You can’t help but notice her strong presence although the bare surroundings work hard in concealing her body beneath a layer of muted tones and harsh textures. Rising above from endless waters, her body a temple made out of broken pieces, she is a vision, a metaphor of the most beautiful kind. Dramatic, mystical, brimming with raw emotions, Mo Gaff‘s stunning editorial drags you into a timeless fantasy.
The portrait of ethereal beauty wouldn’t have felt complete without a few clear drops of water caressing the sun-kissed skin, allowing the wet-look hair and the plum lips to deepen the fascination by borrowing elements of a femme fatale look. With little else needed to perfect the ravishing awakening image, a shredded mantle and Julie Beekman’s flawless figure end up sealing the deal.
Featuring styling by Susi Bauer and make-up by Tina Hoffmann you can see more of this gorgeous editorial for MOGA Magazine at the gallery. Visit mogaff.com for more of Mohamed Gaff’s photography work.
