Jeanette Mathisen ‘Pyroclastic’ by Desiree Mattsson for Vestal Magazine
Posted Oct 28, 2013
In a burst of neo-noir beauty Jeanette Mathisen erupts on the page in ‘Pyroclastic’ by Desiree Mattsson for Vestal Magazine. Armed & evocative Mathisen plays a modern day femme-fatale, wearing a unique set of sword & dagger style rings created by Helene Torp Holte. Capturing the essence of film noir Mattsson uses the dangerous elements of the jewelry design to evoke the spirit of mystery and allure. Bold imagery bursting with untapped energy, the fiery nature of the Pyroclastic elements come together to form a synthesis of sensuality and style. Each shot a masterpiece in/of itself, (makeup artist) Irina Jensen dares to tap into our darker side with a smoldering series of dramatic looks meant to leave us breathless. A poetic piece of Beauty Art. In one of the most exciting editorials of the season this visually stimulating story uses shadows, low-key lighting and unique camera angles to prove, that when done right, the purity of black & white can capture all the intensity of color (and then some).
