Au natural


Sometimes it takes quite an amount of time and workload to notice a photographer’s style and shooting preferences but currently, I am in love with Sofia Sanchez & Mauro Mongiello. Their work can be found mostly in Numéros and apparently, they like all things flowers, fruits, lips, sultry colours… total femininity.

This is their most recent work, Puppet” for Numéro Korea #6, featuring the oh-so awesome Myf Shepherd.

And this editorial, “Agua Caliente” for Numéro #94 featuring Coco Rocha, is arguably one of their best work in 08′, I have chosen this as part of my Top 10 editorials of the past year. The images are sensual seduction at it’s best, very beautiful, creative and captivating. It is inspired by Ophelia, a painting by Millais.

“Sortilège” in Numero #93 with Magdalena is tribal and dirty, a little different from their usual ‘prettier’ work but still, you can’t ignore the presence of the over-loaded amount of… plants.

Looking forward to see more of their editorials in Numero.
