Carolina Sjöstrand prays at the altar of avant-garde fashion shot by Ninja Hanna for Contributor #10. Carolina dares to go undercover, as she deigns to discover the truth. Facing her fears, she takes us to the far reaches of another world, where what was above is now below. Raging red-heads follow suit in this editorial that celebrates the artistry of excess. Stylist, Maria Barsoum, invite us to explore the duality of riches with poetic pieces that are poised to perfection. From leather/fur to silk/suede, the combinations of creative attire infuse us with a sense of unrest. From the lurid nature of vivid red to the purity of screaming white, deliciously dangerous fabrics unfurl. Each shot invites us to explore our sensual side while still maintaining a link to the ethereal. A daring array of fun and play. Bold beauty settles in as (Makeup Artist) Asa Karlsten invites passion to flow free. Carnal colored shadows find the light as blazing lips lead the pack. Set against a blue/grey backdrop, tempestuous tunnels unfold as to-die-for shades dare to take hold. Hairstylist, Joe Yves, captures the past with pin-up curls while exploring the future with a radically re-formed Bob. In a post-apocalyptic fantasy world there lives a sub-culture of sci-fi, boldly embracing the aesthetics of the extreme. Between now & forever, a torrid twinkle of high fashion pays homage to the fire of the female spirit.
