This bearded lady is more beautiful than you might expect

Beauty is often misunderstood, lost in translation or completely isolated out of fear of a spell being broken, of a familiar truth being suddenly dissolved. But beauty has its roots deeply implanted in the unconventional, feeding upon the unexpected, encouraging oddity, embracing the eccentricity. Born out of a fairytale but inspired by the regal figures seen in paintings, sprinkled with magical elements while reimagining the…

Drawn from the inspiration of the “everything” woman, photographer and artistic director Katriena Emmanuel creates a bold and powerful swimsuit fashion shoot. This shoot has the motions of a story with a beginning and an ending; starting with a woman emerging from the ocean: creating the idea that she belongs to the watery world below.

We Little Girls Love to Play in the Sun

There is a particular vivacity that is bought into an environment with the presence of flowers. Floral print, floral details, flowery colours, floral accessories – all of these things have come to dwell quite heavily in the world of fashion – and for sufficient reason; they are simply beautiful. Flowery design adds the brightness of life to the inanimate objects of clothing, as seen in…

A Tim Burton-inspired cinematic world

I once read an interview with Tim Burton in which he said that, before becoming a film director, he barely spoke. His film Edward Scissorhands was a direct reflection of that - centred around a character who has lots of feelings to express but no way to express them. Just as Scissorhands ends up using his razor sharp appendages to create soft and beautiful shapes, Burton uses dark and twisted visuals to tell stories that are often about broken or misunderstood beings. For Burton, every monster has its own point of view. We just need to be able to see it. Inspired by Burton - and also in part from another great film auteur, Alfred Hitchcock - photographer Katriena Emmanuel brings us this series of images.
