Photography duo Marcin and Natalia Kontraktewicz bring provocative religious-inspired imagery to high fashion in their 'Mary & Magdalene' photoshoot. Starring models Robert Ryzek and Kate of WonderModels, the edgy ecclesiastical editorial borrows themes from biblical stories in a way that is visually stunning and breathtaking.

Taking a bold approach to the story of Adam and Eve, and recreating famous depictions of religious figures like Jesus and the Virgin Mary, Marcin and Natalia Kontraktewicz create a sense of mystery and danger in the editorial. Styled by Natalia herself, the models don pieces from Kawalko, High Life with Jeffrey Campbell, Charlotte Rouge and more.

Using vibrant colors, controversial themes and haute styling, Marcin and Natalia Kontraktewicz make Mary & Magdelene one of this year's most memorable editorials. Stats for Provocative Cross-Bearing Captures Trending: Older & Warm
