For the Southern Hemisphere, summer is around the corner. You can just about feel the sun’s rays licking through the widening cracks in spring’s shell, steeping November in a promise of hot days to come. But summer is so much more than just a notch up on the weather report. It’s orange sunsets, crashing waves, balmy nights and barefoot days; it’s a feeling in the air as real and as sticky as the melting ice-cream that runs down your hand.
In this shoot both the styling by Emma Wood and photography by Jason Ierace have a way of scooping up that summer feeling and trapping it in an image. A silhouette against an ocean sky; a high waisted vintage style swimsuit that’s more surfer chic than pinup girl; frills on a bikini bottom that flounce in the breeze as you run barefoot along a beach road.
If you’re across the world and only dreaming of summer, such imagery keeps those dreams sun-drenched and sweet; if summer is around your corner, this shoot will remind you just how close by it is.
