Polish-based photographer Marta Streng lensed historical compassion in 'Walk of Your Heart.' The editorial follows a middle class Victorian couple through a sunny autumn day spent on their land. Model Lena Jackiewicz boasts a shock of fiery red hair and an anxious expression. Her skillful posing and slight facial structuring gives the series a more dynamic narrative, as if the couple are star-crossed lovers.

Photographer Marta Streng uses lighting masterfully, better evoking a sense of historical weight and things past. The subtle romance between the couple is created with out overt visual passion, which allows more depth to the characters. One of the most memorable pieces from the collection is a capture of the couple dancing in dust, as if they are conscious that they will eventually fade.
