Valeria Dmitrienko by Dima Hohlov for The Dirty Durty Diary
Another intriguing editorial for The Dirty Durty Diary. This time it is a intense theatrical dedication by Dima Hohlov. It celebrates the works of costume designer William Ivey which have appeared in several well known productions such as “Chicago,” “The Producers,” and “Nine.” It feels fiercely edgy in spite of the dramatic volume and romantic lace to some of the costumes. I like how each shot is set to stand on its own yet still carries on a continuity to tie the entire series together. And Valeria has some fantastic bone structure. It certainly stands out prominently in the featured shot in particular. I love the tribute to theater and how it feels dramatic without being camp. Lovely job Dima Hohlov.
