White has many connotations, but above all we think of it as being pure; untarnished. It’s an innocent bride, a just bloomed lily, a freshly painted room.
Joshua Alexandre Haines and team created this shoot for Bambi issue 9 inspired by the idea that feelings are pure. “The images exude an etherial quality which conveys the sense of nothing being there save for these pure feelings,” Haines explains. “Feeling such as lust, vulnerability, control, and longing.” Such a concept is hard to convey, visually; which is why the colour of white makes such perfect sense.
Beautifully styled by Theresa Demaria with soft shapes and textures – from white lace and ethereal white feathers to puffs of tulle – the only thing contrasting the purity of the whites are the circles of black eyeshadow by Kristina Marie. But the makeup has been applied with care, adding depth to the looks without compromising the purity of the outfits.
