The photo series titled Roses by Luca Meneghel, an Italian photographer based in Bolzano, is aptly named. Soft, frail and full of feminine beauty, there may not be actual roses in the photoshoot, but the model easily stands in for one. Captured in a sun-drenched room in a pale wardrobe, she could easily be mistaken for a haunting wraith or angelic creature of some sort.
Starring Maria Jose Candela, Roses by Luca Meneghel channels the dream of spring and summer, something that many people living on the northern side of the hemisphere wish was more than that by now. Imagining the brunette beauty as a breath of fresh air, stylist Daisy Welponer clads her in loose dresses while beauty artist Sabine Gutwenger concentrates on a natural appearance.
