Haunting. And stunning. I love art that moves me in some way. I can’t decide if it’s the messy crazy hair or if it’s the white false eyelashes, but this editorial is most definitely a little twisted. But in a good way. Especially with the naked light bulb just dangling there, Mariacarla manages to work quite well with a sparse set. It could be how empty the setting is that’s slightly creeping me out. Or possibly the doll allusions I’m getting. In any case, this is a beautiful, haunting, and perhaps slightly tragic editorial. And all I can ask is: more please.
