Photographer Luca Meneghel has created a whimsical set of images that appear inspired by paper doll toys. Treating model Maria Palagushkina as though she were a little girl's plaything, he dresses her after the fact. Essentially, Maria Palagushkina superimposes diaphanous frocks onto her body. To give his photoshoot an even stronger surreal effect, Luca Meneghel lets his hands remain in the shots.
Based in Como, Italy, Luca Meneghel worked in collaboration with stylist Norma Nardi, who created the simple hand drawn looks. Soft and delicate, Luca Meneghel's vision was perfected by beauty artist Sabine Gutwenger who created equally feminine updos as well as a flawless face.
Overall, Luca Meneghel created a magical world any girl would fall in love with.
