It’s hard to tell what exactly hits you first while taking a good look at Georgia Wiggs’ beautiful photography. It could be the tropical vibe, exotic and refreshing, veiling everything in mystery, the kind of atmospheric that leaves you wanting to know more, the whole story if possible, from beginning right until the very end. Or it could as easily be the ethereal, almost surreal beauty of models Jennifer Melendez and Lana Wang, playing upon softness and embracing the loftiness of the Fitzroy Gardens in Melbourne, to its very core.
But no story told by a sequence of artistic images would ever feel complete without an equally whimsical selection of clothing. Envisioned by Sekarsari Sadhati, a 2nd year designer at Whitehouse, the striking garments draping the bodies of Jennifer and Lana celebrate ethnicity by incorporating many now-familiar tribal prints in warm, earthy tones. Far away from the busy streets, they look even more extraordinary.
Enchanting, feminine but brimming with attitude, the direction embraced by Georgia Wiggs (www.georgiawiggs.com) feels like a gentle ray of sunshine, among a storm of dark concept. To witness the complete shoot, click on one of the thumbnails above and proceed through the gallery.
