don’t just look the part, they feel and act it too. Because it’s simply who they are.”

Their roster of models is selected from among “professional burlesque performers, drag-acts, dancers, musicians, cabaret artists, and stand up comedians” whose style is 100% unique.

The hope is that the models themselves will act as inspiration for the photographers who may want to put them in front of the camera: “We want to inspire photographers, creatives, casting and booking agents to create images, develop stories and ideas that will feel as passionate, quirky and authentic as our people.”
