The mood is a little dark, the contrasts strong. Against the industrial-feeling backdrop of dirty bricks and concrete, model Melody looks a little like a fairytale Queen that’s fallen from her mighty kingdom. She’s still decked out in her fineries – her furs and lace dresses and beaded headpiece – but her surroundings don’t match up to her attire, or her poise. The beautiful black and white photography by Daniel Luxford creates contrasts with light and shadows just as the styling by Vanessa Lane creates contrasts with the setting.
Luxford also plays with movement and exposure to create a ghostly effect across some of the images. For the full shoot of Melody by Daniel Luxford (danielluxford.com), click on the thumbnails above.
