Eclectic styling in ancient surrounds

Set in the textured and breathtaking scene of Obidos Portugal, layered against a backdrop of colour, detail, pattern and grain, Marcin Kempski brings to life a modern fashion shoot in an antiquated space, creating contrast and variation through form and context.

Stylist, Magdalena SoszyÅska, focuses on bright colours that are rich in texture, brought to life through mixing and layering them over themselves. SoszyAska creates a contemporary sense of style, without conforming to any particular parameter of style or dress, rather she makes use of key pieces and combines them together to create an overall portrait of difference and strong colour. Each look has at least one statement piece – if not more – whether it be a bold red jacket, a bejewelled headband or a gold sequinned blouse.

Hair and make-up, done by Aneta Kostrzewa, also creates emphases with this statement approach by opting for a distinctive hairstyle with jagged edges and splashes of purple colouring. Hairstyles vary throughout but not one is lost in the background, rather the hair is used to create further layers and attention within each portrait.  The facial features of the model and the make-up used is bold and golden, with a shimmer and bronze glow covering the skin and detailing around the cheekbones, lips ad seductive eyes.

Karolina Tomaszewicz does the production on the shoot to create complete portraits with a life and richness to them, bought together in the magnificent scene of Obidos Tomaszewicz and Kempski manifest a delicate photography shoot with sharp edges and vivid colours.
