The black widow spider gets her name from her (occasional) propensity to eat her male partner after mating. We expect that the black widow in Dennis Veldman‘s garden, however, is so named less for her post-lovemaking etiquette and more for her short black hairstyle and propensity to capture a male’s attention by doing her gardening work in slinky black gowns, heels, and bikinis. ‘There’s a Black Widow in the Garden’ was styled by Lisa Schuil with makeup by Charlotte Mailhe.
We’re looking forward to seeing more of Dennis Veldman’s work. Click on the image above for the whole gallery of images.
