    Silver in Editorial / Fashion

Barcelona, Spain, March 2020. Originally, the theme was based upon the idea of "Surrender," photographed at Barcelona Cathedral and the surrounding area - ominously, unaware of the pandemic about to ensue. I met Ira Chil, my model for this shoot, at the Gala Awards. We are both photographers and award winners in the14th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards. Upon our meeting at the Gala Awards exhibition, we decided to do a photoshoot, reversing the roles of photographer and model. This set of images is part of a larger series.
