The two came together to create a sensual and yet tranquil set in a Victorian home. Both artists have worked on many sets in the past, but this set holds a special place in their hearts. Lilith is a multifaceted artist pursuing music, writing, modeling, photography, acting, dancing, and traditional artwork. Francisco is photographer and an inspiring filmmaker.
This is Natasha Szpakowski. She is 21 and lives in London. Bill Hart-French doesn’t normally work with fashion models but when he spotted Natasha online he knew that he had to photograph her. There was just something about her. It’s been a long hot summer in London and on what must have been the hottest day of all, Natasha and Bill got together at her place and took some pictures.
It’s a simple intimate series, shot with this girl (she’s a friend of mine), half Italian, half venezuelan, in the hills of Bologna, Italy at the sunset. We met there in the late afternoon of a Sunday. No make up at all, no styling. Only a few clothes in a small bag and her dog, Morgan, always with us. The sun went down fast, giving us a warm natural light, that we used almost always in the background, to give more atmosphere. We decided to not go for a full nude, we wanted people to play with fantasy.
The shooting took place with a charming model in Frankfurt city in the morning on a hot summer day. This gave us the spontaneous idea of nude posing. I used a digital full frame camera with 50mm lens.
Lauren Leola uses modelling to explore as many corners of the world as she can get to. In the Western Cape of South Africa, she has found a home away from home, a private paradise to come back to whenever it’s time to slow things down just a little. Bkkr is a photographer from Cape Town, South Africa. He loves the timeless quality of film photography and getting to work with new personalities and faces in front of his camera.
Zeno Gill was fortunate enough to collaborate with Mia while she was visiting NYC. It was hot as Hades outside, so they shot in an air-conditioned dance studio in Midtown Manhattan. The night before the collaboration, Zeno filled a roll of 35mm film with shots of optical illusions and some other graphic patterns with the intention of double-exposing them the next day with Mia.
His first time in Paris, Vera was my first shoot in the city he always dreamed of coming to. As the evening light shined through the windows, she taught me French as he captured her moving through the apartment effortlessly. Shot entirely on film. Stefan Legacy is a portrait/fine art photographer based in Edmonton, AB. He primarily shoots most of his work on film.
Dominique Huyghe met Dave Stanway in North Vancouver and they did an editorial for Tease Lux Lingerie. You were my cup of coffee; I needed you to start my day but all you did was leave a bitter taste in my mouth.
Millie Thompson contacted Stephan Small after seeing of my work online. After one of his shoots got cancelled Stephan contacted Millie to see if she fancied taking up the slot. Millie was excited and agreed to take me up on the offer so they met at the studio in Manchester and built up a really good vibe with each other and rest is history.
