Bambi Northwood-Blyth, Lisanne de Jong, Hannah Holman, Abbey & Meag by Benny Horne for Russh #38, Just Like Sisters
For a second there I thought that Bambi was Crystal Renn. She truly does resemble her in shot 8. In any case, I really like how Benny Horne decided to showcase these young models. The shots are beautifully cast, perfectly age-relevant, and romantically set. I’ve always appreciated his aesthetic–he captured Tati Coliar beautifully in “Ce Matin La“–but he’s most certainly growing as a photographer. I love the glimpses of familial intimacy between the girls (even they aren’t related in any way) that he depicts. They hardly feel contrived at all. And he intersperses just enough black and white shots to hook me. Not to mention, Bambi really shines in this piece (I knew that girl was special when Zanita Whittingon had captured her in “Desert Fox”); my focus is drawn to her each and every time.
