Vintage black-and-white photographs have the ability to bring about feelings of nostalgia, but their eerie quality also brings forth a ghostly or haunting sense, as captured perfectly in Emil Monty Freddie's series of Kamille portraits.

The Dutch photographer shines new light on the standard lingerie shoot by snapping shots of new model Kamille in untraditional and almost typically unflattering poses, exposing a vulnerability and fragility in the woman. The monochromatic and blurred effects give a mysterious quality to the photos, almost like they were never meant to be seen by anyone else's eyes.

While I completely embrace glamorous fashion shoots, there is something about Emil Monty Freddie's Kamille portraits that leaves a lasting impression, and comes across as much more than just a fashion photoset.
