A heartbreaking story in visual form: Grey Lake

Chances are you won’t stumble upon many editorials that people can easily relate to, editorials that aren’t afraid to disclose the everyday struggles rather than endlessly pointing towards the extraordinary. While it’s true that we all love to escape reality from time to time, only to chase the luxurious fantasies showcased in magazines, it’s the familiar grounds that resonate in the end. Much like An Le’s beautifully captured “Grey Lake” story talking about abandoned hopes, as photographed for Tush Magazine’s latest issue.

If you feel An Le’s photo shoot is somehow special and quite unusual, you’re probably right, as the photographer’s inspiration for it was triggered by an article about a 21-year-old girl who committed suicide after 200 job rejections. A statement, a reflection of the issue of today’s unemployment of young recent-graduates, a tale of desperation and struggles, the shoot uses fashion as a greater expression.

The editorial starrs Sojourner Morrell sporting Phuong My’s superb styling work that features garments designed by Prabal Gurung, Blumarine, Prada and Alberta Feretti.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
