Paris. All you have to do is whisper its name, gently, unhurriedly, as to not disturb its otherworldly corridors of time, and all of a sudden you’re transported to a place so sublime that makes breathing easily a nearly impossible task. Either you wandered its cobbled streets countless times, or you still dream about that one defining moment when the city of lights will simply take your breath away, you can’t help but feel that its splendor stands no resemblance. Because Paris is a dream, a lurid fantasy, a little piece of heaven.
Even more dramatic and enigmatic when photographed in black and white, Paris seems to have put on a real spectacle of dark skies, impending clouds and magic lights to exclusively be captured by Michael David Adams‘ lenses.
Embodying the Parisian chic ever so effortlessly, Hana fills the old streets with her buoyant presence, styled by Don West in garments so sharp, yet so sophisticated they ought to belong right then and there.
Striking cat eyes by Mary Irwin, and loose chignons by Dorian Shober complement the flawless portrait of natural elegance. You can indulge in the full editorial by Michael David Adams (facebook.com/michaeldavidadamsphotographer) at the gallery.
