Photography and fashion are an indelible combination; they have the ability to come together and produce an esoteric combination of reactions, colouring, timeless beauty and inspired fashionable creations. In the light of this ethereal and mystical shoot one manages to understand the full impact that fashion and accessories can have on our ability to be transformed and inspired by the world of cloth, detailing and metal.
Photographer and art director Charley Greenfield creates a photography shoot that is full of the influence of the goddess like notions of the ancient Greek deity Artemis. With the power of the huntress within her she represents the values of a mighty and wild woman, in her home surrounding of nature and the unrefined arena of a lost forest. She is the goddess of the hunt, of the strength and power that lies within female ability and presence.
Make-up, done by Elle Howard, falls in line with this powerful appearance – penetratingly dark lips and intense eyes outline the fierceness within the face. While the white glowing lace and cloth surrounding her creates the virginal softness that inherently resides within each woman. Kirsten Morisson, fashion stylist, uses black and white apparel to create contrasting inner ideals of this ethereal goddess: the dark huntress and the soft maiden, both looking to serve and protect. Impactful jewelry and headdresses complete each image in a fashion shoot that is full of influence and meaning.
