This editorial, originally named 'When The Dawn Breaks' and published in the June 2011 edition of Elle UK was actually re-printed in the July 2011 edition of Elle Russia as 'Neon Girl.' In this post I have combined all of the photos from both editorials and I have put them together. 

This shoot features English model Erin Heatherton. It was photographed by Enrique Badulescu and styled by Anne-Marie Curtis, both of whom are the major reason for the success of this editorial. For once, it has not been the "wow-factor" of the model that pulled an editorial through, but the background team in the production and post-production stages (the exposure and digital enhancement of colours). Of course, Heatherton does some amazing work let us not discount that. 

I have included the pictures that involve nudity because, once again, I believe it to be an appropriate and justified artistic decision. Much of fashion has become raunchy and sexy for sexy sake. This is not one of those cases in my opinion.

  1. Interesting colour palette. I don't think I'll ever take to HDR photography of people.
