Secret of the unknown models
There are many reasons that models are listed unknown, some are because of their contract, and others because of the country or family law and the religious issue also some because of the publisher, photographers or models error to not pay attention to it, and many of them are from old age before we had # Hashtag or tagging in social media. Some people who are in photo business they take advantage of this and as there is no one to claim the copyrights even they selling it in stock photos.
This day with digital photography and all the apps we have anyone can be a photographer or model and even if some big agencies want to contact these unknown models there is no way to find them yet unless we use face recognization system like what the government is using with the help of the tech industry,
Face recognization software
Also tech industry by gathering the location, fingerprints and facial data of the people from their cell phones making a huge database of almost anyone the world,
China by installing most face recognization system became one of the tops surveillant camera users and privacy or safety first it’s under question, but ordinary people they think they have nothing to hide and as they are majority this will give authorities to launch their projects and make a new policy to have more control over people.
Here is an example of the political productions without any names of actors or crew to protect the safety of them,
In the opposite side, there are well-known celebrities like Japanese recording artist, dancer, model, actress and entrepreneur Namie Amuro and she was called Madonna of Japan

EVER hear of Namie Amuro? Most people outside of Asia haven’t, but she’s been called Japan’s Madonna (the singer, not the religious figure). From [Wikipedia reference ]
Namie Amuro Japanese singer from AVAX record was one of the pioneers to put the barcode number tattoo to bring this message to people attention.
To become famous the recording company or agents and modeling agency they advertise the models with their name these days,
Safety of the models
But before many people just kept the information of the models secret, and still they do that in many places, some because of the safety of models and some because they didn’t want anyone to be able to contact and make a contract with them.
Some even had a contract with the models that saying until they clear all the bond they had models were not allowed to work for anyone.
There are some clubs that provide models for a photo shoot with the studio package and they have so many super beautiful models with just stage name or nickname, and nobody knows who are these models.
Many of them are on Pinterest, some flicker accounts, tumbler and many blogs and websites and most of these beautiful models maybe hiding their information because of governments, religion, family or marriage situation and even society problem.
Even in not so much religious countries many beautiful models are unknown.
What is the reaction of the people in your area to a modelling job?
As a model, producer, agent, agency, photographer, or the artist will you make the model name included in the art or photos or they are not important and is all because of your art
Maybe you are scared of society too or you doing it for their safety but I hope the world someday can reach to the level to not make taboos for human freedom and love to scare them to hide behind the mask of unknown.
