The new 'Hyper Ballads' editorial for Clash Magazine is shocking in its combination of intensity and intimacy. Model Kelly Mittendorf of Elite Model Management glares fiercely at the camera in a variety of intimate settings, making the viewer feel as if they're being drawn into the photographs.

Mittendorf was styled by Victoria Higgs, who placed the model in some minimalist designs, clearly being careful not to draw attention from Mittendorf's expressive poses. Mittendorf's makeup also heightens the intimacy of the photoshoot since her dark red lipstick and pale face combine to produce a feeling of intense drama.

Photographer Greta Ilieva has produced some fabulous work for Clash Magazine with 'Hyper Ballads.' Her use of stark shadows, extreme close-ups and intimate bedroom settings all serve to create a sensual photo spread. 'Hyper Ballads' is one of many photo shoots for Clash Magazine, but its highly emotional qualities make it an editorial to remember.
