A black and white portrait of the delicateness of young beauty isn’t just pretty to look at (though, it is that), it’s also timeless – a sort of immortalisation of the subject as they are right in this moment. For that reason, these portraits are best when left close to natural: minimal makeup and minimal editing, raw in emotion and not aiming to portray some over-glamourised perfection that actually serves to make the real thing less perfect.
Shooting gorgeous model Ena, Luca Meneghel captures the essence of her natural and beautiful self. Hair and makeup artist Sabine Gutwenger plays down both aspects, and Daisy Welponer’s styling is similarly minimal, focusing on bare skin and soft, tactile fabrics.
