Photographer Simon Ackerman creates black and white portraits of fashion and form with these six fundamental depictions of beauty, sensuality, magnificence and compassion. Each image focuses on the natural glow and radiance that is given forth by model Shelby Benson.
Make-up, done by Jen Evans, is simple and refined – focusing on the organic outlines and feminine forms of Benson’s facial features: ample and sensuous lips compliment Benson’s dark and powerful eyes. Small touches of ring accessories add to the shoot’s femininity and delicacy. Ackerman uses his fashion shoots to focus on the detail and emotion of his subject matter, bringing out the not only the natural beauty that resides within, but also creating a platform for simple loveliness that has true and honest representation.
