Cooper Thompson can usually be seen sporting a seraphim’s nest of flaxen spiral curls. With those he looks not only angelic but classical, as if sculptured by the hand of some ancient artist, or at least chosen by one as their muse. With straight, long hair, Thompson moves even further into the hazy terrain of the androgynous. In this shoot of Thompson, Lydia-Jane Saunders‘ styling keeps things fairly gender-neutral in it’s ethereal white colour palette and breezily tailored cuts.
Lara Milenko‘s photos play with movement and flow, occasionally cutting to black and white; but she always keeps sight of Thompson’s strongest features and presents something that’s less a photo shoot than a beautiful portrait.
With hair and makeup by Casey Gore, you can view all of the shoot – contrarily titled BLACK and starring Cooper Thompson – at the gallery.
