With a sincere essence of grain and emotion this natural photography shoot by Oli Sansom brings forward the moodiness and grit that can reside within fashion. The naturalism behind this fashion shoot reflects the notions of Australian label Sosume, which aggregates organic sustainable materials that are locally produced to use for fashionable wear.
Sansom makes use of low-key lighting and natural surroundings to create a shoot that reflects the subtlety of movement, the delicacy behind female pose and a certain ethereal ambiance that draws your eye into each portrait.
This entire photography shoot is derived from the designs of old film and the representation of an emotion and moodiness captured within a frozen time, blending the sentiment of the model, Danielle Hayes, with the emotion that each photograph brings forth; gritty, grainy and full of mystery.
The ideals of this naturalism continue through every aspect of the shoot: hair is left just as the model wears it and make-up (done by Laura Claire) does not work to hide flaws or accentuate positive features. You are given a raw perspective on each element within each shoot, yet again bringing you back to its root elements. Sosume draws inspiration from all forms of design; be it the most complex man-made architectural structures to the most basic natural forms, creating looks that are simple and flattering, that work with the human form. Tones within the shoot reflect the colours of garments; black, white and grey.
