The Smug 'Bear Mountain' editorial is wondrously wild. Set in the great outdoors, it follows three protagonists as they explore the rocky and watery landscape. Sensual and experimental, the images are beautifully cinematic and full of unrestrained emotion. It is this emotion that makes the photo shoot feel very cathartic.
Lensed by New York-based photographer Michael Donovan for the magazine's 5th issue, the Smug Bear Mountain editorial stars models Rasa Zukauskaite, Iekeliene Stange and Cora Keegan. Zukauskaite is clad in edgy, wild-eyed ensembles while Keegan is all woollen knits and naked skin, showing that each model is experiencing the wilderness in different ways.
The Smug Bear Mountain editorial accompanies Michael Donovan's Abbey Brother's Smug shoot.
