In the editorial ‘Rest on Other Planet,’ the photographer Vitaly Krutikhin captures a helmet-wearing blonde leaping into the cloudy sky. With only two photographs in the series, the photographer makes an impact with the moody sky backdrops.

The photos are filled with soft blue and white colors where a girl sits and jumps within the vast setting. In one of the pictures, the model jumps towards the sky with her hands behind her. She looks like an adventurous explorer as she has on a large black backpack, gloves, elbow pads and a helmet. The background is empty, as rocks are scattered about and small trees line the horizon.

The ‘Rest on Other Planet’ photographs look up towards the mysterious sky where there are no openings between the clouds. The misty atmosphere creates beautiful shots where the model uses the open environment in order to form dynamic movements in a calm environment.
