Going monochrome is a relatively simple technique that many photographers use, and sometimes because of its longevity and simplistic nature, it can be taken for granted -- but not in the Alicia Kuczman by Bruna Castanheira shoot. Here, it's easy to see how something so old school has stood the test of time as a brilliant photographic conceit.
The Alicia Kuczman by Bruna Castanheira shoot is for the September issue of L'Officiel Brazil, and features the stunning 20-year-old Brazilian beauty in a series of outfits from Brazilian labels like Colcci, Ellus and Lanca Perfume. Her angular face is the focus of many of the shots, the monochrome giving her intense facial expressions an extra jolt of definition.
My favorite image in the Alicia Kuczman by Bruna Castanheira L'Officiel Brazil shoot features the model in a pair of thigh high black boots, an open black dress shirt, and sexy black underpants. She exudes dangerous sex appeal and carefree charisma in the shot, making it plainly clear why she has drawn attention from major fashion brands like Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, and Jill Sander.
