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.

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.
