If someone was to notice her, tiptoeing through shadows, teasing the gentle waves of the ocean, breathing life into miles and miles of golden beaches, it still wouldn’t be convinced she is all real and not just another beautiful chimera. Something about the way she looked, radiant like the sun one moment, enigmatic like a dark moon the next, was enough to keep others guessing.
A little melancholy lifted by solitude, the infinite beauty of Normandy, and Sebastian Cviq‘s signature black and white tones are ones to turn this photo shoot into a promise of sublimity.
More of that contagious gentleness spelling out every one of Valeriya Karaman’s steps is being carried through the minimal monochromatic clothes, through ethereal dresses made to flow easily into the breeze while revealing infinite plunges, or thigh high splits. As if to further emphasize Valeriya’s otherworldly nature, a series of avant-garde accessories are chosen to seal her story.
Make-up by Dariia Day and hair by Mike Desir finish off detailing the gorgeous portraits that you can check in full, at the gallery.
