The conception for the photo project was the creation of a perfect female image, romantic and mysterious, and at the same time daring and exciting. We can't see the naked body in the portraits, but we can easily imagine it, looking at the expressive forms that show through the light fabric. The hairstyle, makeup, composition, and light - everything complies with the style of fashion photography of the 20th century following the laws of the genre of classic black and white photography.
