Fashion photographer Dusan Jaukovic blends primitive tribal beauty with high fashion opulence in his stunning editorial, aptly titled Alter Native.

The precise and gorgeous styling by Jelena Malesevic pairs bare skin and minimal makeup with bold, natural flowers, jet black lace and dramatic hairpieces like decadent headdresses. The model is showcased against muted, natural backgrounds in this neo-tribal pictorial which effortlessly combines a raw and primitive aesthetic with high fashion glamor.

The series, despite the revelation of plenty of bare skin, displays a natural and raw sensuality without coming across as overtly sexual. The photograph of the model, her head bedecked in lilies, is reminiscent of Greco-Roman depictions of royalty. Indeed, there are glimpses of Bacchanalia in these compelling images, which seem to speak of wild freedom and our place in the natural world.
