A beauty amoung curiosities

In an unspecified place filled with heavy wood carved furniture, fine art paintings, fierce taxidermy creatures and various other antiquated curiosities, model Jessica Lima is at once out of place and yet a similar object of admiration. There’s a little touch of rawness to Advan Matthew‘s brightly lit portraits that defies the ornateness of the setting, but it’s a style that works perfectly well with…

All that glitters is not gold…

…although it could be something far better: Alexa and Anastasia, the retro beauties of the 21st century. The sparkling glitter that twinkles throughout this shoot is the creation and the application of a fictional story; a retro princess fantasy of glitter and light. Photographer Advan Matthew captures these girls both separately and together, an effective means of shedding light and emphasis onto the beautifully executed…

Playing mind tricks

Without wanting to get too metaphorical about it, you might say that a pair of glasses represents the lens through which we see (and interpret) the world. It’s hard not to image that was on Advan Matthews’ mind in creating this latest shoot – titled Mind Tricks – in which studs, pearls, spikes and flowers spread their way across glasses and visors. Styled by Bonniedegio…

Jazz Age styling that’s the cat’s meow

When something is “the cat’s meow” it’s not only spectacular, it’s likely to be referencing the 1920s. So synonymous with the decade is the oddly-coined superlative that, even now, a simple title like “Cat’s Meow” says it all. And so does the title for Advan Matthew’s shoot for Farrago Magazine which feels authentically of-the-era down to the finger waves (styled by Olivia Worotitjan) and carefree…
