Limn the beauty: tempest of purple and gold

Colours speak louder when words fail to describe beauty to its full intensity: coated and layered with care instead of being spoken, typed or written, the pigment explosion of purple and gold paints a spectacular storm on the canvas that is Dana Taylor’s gorgeous face. And just like a tempest, Liz Olivier’s make-up starts off eerie and quiet, dark shades slowly giving way to a…

White-dusted, pristine beauty

A layered look of dreamy whites fading to dust, of graphic lines and artsy strokes colluding to paint beauty pristine, Billy Rood‘s “Achromic” editorial for Fifty8 Magazine is effortlessly-gorgeous in the way minimalism often is. Bearing a modern-to-mystical vibe about it, Liz Olivier’s make-up is pure otherworldly when it’s not the definition of art, super-cool when it’s not fun and playful, but above all it…

All kinds of naked, a different kind of nude (NSFW)

The artist undressing his subject, the subject dancing in the raw, the artist seeking to explore the essence hidden on the surface, the surface made of nothing but skin wrapped tight around a soul. Billy Rood‘s atypical way of denuding the female body is all art, photography to design, design to illustration, the contemporary touch acting like a gentle, protective veil against Emily Marinelli’s gorgeous…

Goddesses of lingerie: escape is not an option

Lingerie is best highlighted by a sexy attitude but whenever there’s a dream-like atmosphere involved, the scenario gains a certain softness that becomes practically irresistible. Infusing the shoot with its old-world charm, the inn serving as location feels like the perfect hiding place for the goddesses of lingerie. Photographer Billy Rood explored the depths of seductiveness and brought out its most delicate reflection.

Ethereality by Billy Rood: the clash of fantasy and reality

When asked to describe that place between fantasy and reality people tend to search for one word, that perfect one able to comprehend what is almost impossible to fully describe using sentences. But when words fail and silence tends to block the illusion, leave it to the most poetic visual expression to tag along and offer a glimpse of what lies beyond imagination. Ethereality, as…

VS by Billy Rood: a world of duality

“We all have at least two sides… In order to appreciate one you have to know the other. The more darkness you can gather up, the more light you can see too.” — David Lynch Duality is a much explored notion, and why shouldn’t it be: we’re all fascinated by the inevitability of opposing forces, be they ones that exist in the world around us…

It’s the men’s quiff that counts

It started out with a hint of the extreme, with overtones of an attitude that said “I play a six string” and the Devil may care. But like so many things, the return of the quiff to popularity has eventually seen it evolve into something more refined. Scrap that. Refined is totally the wrong word. The style of quiff may have changed but this is…

Reminiscing and never forgotten

I’m sure I wouldn’t be the first person to see this shoot, photographed by Roy Mccam and groomed by Melchor Dominguez, and to think of classic James Dean – what with the rockabilly hairstyle, leather jackets, and brooding expressions – a somewhat timeless archetype.

At the edge of the sea

The edge of the sea is where two worlds collide; one of those worlds is our own, the other that we can never fully be part of. Billy Rood‘s Edge Of The Sea is beauty against a crumbling backdrop, with Angelique Fortuna‘s styling a perfect combination of warrior-like pieces and soft femininity.
