The gritty grunge look has made a comeback since its heyday in the early 90s, and John Ciamillo's captures of fresh face Neele Hoeper is a prime example of how this dark and edgy look makes for a fabulous fashion statement.

Donning a black oversized hoodie, white crop top, and black tuque, Neele is the portrait of teen angst, with moments of honesty and fragility captured perfectly by Ciamillo's lens. Her clothing -- reminiscent of Lisbeth Salander of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' -- fades into the background in some shots, causing the viewer to focus directly on the model's face.

Walking the fine line between fashion photography and art portraiture, John Ciamillo's gripping series of Neele Hoeper photos is a perfect example of effective black-and-white photography.
