Ashley Smith: freckles and diamonds

Ashley Smith at times gets typecast into busty-babe roles that have her posing for Terry Richardson or looking the pinnacle of grunge-rock chic. But leave it to photographer Pierre Dal Corso to present us with one of the most beautiful shoots of Ms Smith we’ve yet laid eyes on: strikingly natural and with her unique features – her gap tooth smile, her freckles – played…

Masking it

Masks come in many forms: comical, dramatic, literal, figurative. For Masquerade Magazine Pierre Dal Corso created this photo series inspired, quite simply and appropriately, by the concept of the mask. From the superhero eye mask to some rather unconventional pieces of masquerade art, each shot is creatively styled by Lou Tardy-Joye.

Fierce, fearless, fetishist

Not to go over the top with the alliteration, but those three words do spring to mind: Fierce. Fearless. Fetishist. Pierre Dal Corso wins us over yet again with his shoot for L’Edito Magazine in which a completely transformed, pink-haired Laura Blokhina pulls strong poses that match the visual impact of Ilona Glapa’s styling without hesitation.

Life, distanced from reality

Some models are chosen to fit the concept, and some concepts are born of the model. The latter is when model transcends into muse. Inspired by Lorena, his model and muse on this shoot, Pierre Dal Corso set out to create something sexual but with a sophisticated distance; to capture the ‘animal thing’ possessed by her. We see Lorena’s naked skin, strong features, deep eyes,…

Exhibitionist tendencies

Mostly we think of exhibitionism as a desire for exhilaration, the thrill of danger, or an act designed to provoke a response. In a world of being captive by a bourgeois life, as with our protagonist of this particular shoot, it becomes instead a liberation. Rebellion is as simple as doing something that life dictates you can’t do. The styling by Delphine Dubreuil & Sarah…

Where the wild roses grow

There’s a dark, Gothic subplot that’s been weaving its way through the fashion world, season after season, morphing and evolving. And as other fashion trends take to the mainstream so are they mirrored, often, in that dark underworld. Pierre dal Corso captures the present sentiments brilliantly in a shoot for Remember Paper magazine’s third issue, bringing elements like shrouds of lace, black roses, and leggings…

Static, but not lifeless

The inspirations feeding Pierre Dal Corso‘s latest shoot were all cold, static things: porcelain dolls, wax figures, marble statues… and the colour white, presented through various shades and layers of texture that add depth to the concept. But for all of those things, for model Johanna Feldmeier’s pale skin and greyish hair, the shoot is far from lifeless.

Vahina Giocante: a portrait

Is art of portraiture a dying one? While we’re constantly photographing and constantly photographed, while we have a camera (or three) on our person at any given time, what it actually means is that we’re all about capturing moments and memories and whatever’s happening right now, rather than taking portraits in sittings in a purposeful way. The modern portrait is one that’s taken at an…

Bond girl for the modern day

Take note, costume designers of the James Bond franchise; for here’s an interpretation of modern-day Bond girl that would not be so quickly forgotten. But it’s not a reinterpretation of the floor-length slinky gowns and classic day-wear. This shoot by Pierre Dal Corso takes some 70s influences – fitting for the super-cool retro design of The Seven Hotel’s James Bond-inspired suite – but also mixes…

A distorted glare

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – the 70s fashion trend with flares, bright colours and platform shoes are a dominating theme right now coming through from campaigns, catwalks and fashion shoots alike. Here models Nane Fesit and Crista Cober are beautifully shot by Pierre Dal Corso in a rather purposely distorted manner adding a unique effect and sense of movement to…
