In the editorial ‘Da Hood,’ Alexandra Superfunky captures fashion shots in an unpolished neighborhood setting. Pastel blue paint and blue hair make an appearance in the shoot that add to the visual appeal of the photographs.

A model stands in front of a distressed apartment building on which the paint is slowly chipping and peeling off of the wall. In one photo, the woman holds a child in front of the apartments with a diamond on her forehead and her wild hair pulled back into pigtails. With a graphic dress that blends into her surroundings, the photo looks realistic and is visually intriguing.

Alexandra Superfunky captures a rough neighborhood but allows the fashion and the hair and makeup to shine through, despite the location. The model works it despite people starring from the backdrop creating naturally fabulous shots.
