Mumbai, India-based fashion photographer Vishesh Verma's recent series 'Material Girl' is an enticing look at materialism, beauty and decadence.
In the first shot of the series, the model is shown slouching over a table wearing a pretty dress and a bored expression. Surrounding her are a dainty tea cups and bowls of fruit. In the second shot, the viewer finds the model greedily clutching handfuls of jewelry, again, wearing a bored expression. Subsequent frames follow this pattern more or less, occasionally waxing or waning in opulence.
Although the title Material Girl may lead one to believe the photoshoot is a critique of materialism, this doesn't seem to be the case. Instead, the photography comes off more as a expression of beauty of fashion.
