The photo shoot titled Poseidon’s Courtesan by Alice Luker has a painfully cold, but beautiful aesthetic that can only be associated with the ocean. Filled with bright whites, metallic golds and cool blues, the wardrobe is befitting of a sea god's lover.

Styled by Holly Cox, Poseidon’s Courtesan by Alice Luker is rife with texture as well. According to Bloginity, the young United Kingdom-based photographer "cites the inspiration behind the shoot as the curse of beauty and vanity, stating that through the model appearing somewhat vulnerable and emotive throughout the series, the beholder can sense the darker side and the consequence of obsessive vanity."

The rustic setting only adds to this darker side while Defaf Alamri's hair and makeup polishes the beauty.
