Last year saw a slew of photo shoots inspired by the admirable aviator Amelia Earhart; with that theme having died down in the last few months, the photo series Coco by Simona Smrckova hopes to revive it yet again. This time around, however, it is a more anonymous approach to the old-world glamour that surrounded the early stages of flight technology.

More than that, the aviation theme in the photo series Coco by Simona Smrckova seems to take backseat to the overall subdued mood of each scene. Instead of sweeping shots of both model and hanger, this series focuses on closeups that try to hone in on the emotions of the model, as though trying to get so close, the viewer might be able to enter her mind.
