Maiden Lane: No holding back

Michael Donovan‘s photography is usually as raw, bold and blunt as it gets, more so when every one of his pictures seems to be carved out from a real-life fantasy that keeps you in a constant awe, striving to find out more, to see more. With a trio of models playing naughty and nice and a full creative team contributing to the puzzling story, Maiden Lane is everything you think you know, but then again, you really don’t.

Rough and intriguing, the set of images shot for Smug magazine seem to be the kind that carry a crazy story behind, much like a long lasting week-end during which everything could have happened. Endless nights, steamy scenes, humor, mystery and a whole lot of fun, seem to be main ingredients building up the priceless moments. A busy city as main setting and the recipe appears to be complete.

Models Shanina, Cora and Anastasia look as daring as they look beautiful with make-up by Jen Myles and Lizzy Ameson, and hair by Marcos Diaz and Dakota Heman. Featuring designs from American Apparel, Bally, Araks and Cheap Monday, view the complete editorial shot by Michael Donovan (www.michaeldonovanphotography.com) by simply clicking on the gallery above.
