This shoot is “a story of a horse and her master”, as photographer Mark Drew explains it. Model Daria is the horse; bound up in harnesses and saddles of the actual equine kind (not the usual fetish-come-fashion leather harness accessories). Even her hair, styled by Livio Angileri into braids that encircle her neck, is representative of her state of submissiveness.
By the end of Drew’s beautifully photographed black and white shoot the slave has become the master. The dominated girl overpowers and seduces her captor, gaining her freedom.
Between the styling and art direction by Elle Werlin, smokey eye makeup by Wendy Karcher, Angileri’s hair styling and Drew’s (markdrewstudio.com) photography, this makes for a take on the fetish fashion theme that’s filled with both narrative and striking imagery.
