The mystifying presence of a world unknown

Have you ever felt yourself lost in a dream, lost in a thought that is so deep within your imagination that you may well be living that very experience? You enable your mind to become completely taken away and your imaginary world becomes your reality, it becomes the real fantasy that surrounds your eyes, that surrounds your senses and surrounds your every being.

Photographer Norman Murray manages to create this type of an experience through this ethereal and mystifying photoshoot. Through the use of movement and water he manages to draw the viewer into the collection and succumb to the mystery that it exudes; “succumbed in its embrace,” indicates towards the sheer influence that such a soft and delicate fashion shoot can have on the mind and imagination.

Hair and make-up in this shoot, done by Amelia Espley, bring this enigmatic creature to life. Covered by the blanket of mist and water the cycle of water does envelope and engulf all. The use of the contrasting natural nautical make-up and the elaborate theatrical make-up allows you to dive deeper into the story and motions of this shoot, moving from one substance to another, one roll to another, and becoming completely lost in everything else in between. Like a long last lover, kissing a familiar enigma.
