The Glass Magazine 'Hope is a Waking Dream' editorial is not only well-shot and captivating, but powerfully thought-provoking. With a title so loaded, and pictures conveying such strong emotions through use of color and sullen looks from the models, how could it not be?
The shoot eludes to hope in the homosexual world and a culture of acceptance and sense of self. With the setting and lighting so simple and monochromatic in the shoot, the focus is on the model's emotions, facial expressions and beautiful clothing. The combination of these elements makes for a powerful message.
The 'Hope is a Waking Dream' editorial was shot by Neil Kirk with styling by David Nolan. The spread features such designers as Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and Gucci.
