Just a short way off on the horizon, like a little boat sailing into view, is the fourteenth issue of Bambi Magazine. And while we wait to see what photographic gems the new issue will bring, here’s one you might have missed from issue XIII: Marsida by Pino Leone.
This is one of those shoots that doesn’t try and draw you through with a narrative. Like much of Pino’s work it’s about sensuality, heat, the creation of a mood. Marsida has legs as lithe as a gazelle’s and four times as long, with the doe eyes to match; so it’s no wonder Leone made her assets the main focus of the shoot. In Simona Sandedele’s eclectic styling of lingerie and boots, tribal-inspired jewellery, horns and furry mukluks, Marsida is both a resident of this rocky wilderness and a ruler over it, getting wilder and fiercer as the shoot goes on.
When Marsida isn’t posing like a Goddess amoung the rocks, Leone’s blurred images create the effect of movement, like a chase through the secluded grassy plains.
Sun-drenched and beautiful in black and white, you can see the whole shoot at the gallery or by heading to bambimagazine.com.
