Alesya Kaf in “Hello Future” by Pedro Beraldo for Vogue China December 2019

Alesya Kaf steps into the light in “Hello Future” by Pedro Beraldo for Vogue China, December 2019. Art consumes us as we make our way into the great unknown. This story settles in that sweet spot. Daniel Rull steps into a strong space, as she attempts to handle the styling, makeup and hair in one fell swoop. Somewhat uncommon to see one person taking on all three of these powerful positions. That is exciting. 

Frances Coombe in ‘Owner of Darkness’ by Yuji Watanabe for Harper’s Bazaar Kazakhstan December 2019

Frances Coombe in ‘Owner of Darkness’ shot by Yuji Watanabe for Harper’s Bazaar Kazakhstan, December 2019. Humanity can’t hide as the arc of light & dark Poetically collide. Life is a constant battle between the elements of existence. Light and dark are merely forces that exist because the other is present. We must understand that one can’t be without the other’s reality.

Helen Mirren in ‘Annual Icon’ by Maarten de Boer for Flaunt Magazine

Helen Mirren poses as the first Annual Icon for Flaunt Magazine, shot by Maarten de Boer. I start my write-up by declaring my utter fascination with this cunning creature. She is utterly exquisite. Hers is a face that transcends the senses. My eyes travel over the valleys of her skin as I am mesmerized by the truth of her beauty. It’s as if the visual connection I’ve made with her being is allowed to enter my mind space… reaching to meet it’s rightful destination. 

Deirdre Fírinne & Manuela Sanchez by Mario Sorrenti for Document Journal Issue #15

Deirdre Fírinne stares into the eyes of this majestic creature and there you can see their spirits unite. Equal parts beauty and grace so is the Snowy Owl. In one of the most tender captures of the season we see Humanity Expand as we witness this elegant creature out of it’s native land. Perched on her arms, his talons made to tear into the hardest of bark, he sits lightly on her skin as if just to be.

Artfully embraced, each image is alive with pride and power. I feel inspired to just view. 

Paper Magazine

Pete Davidson in ‘Break the Internet‘ by Tommy Dorfman for Paper Magazine. This strange editorial focuses on what Dorfman Refers to as Depressed Ken. Placid and somewhat displaced, the story reads like a mono-syllabic spoof. The landscape of lunacy laid out in human form. Art embraces life and… well you get it. He uses the futile nature of things to both connect and detach. This composition can be a compelling construct, when artfully engaged.

Josefine Lynderup Delivers ‘A Love Letter to Copenhagen’ Greg Kadel for Dansk Magazine Issue #42

THE ARCHITECT OF THE ANCIENTS KNEW WHAT THEY WERE BUILDING. The physicality of this piece is a poetic tribute to the female form. Every curve creates a chasm every straight line a lesson of linear intent. Padding migrates as curves turn to daringly, mangled angles. This fantasy tale takes us to another world, where we merge forces outside the earthly plane. Playful in it’s intention, the artful figure is a revelation of the supernatural. 

Krow Kian by Elizaveta Porodina for Numéro Homme Netherlands 01

Krow Kian shares what it means to be authentic by Elizaveta Porodina for Numéro Netherlands 01. Some may think this not an appropriate venue to focus on Krow Kian’s incredible journey of discovery. Too bad. I see this story as a stop at the center of a brave voyage. This Fearsome Transgender Model shared his triumphant journey, as part of a documentary. ‘Krow’s TRANSformation follows a model’s transition from woman to man.
