L’Ange Noir: the art of being bare

Nudity in photography, all the more in fashion imagery, can easily come across as unpolished, inelegant or simply unaesthetic. At the same time when there’s more of a challenge in achieving a state of art, the results tend to become elaborate in all of their beautiful simplicity. To better lay emphasis on his idea of artistry, photographer Gabor Marton chose the clearness of black and white and the antagonistic approach of a black angel, both fearless and fragile, compelling and soft.

Melinda Tuu mirrored the ange noir, effortlessly and celestially, with the ease of someone who was always mean to do it, by simply playing upon her own innocence and letting that reflect upon every single one of her captivating shots. Styled with a messy do, barely there make-up and an ethereal black gown signed by Ida Skeppar, the model turned angel for a day seemed borrowed from another era, another universe even.

So, there is art in nudity, beauty in simplicity and a sight of mystery in black and white. Gabor Marton (www.martonandmatisz.com), the man behind the lens, assisted by Nora Matisz found the perfect balance along the way and it shows.

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.
