Ancient Wisdom

 Sølve Sundsbø for Vogue China February 2014

  I always love a good shoot in the desert. A vast expanse of sky, contrasted against rich sands that go on and on forever.  Or a rugged terrain piercing the blue expanse with it's rocky points.  So many looks can be achieved in one backdrop. Can I just say, I'm in love with this Editorial for Vogue China, Ancient Wisdom.  Incorporating natures gifts as the Ancients did; feathers, shell, bone and amazing textural fabrics that blend perfectly with the 'set'. It invites me to further explore. Inspiration, I'm seeing tribal, bohemian and the drama of a 1960's movie.  This isn't just a shoot one can skim over, there are too many elements in each shot to draw you in...
