The photographs in the 'Dead Leaves by the Sea' Yani by Nirrimi editorial are depressive, mysterious, and gripping. The Yani by Nirrimi editorial features a series of pictures taken in Brisbane, Australia, by Nirrimi Firebrace, a 19-year-old photography wunderkind currently residing in Sydney, Australia.
Don't let Nirrimi's young age fool you. She's already an accomplished photographer, winning awards in Australia, shooting ad campaigns for Diesel in New York, and entering major corporate photography competitions (Billabong) in France and Italy.
In the Yani by Nirrimi collection, she captures a youthful and solitary model on dark, melancholy streets. Yani's intense blue-green eyes exude an alluring and mysterious aura that draws the viewer in further. My favorite image in the Yani by Nirrimi editorial features Yani curled up in the fetal position, gazing at the camera in an apprehensive manner. The shot is furtive, charming, and unusual -- it perfectly encapsulates the spirit of this shoot.
