The trees close in on the little piece of precious metal that glints in the sudden ray of light that managed to get through the thicket of branches. Close to the floor of the forest, the soft grass smells like the ground on which paradise rests. I can feel it bend and elastically support my step as I carry my lighting equipment into the forest.
This fashion shoot is not about a fashion shoot about clothing. It is about a different kind of fashion. A fashion of jewelry, small, precious pieces of art with symbolic and to many magical meaning and value. Mercedes Shaffer, the artist of this line and my client, receives a lot of inspiration from nature – it was just natural to photograph her collection in a California forest protected as wilderness.
Nature’s creations and a beautiful woman’s creations in poetic and esthetic symbiosis.
