“We escaped Canada for a few weeks and ended up in Joshua Tree, California for a few days before moving onto our next destination. Since our early shoots together Elizabeth has taken on an active role in the direction of our shoots. We loved being out in the middle of nowhere with nothing by the california sun and a cowboy pool to pass the time.”
“This is the second time I hook up with Alona for a creative fun shoot.” Shay Segev laughs. “She’s highly intelligent, calm and positive person. We decided to meet at the beach (where else?) for an unplanned summer shoot. I call it “Summer Suite” because of the light changes throughout the photoshoot. Like the mood changes in musical suite.”
With nearly five years in the making, the ongoing project “Body & Nature” by currently Oslo based artist Helena Loekkeberg explores the body in movement with nature. “My series is a long lasting search for genuine conversations between our surroundings and ourselves, where human interactions in and with nature are explored and discovered.”
This shooting day was something special. Beatrice and Alberto celebrate their very first anniversary. They both still know exactly how they got to know each other. One does not forget such a day, right? The light flows gently into the rooms. The studio is located in Via Margutta, in the same street Audrey Hepburn stayed in the movie Roman Holiday. There is love in the air. As enchanting as in every beginning dwells a magic force.
“Although technology has become so useful for us I think it’s definitely important to practice putting your phone down and enjoying what’s around you.” The Brutalist architecture of the Barbican Estate hidden in the most inner district of London was the only appropriate location to shoot Ella – an artist and architectural student.” explains photographer Adam Laws.
Talia smiles. And for a second, I forget the world and I smile too. We are becoming big fans of the sensual and natural work by Robert Vincze. In his third C-Heads Exclusive the London based photographer teamed up with dreamy model Talia of Profile Model Management. “The photos were taken in Hackney, London during the heatwave.
Both based in Amsterdam and longtime fans of each others’s work, photographer Kwabena Appiah-nti and luxury lingerie designer Tisja Damen joined hands to create a new truly wonderful story together in Brazil. To really capture Rio de Janeiro’s vibes and not have to hurry or plan out the shoots, Kwabena used his own girlfriend Shunyata Ossewaarde as the model.
“Sophi Knight was the perfect face for this shoot. I wanted a certain vintage aesthetic for this shoot and wanted those beachside vibe to make this work.” Andrew Obtinalla still sounds so thrilled when talking about his recent shooting and there is no doubt that Sophi looks smashing.
Left Brain is best known as one of the founding members of music collective Odd Future and duo MellowHype, but is now enjoying his time in the spotlight as a solo artist. Christopher Brown got to catch up with him on the streets of LA where he discussed his new solo album, goat yoga, and his plans for the future.
With our new series “An artist´s life.” we want to share the stories of the people behind the art. “In life, everything and anything can go wrong at any moment so instead of planning something ‘to a T’ I just utilize what I have in that moment. Art in general adds joy to someone’s soul, and I believe instead of making this field extremely competitive and out of reach, companies should open up more jobs and help the artists of this world grow and really make a living.”
“We spent a warm sunset together. We met for taking pictures but all we did was play.” Photographer Pablo Gil laughs. “Maria and me played with light, we played with colors, heat and freshness. Green, white, yellow, red. We turned the bedroom into a flamenco show, and the living room became a sacred temple right away. It was an intimate game of laughters, characters and fun. I guess that is our Spanish essence.”
