The red enigma that lies beneath the surface

There’s no easy dive one can take when shooting underwater, but as struggle turns into magic and a sweeping sense of serenity takes over, what lies beneath the surface suddenly becomes worthy of strange fascination. Adding up to his underwater fantasy universe, photographer Michael David Adams captures the otherworldly beauty of Ali Collier, the red enigma that gently awakens the submerged realm.

A bold and beguiling beauty in summer’s latest display

With the aspiring season of warmth moving into the northern hemisphere’s midst it is time to peel away the layering style of colder times and settle into something a little more vibrant. With winter declaring its dominance so persistently in the last few months it almost seems inconsequential not to celebrate the skinlessness and brilliance that comes with summer clothing.

Fabric, ink & the naked body: what do you see in this Rorschach test?

The way ink swirls through water like trails of cigarette smoke through the air makes for a visually captivating image. Like tea leaves or clouds or the splodges of paint in a Rorschach test, the swirls take on whatever meaning we give to them: an inky octopus, a tree spreading it’s branches like fingers, a ghost floating through time. Maybe a cloud of ink is…

Models Ieva and Aida Aniulyte similarly have you questioning whether you’re seeing double; and you are, in a sense, the sisters leaping from the screen in their identical pristine-featured beauty looks. Along with…

Strict lines & stark times

Indeed there’s a clean minimal feel to the sparse white backdrop, block colours and slightly architectural cuts, but Don West’s styling also brings in some more intricate black and white prints, some pops of vibrant colour and some fluidity of fabrics. Featuring the…

Fire in the sky, flames in the deep

There’s seemingly no end to the beauty that can be created when fashion dives into the depths, literally. Sometimes creating a breathtaking underwater shoot comes down to brilliant makeup that shines through the weight of the water, sometimes the wow factor is aided by reflections and ripples and waves. The only thing that you might say is mandatory is a wardrobe of flowing gowns and…
