Entry Description

I have loved and collected anatomical models for a number of years. I wanted to create a sophisticated but very strong shoot. To be visually arresting as well as interesting. Alongside the 'muscular' hair I wanted the make-up to be the protagonist in this shoot. I wanted a style with very strong graphic lines and colors that mimic those of the surroundings, helping to place the (human) model in the same context as the anatomical models. We shot this series at a veterinary university in Milan in half a day. The work was comissioned for the website of Vogue Italia.
