The Imogen Watt by Jessica Sim editorial is no girly walk in the park.

Shot by Jessica Sim, the series evokes a haunting nostalgia. Model Imogen Watt whisks her way through the swampy atmosphere like a girl guide left behind. Her piercing blue gaze is made more provoking with thick globs of rust-colored shadow. The photographs have a a certain transparency and luminescence created through overexposure and emphasis on texture. The overall effect is quite ghost-like. The grittiness of the captures keep the collection warm and nostalgic despite the looming angst. Beyond being aesthetically pleasing, the collation has an intensity that calls up a subtle twinge of childhood.

The Imogen Watt by Jessica Sim editorial take viewers on an intense stroll down memory lane. The photographs are beautifully rendered and hauntingly engaging.
