The Tar Magazine Spring/Summer 2012 Valerija Kelava photoshoot is entirely focused upon the Slovenian model's cranium. Bright, multi-hued floral headpieces are displayed here, as well as metallic red and gold face paint, glistening amid the walls of ancient historic spaces.
This facially oriented editorial was taken by photographers Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello. Large ornate murals and abandoned soccer nets add to the strange yet incredibly beautiful plot, allowing Kelava to assume new eccentric roles.
The fashion pieces displayed are similarly avant-garde, showcasing long ivory capes, animal print dresses and bold yellow sneakers. In many of the pictures Kelava appears almost lifeless, staring intently into the distance with no sign of emotion. This still quality is remarkable, producing an unnamed drama.
