‘Hold Your Breath and Close Your Eyes’ by Douglas Friedman for Vogue Italia
Posted Mar 17, 2013
Beauty by Baptism – Taylor Foster, Simon Sherry Wood, Taylor Bagley & Lucy are reborn in Douglas Friedman’s ‘Hold Your Breath and Open Your Eyes’ for the March issue of Vogue Italia. Fashion and fantasy collide in a series of hydro-dynamic shots featuring exotic eyewear from high-end producer, Marchon. Floating in a kind of hyper-enhanced state of vivid tranquility, style is submerged in this underwater dreamworld. A place of transformation, the other-worldly elements are maximized, with slowed-down effects that heighten the illusion of suspended reality. A story told in gravity defying moments of pure magic, Friedman’s effortless steam of inspired etherealism provides an exquisite escape from our everyday existence.
