Maxwell Clements photographed blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty Naty Belmont strolling down Venice Beach for a C-Heads editorial. Venice beach is a tourist attraction that draws millions of visitors each year. The eclectic neighborhood and beachfront is home to many performers, fortune-tellers, artists and vendors.
Each image, which was shot on 35mm film, was hand-printed, giving the editorial a super-saturated look. The color palette enhances Belmont's already ethereal looks. If you focus really hard, you can almost see the outline of a halo above her pretty blonde head.
Despite her innocent vibe, Belmont doesn't look out of place amidst the eccentric passers-by. In fact, she gets playful by flexing her (modest) biceps in front of a sign that reads, "The Original Location of Muscle Beach, Santa Monica, California."
