In a way, Luca Meneghel’s (lucameneghel.com) Shooting Grunge is a kind of beauty shoot. It’s not a beauty shoot of the conventional kind, with glossy close-ups of brightly coloured lipstick, but it does play with focal points to sharpen our attention on model Maryia Luncevich’s grungy eye makeup and pallid lips. The shoot also blurs the edges of grunge revival and neo-Gothic styling with its clothing palette of all black and its mission to convey movement and attitude over outfits and poses.
Though kept somewhat unfocussed and peripheral, Norma Nardi’s all-black styling works for the concept. Pamela Barbera created the hazy-eyed beauty look for the shoot, which you can view in full at the gallery above.
