When asked to describe that place between fantasy and reality people tend to search for one word, that perfect one able to comprehend what is almost impossible to fully describe using sentences. But when words fail and silence tends to block the illusion, leave it to the most poetic visual expression to tag along and offer a glimpse of what lies beyond imagination. Ethereality, as captured by photographer Billy Rood, feels like an open door leading towards a universe where reality and fantasy clash together.

The results, extraordinary, light and peaceful carry Rood’s signature sophistication, having models Nikayla and Alyssa emphasize the concept that serves as foundation for this particular type of modern, clean yet dramatic imagery. Unpredictable, with just a touch of digital flavour, the sequence of photographs strike through a strong visual pattern, so apart from all the rest that feels almost surreal.

Shaped by all things beautiful and feminine, Nicoleta Parascan’s first steps towards entering the captivating world of fashion were taken somewhere around the young age of six, when she received her very own first fashion magazine. Discovering an entirely new universe, filled with pretty ladies and beautiful clothes, there was not much able to ever beat or compete with the fantasy land that was suddenly opening up. Surrounded by books, constantly thinking about the next best outfit, in search of a signature style and defined by a nostalgic calling towards the past, Nicoleta believes in taking chances, in destiny and in building her own path in life. When she’s not writing, you can easily find her playing with her cat, reading an old book, watching movies, exploring the city or blogging her own daily adventures.
