Traveling circus instead of a catwalk: an unusual photo shoot for Vogue magazine

The world of high fashion is always eccentric, and talented photographers are often willing to experiment. It is good when as a result of such joint efforts, pleasant photo projects are born. A striking example is a series of photographs taken by American will Davidson for the March issue of the Australian edition of Vogue magazine.

We have already told the readers of our website Culturology about unusual photo sessions on the pages of Vogue magazine. roo. Today we will talk about the works of will Davidson, which look surreal and very refined. Sophisticated Chinese model Liu Wen (Liu Wen) looks fantastic in the middle of a hot desert surrounded by… scenery of a traveling circus. Some people may find the idea absurd, but a talented photographer was able to implement it brilliantly.

Despite the fact that it is quite difficult to understand what a pretty model does under the scorching sun in a deserted desert, a girl in outfits from Tommy Hilfiger, Chanel, Alberta Ferretti and Imperio Armani looks very attractive. Skilfully selected accessories complement the chic images, and the mysterious clown who appears in some pictures, and even acts as a dreamer or a page in love. The “circus” atmosphere gives the photo shoot a touch of romance and subtle adventurism, and the fatigue on Liu Wen’s face seems to remind that life is not such a simple thing, but as soon as the lights are lit, smiles will once again Shine on the stage.
