Naked, but sheathed in mystery

Just lying bare, Johanna is a mystery. A beautiful naked form with a frantic mane of hair and pale lips, her writhing poses inviting us to wonder what possessive spirit moves inside her. When made up – lips now deep red, body sheathed in the luxurious lace of a Lucian Matis dress, checking herself in the mirror of a luxury hotel bathroom – the mystery…

Her soul troubled, her eyes poisoned (NSFW)

It might have something to do with the sinister sounds echoing a mix between a church’s bell ring and an eerie wind chime strain, or the thought of a troubled girl walking the big city at night in search of her poison, but there’s definitely an unsettling impression accompanying every second of Chad Muller’s short film for Bambi Magazine.

A seaside farewell

This is one of the last beach shoots Chad Muller intends to do. “I’ve been shooting fashion outdoors and on beaches for decades,” he explains. Back then, fashion was mostly shot in studios, and beach shoots involved either nudes or bikinis. “I had the idea to shoot fashion where people would normally shoot nudes or bathing suits,” says Muller. But as others have caught up…
