The Alejandro Sonoro Thats My Wife! photo series epitomizes the ultimate male marriage fantasy. Gorgeous German model Antonia Trettel is the star of the show, which tells a story shot in both still images and video. Having graced the covers of such international editorials as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, Trettel was cast at the perfect time for this campaign, as her career is taking off. The styling for the shoot was done by duo Anna and Borja using fashion from Christhian Lacroix and Casadei.

Alejandro says this about the story: "I really like when the model and the location play off each other, and become one. I also tried to make Antonia be a bit shameless without loosing the Rita Hayworth 50′s glam." There's no doubt that Sonoro succeeded in this effort, as the shoot strikes the perfect balance between salaciousness and elegance.

Implications - Fantasies are an element of sexuality that are easy to play up in art and photography, as both are acceptable outlets for expression of taboo topics that defy societal norms.
