Damien Vignaux Elroy rendered this dark visionary series of creepy couture.

Shot for Swedish designer OBSCUR, Elroy's editorial is an eerie perspective of the fashion. OBSCUR clothing is inspired by "the dark and misty landscapes of Scandinavia" as said on the company's site. The photos feature a creepy, human-like beast with talons and gnarly hands. The lanky model is perfectly directed. Elroy's excellent use of lighting heightens the chilling theme of the series. The photos are taken in high contrast, with some elements out of focus. Elroy also masterfully uses layers of exposure to create a spider-like villain. The sense of movement is immediate and unusual, leaving viewers curious.

Damien Vignaux Elroy's editorial work is deeply engaging and artistically wonderful.
