In Greek mythology The Three Graces each personified one of charm, grace, or beauty; in John Wright’s photoshoot of the same name, each one of the models embodies all three.
It’s a close reference to the Graces as they’ve been depicted in artworks over time. Everything about Alex Reid’s styling nods to the classical, yet is drawn from the modern – and the misty forest backdrop could have been created by a painter’s brush.
The most literal translation of all is a shot of all three models in a pose that closely mirrors Antonio Canova’s neoclassical sculpture: the models lean in closely, their arms wrapped around eachother in an almost erotic embrace.
With lingerie by Damaris, La Perla and Myla, the pieces featured in Wright’s shoot are worthy of the mythological daughters of Zeus.
