Model Alexey Samosadov embraces the skeletal side of photography for the 'Ultimate' winter 2011 issue. The quarterly magazine promotes avant-garde men's fashions for the season and through the eyes of photographer Philipp Ndzana, this editorial is a badass representation of culture and style.
The shoot entitled 'Ruddy' includes several black and white images of the model, with highlighted red skeletons that channel the inner darkness in each shot.
Implications - A very chiseled Alexey Samosadov is styled in long chain necklaces, fingerless gloves and a fashionable pair of sweat pants. The creepy red skeletons within the photos connect with the model for a chilling visual effect. In one fearsome image, Samosadov's face is dripping with red muscle tissue.
