Anoush and I wanted to create fine art through the lens, more than just an image, or beauty shot. We wanted to create a set of short stories that are defined by the emotion of the model, her eyes, lips, body structure.
Being originally from France, I realized how beautiful that country was once I left it to go study and work in the US. That’s why I wanted to create a shoot that shows Paris, and its amazing city. In fact, there is nowhere else in the world where you can find such architecture, and ambiance.
Nina Pak works with photography, painting, and mixed media artworks. By emphasizing aesthetics, Pak seduces the viewer into a world of bright and joyful moments full of hidden nuance, an interval in time, that articulates the poetic meaning in our lives.
We shot the story in natural surroundings to bring the pieces to life. Rich greens against the crisp whites as well as the shoreline against bright prints create a striking contrast bringing the viewer’s eyes to the garments and the model.
