Soft pearlescent hues dominate this photo-series. The young model holds a flower to her lips in a gesture at once reminiscent of a cigarette and hyper-aware of the flower’s symbolism for youth and beauty. The nod to the nude created by loose clothing and shots that focus on the model’s bare shoulders aligns these works with classical art, her dewy skin contrasting with her dark features to intensify her beauty.
