Bettina Genten is a 24-year-old photographer from Brussels, Belgium with a knack for capturing lithe, bohemian models in candid settings without losing an ounce of the sex appeal that makes much of fashion photography so fascinating.
In Bettina Genten's story "The Outskirts," she focuses her very capable lens on newcomer Vicky Lugentz. The editorial tells a story of a beautiful girl who wanders the outskirts of a major city on her own, finding solace in a dark and barren place.
Lugentz is captivating. She has a definitive hipster girl next door appeal and Bettina Genten does a good job of giving her room to shine, allowing the story to be told through Lugentz' soft and angelic facial expressions.
Neither Vicky Lugentz or Bettina Genten have broken into the commercial fashion world yet and that may be a good thing. Enjoy this artistic and understated editorial.
