David Michael Cortes Captures the Energy of ‘South LA&#

Photographer David Michael Cortes used the natural bright light of the sun and colorful backdrops to digitally seize the vitality of the city in ‘South LA.’

Model Corrie Lejuwann sports the brightest shades of purple, blue, yellow and red and as she stands against brightly painted walls, the end result is almost like a painting. The model wears demure makeup and it really makes her clothes pop. Featuring fun articles like blazers, strapped wedge heels, short dresses and floral tops, Lejuwann looks cheery and youthful despite her calm facial expressions.

Cortes did a great job at mixing the energy of Lejuwann’s clothes—chosen by stylist Matthew Hensley—with the effervescence of the city’s walls.
