Despite the title of this photo series, 'Forgotten Subject,' there is nothing forgettable about it. The minimalist outfits and pale faces are more striking than nondescript, making the model all the more memorable. A haunting photo shoot, Forgotten Subject was inspired by the story of Kaspar Hauser, a German youth who claims to have spent his entire childhood in total isolation.

The Forgotten Subject photo series imagines Hauser's point of view when exposed to a world full of light after leaving a cave of darkness. It is appropriate that Charlotte Kiekebos' fashion designs are so brightly simple. Shot by photographer Marjolein Audrey Banis, the Forgotten Subject series is mysterious with a touch of futuristic aesthetic. Makeup artist Anika Roelink accentuates these two qualities with a pallid look.
