Close your eyes and travel back in time with this classically beautiful Igor Vasiliadis Depesha Magazine editorial. The shoot adopts the ethereal elegance of a 16th century work of art while seducing readers with a modern sensuality. An epically long series of daguerreotypes that feature models Katia Elizarova, Sasha Sergeeva, Ekaterina Morozova, Masha Kalinina, and Irina Zhuravska, the shoot is more than a little unusual. The various looks sported throughout the shot are reminiscent of some of the innovative styles brought forth by Lady Gaga and her groundbreaking ideas.
Shot for the #5 Fall 2011 issue of the avant-guarde fashion mag, each shot is more extravagant than the one before. I can't take my eyes off of Galina Smirnskaya's sizzling selections. As Touch Puppet says, "Sally Mann would be proud."
