Meghan Will Artfully Evolve as She Moves & Transforms

She is a Phenom. A Powerful Sight. A Beautiful Bird. She’s a Woman in Flight. A Heroine On High. Her Passion Ignites. She Never Fears a Fall. Light is Her True Might. Don’t worry dear one she feeds upon the sun, a fantastical female she is artistry undone. Living and learning to weather the storm, a fighter of the sky, she is ethereally adorned. Her body is a temple primed to perform, this is evolution in the making as works long to be transformed. 

Jessica Stam ~ Lets Her Spirit Float Free Under the Sea

Jessica Stam dives into the deep blue in ‘Going Under’ by René & Radka for Vogue Portugal, June 2018. Drowning in the depths of despair, we witness Jessica delivered by the weight of water. This has nothing to do with what we consider the limitations of being underwater, rather, it is about the art of discovery. Floating ever deeper still she gives herself over to the aquatic energy of life’s spiritual side. 

Take Me to the Barre I Say & There I'll do a Grande Jeté

Take Me to the Barre I Say and There I’ll do a Grande Jeté, Arabesque and Assemblé, Pirouette and Plain Plié. Your Pointed Shoes Will Take You There, Spinning through the Tour en l’air. Dance Evokes this Pas de Deux as a Tale of One Told with an Attitude of Tutu. 

Talent binds you to beauty as Sergei Polunin takes us on a ride through the outskirts of his mind. I see this exquisite editorial as a picture of “Modern Art”. 

Ventriloquy Fairs Quite a Show Vittoria is One with Role

Vittoria Ceretti plays in powdered snow as she goes “On With the Show” by Luigi & Iango For Vogue Germany July 2018. Fantasy is on fertile ground as artistry erupts in semi-sonic surround. Making the transition from stiff mannequin to a woman of walking/taking wonder. I begin to imagine Vittoria as a rogue doll separated from her stringed connections. Caught in the stagecraft of ventriloquy, she fairs quite a show being one with the role. 

Art Is Eloquence In the Making, A Dance of the Sublime

Marie-Agnes Gillot & Michaela DePrince follow the light in ‘Magic Moves’ by Luigi & Iango For Vogue Germany, July 2018. Dance is a delicate movement, one that requires stamina, stimulation, sturdiness and stead-fast determination. Here we witness two women in the throws of such a compilation of courage and commitment. Artful in their approach ~ open to all possibilities. We feel in them the spirit to fly. 

Saskia de Brauw Reflects on Life "In Sea of Sand & Sin"

Saskia de Brauw finds herself falling in “A Sea of Sand & Sin” by Dario Catellani for Vogue Italia, May 2018. This is a tale of two. Images are reflected and shadows are seen in this sentimental journey that reads like a dream. Against solid shades patterns play in poetic ways. George Cortina commands our attention by summoning a captivating blend of colors and craft. Silk fabrics fall over her body with see-thru patterns that possess power. 

Txema Yeste Takes Us Inside ~ Far Reaches of the Mind

Julia Bergshoeff takes us inside the far reaches of the mind in this two-part series, “En Tierra Hostil” by Txema Yeste for Vogue Spain, June 2018. Outside the linear lines lives a place of utter excess. Art is an expression of this transient export. The psyche of the senses leads us to the center of the soul, where wisdom and perception collide. It is here that the sentient pleasures of life linger and the silent powers of the world unite. 

Marie-Agnès Break Ballet Tradition Rediscover "Danse"

Marie-Agnès Gillot breaks tradition in “Danse” by Koto Bolofo for Numéro Magazine #193. Redefining the concept of Ballet proper, Gillot’s body moves to it’s own beat. Ever moving ever flowing, the body beautiful bends but never breaks. Art evokes a sense of synergistic style. Fortune’s fluidity is found in the sanguine sounds of life’s rebound, leaving nature to sway on solid ground. 

Lily Stewart Bends, Twists, Shape & Shifts "Pantomime"

Lily Stewart bends, twists, shapes and shifts in ‘Pantomime’ by Amanda Charchian For Numéro #193, May 2018. Lensed thru the looking glass of wonder, we watch as this displays a door to another world. The majesty of movement the mimicry of might leaves us fighting to find the vibrancy of light. Samuel Francois leads the way. This exquisite editorial uses the fundamentals of high fashion to celebrate the synchronicity of modern style. 

Miss Fame is a Screen Queen Lights... Camera... Action

“I’m Ready for My Close-Up… Mr Demille,” a line made famous in the 1950 film, Sunset Boulevard. Exploring the 2018 Spring Collections, Miss Fame captures the nuance of noir, as she brings her ever elusive ways to the stage. Depicting a character from eras gone by. This reflects a time when stars were truly super and Fame was something far more substantial than a YouTube video. 

Amandine Renard... Enters Earth's Magnetic Force Field

Amandine Renard enters Earth’s Magnetic Field in “Champ Magnétique” by Txema Yeste for Numéro #198, April 2018. Sand and sky collide as the majesty of nature is applied. A powerful piece that plays to the idea of force fields. Fantasy flies above the ground as beauty is bathed in desert surround. As all things end they begin again. Art evolves through the tragedy of tyranny and the antipathy of truth. 

Karen Elson Asks That We Ride Inside Her Fantasy Mind

Karen Elson seeks to find the jagged mind to take her back in hallowed time by Alasdair McLellan for Self Service Magazine, S/S 2018. She’s set free on the streets of New York City. This story plays with the idea of innocence versus excess. Pictures present a sense of symbiosis. A hit of 60’s nostalgia a dash of 40’s flare and a dose of 70’s decadence is sure to get you there.
