An outfit never seems truly complete without a statement accessory piece, but the accessories featured in the photo series titled The Ritual by Claudia Goetzelmann, a globe-trotting photographer splitting her time between San Francisco and New York, may be a little too eccentric for everyday use. It features a slew of dramatic headdresses that are more suitable for the ritual alluded to in its title.
Shot on location in a barren desert, The Ritual by Claudia Goetzelmann stars model DeeDee Brown. The blonde beauty showcases the masked creations of Lucien Shaprio, who creates them out of recycled materials including dulled meat cleavers, butterfly specimens and more. The complementing modern wardrobe was put together by stylist Jessica Anton with wild tresses and natural makeup by Ericka Taniguchi.
