Dark romance

The photography concept was inspired by botanical and dark romance atmosphere. The research about botanical led me to find images of flowers which were made of unconventional materials, such as different types of paper and for this reason i decided my creation to be totally made of paper. Furthermore, the ‘flowery construction’ that surroundes the model is, also, made of paper. On the other hand, the dark romance research helped me to think about the hole sense-atmosphere of the photoshoot. I wanted to borrow the beauty of a woman of the Renaissance like this is depicted in Rossetti’s paintings. A crystal beauty with an exotic touch like the rare flowers. The combination of botanical and dark romance had as a result an image of a woman who charms with her beauty like a flower as well.
