Emilie Moysson’s new editorial for Numero Thailand entitled ‘Bold’ is just that: bold.
From the over-saturated colors to the stark outfits, Bold is a memorably melancholic spread. Featuring model Tanya Chubko, the editorial depicts a solitary woman among the cold surroundings of urban life. The photographs are fragmented, showing bits and pieces of the model’s body instead of her entire figure. One pair of photos displays Chubko’s socked feet against a mosaic orange background, while the other shows her pale face against the same background, invoking a sense of unstable continuity in the spread.
Moysson’s stance on urban life is clearly critical. As many artists have pointed out in the past, such as T.S. Eliot, the modern world can be bleak with its reliance on technology instead of human contact. Moysson focuses on getting this message across in her ‘Bold’ spread, using the techniques of fragmentation and a stark, isolating color palette to enhance her point.
Emilie Moysson’s editorial is poetically avant-garde, aiming not only to create a stunning fashion spread, but to tell a haunting and relevant modern story.
