The 'Flying Colors' editorial in the September 2013 issue of Details magazine features a bright, monochromatic palette in an MC Escher-like setting.

Models Eric Ramos and Nadav Heyman are shot by photographer Lacey and shown suspended in surreal situations. Props like stairs and seating give viewers a frame of reference as to which way is up or down, but this perspective is turned on its head as if gravity was non-existent.

The 'Flying Colors' photoshoot uses a striking mix of color and shape to create moments that seem frozen in time. In several of the shots, the models are posed in ways that would be impossible to replicate in reality, at least at the same time, much alike an Escher painting.
