There is one word that seems to bear to mind when first glancing Rebecca Pead in this photo shoot: dark. But darkness in how many forms? Mysterious, shady, iniquitous, clandestine, dusky, haunted, doleful. From the notions of sinfulness and dark intent to hidden thoughts and an enigmatic nature Peter Coulson manages to capture a mood and thought that appeals to the darker side of life.

Rebecca Pead has a seductress’s face, with absorbing accents across the eyes and brows, drawing one into the ambiguous look of both innocence and provocation. Coulson manages to enhance these features through the use of light and dark; contrasting the shades against one another as well as hiding them within each other allows for each feature to stand on its own, giving it accent and highlights beyond that if it were drowned in colour.

Pead announces a certain authority in each photo, with each portrait framing not only her dark and light qualities but also the temperament she is feeling within each. From vaguely aware, to naively sensitive and knowingly fierce, she strikes a mood within each frame. With Coulson’s flair and aptitude he succeeds in capturing a picture with a 1000 words.

After completing a Bacherlors Degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics the world of freelance writing became the first choice in occupation, with no regrets and having never looked back. With a zest for anything with colour, vibrance and essence she found herself diving further into the world of fashion and design; from thifting vintage wedding dresses to pouring through new and modern jewelry pieces. This self anointed bohemian indentity believes in all the partisan revolutionary ideals of love, beauty and freedom, and when she isn’t writing or editing you can find her at the kitchens helm creating her latest milkshake masterpiece.
