There’s a mildly dizzying physical sensation that accompanies a viewing of Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Fallen Angels. The fall is turned into a literal one by the downward views favoured by Guerin’s lens. But like any angel that’s fallen from grace there’s also a suggestion of greed or over-indulgence, of opulence and corruption – albeit a beautiful and alluring one. Marz Atashi’s styling leans towards rich, luxurious textures and dark colours. Nudity and hints of sapphic sensuality imply hedonistic tendencies contributed to the downfall of Guerin’s two angels.
These fallen angels don’t seem too distraught at having landed on the dark side, though, which makes one wonder – if bad girls have more fun, does that mean the fall was worth it?
