As far as unsettling fashion photoshoots go, the 'Angel on the Beach' series by Manoj Jadhav is topnotch. Although images of scrapes, cuts and blood are certainly not the most pleasant thing in the world, they produce reactions in viewers.

From angel wings to splotches of blood, Manoj Jadhav cleverly juxtaposes angel-like aesthetics with gore to create a striking contrast that grabs attention. He also manages to do this in an elegant way that still maintains an element of prettiness.

The model's beauty coupled with the balanced composition of the photography help to keep the Angel on the Beach aesthetically appealing despite its macabre accents. In fact, the red blood actually matches much of the model's clothing and accessories.
