Based almost exclusively on bright pops of color and a vibrant, quasi-cinematic effect rendered by the inspired choice of graphic storytelling, Anton Ismael’s intriguing photo shoot puts a new spin on exotic beauty. Envisioned here as a fundamental element that helps define a game of contrasts, the shoot features a strong emphasis on mirror duality and on the figurative floodlights as a main part of the imaginative concept.
What could rather be interpreted as a sequence of perfectly depicted fantasies, with a clear technical influence and less of the classic shaped reality we are so used to seeing by now, is the brilliant aftermath resulting from a bold vision that loves to defy normality. Arsy Medina (ineedbiggercloset.blogspot.com) was in charge of styling the photo shoot and she followed the same lively path in doing so: neon colors, graphic make-up, tinfoil-like accessories and futuristic accents, lots of them in fact.
The complementary wardrobe, faithful and very close to the graphical character marking the subtext of the shoot in shape, colors and prints, wears the signature of Patrick Owen and the Anonymous label.
