Hannah and the ivy

There’s something pure about it all. Her eyes glisten. She is surrounded by forest. It’s nature in its raw state. Not the nature of an Eden, it’s too dark for that, but nature untouched by man. She’s not off the beaten track in so much as she is nowhere near one at all. She is surrounded by wilderness as nature intended. And for much of the photo shoot Hannah May is as nature intended. As naked and untouched as the leaves which surround her; a nymph, her privacy intruded upon. Or perhaps she’s calling us in, the youthful antithesis to a harpy.

David Paul Larson’s framing tells as much of the story as Hannah May’s makeup-less skin: she’s not a model placed in front of a backdrop, she’s part of the forest. In one shot Hannah May’s fringed face takes up just a corner of the scene, the rest of our view overrun by rambles of ivy. She’s at home in that ivy; a dryad at one with the forest.

He was 5 when his teacher wrote on his report card “Daniel can’t sit still.” Taking it as a compliment, he’s been on the go ever since. Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
