An accentuating glow creates the scene for this picturesque portrayal of gothic noir, ripe with the scent of a goddessen vision and poised with the beauty of porcelain skin and blood red lips, photographer Atif AbuSamra inspires a photography shoot with the new notions of gothic fashion.
Styling in the shoot (done by Ginno Aldecente) is textured and elaborate – with fairytale-like headdresses adorning model Emma Falkenstrom’s golden hair. There are the continued notions of something mythical and enigmatically beautiful within the shoot – make-up, done by Melanie Flores, focuses on those classically beautiful features of the female face – deep and dark lips, cheeks bones leading down to the mouth, punching and almost transparent blue eyes.
AbuSamra creates striking portraits with each new piece of apparel, breathing in life and creating a story with the use of light and dark, feature and focus. The entire shoot comes together in magical and magnificent formation, allowing the mind to create and believe in a story untold.
