Love may be a drug, but it’s lust that’s truly, dangerously addictive. In Nicolas Guerin‘s latest shoot for Fiasco, it’s the power of a woman over a man that becomes a spell, rendering him incapable of thinking of anything but her.
Woman here is powerful and empowered, an enchantress using her wiles to take what she wants. But what of the point of view of he who has been enraptured?
For him, it’s about the satisfaction of giving in, of losing oneself even to something we know we shouldn’t. Especially to something we know we shouldn’t. To stand at the edge of the precipice and wonder at the abyss, not certain we’ll be able to pull ourselves back. That’s to be under the spell.
The styling by Julien Mazzoli and Sofia San Zy Prast incorporates crosses and holy beads to further drive home the notion of something forbidden, sinful.
