Behind the Mask

February 27th, 2010 Posted by Janelle comments (23)

Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin have always pushed the boundaries of fashion photography and with their latest editorial for V, they break exciting new ground. Working with stylist Panos Yiapanis and artist Paddy Hartley, the duo creates a compelling series of shots reminiscent of their classic story, ‘Before and After’. The entire team is on point with this one: Hartley’s one of a kind plexiglass face corsets, make models Eniko Mihalik, Raquel Zimmermann and Anja Rubik look like extraterrestrial beings, and Yiapanis’ sleek styling keeps things on trend.

Exclusively for For the full 14 page editorial and many more exciting stories check out V64, on newsstands March 2nd.

    Very cool images. These are very fresh. Lovin’ that hair on Raquel. And of course Anja and Eniko continue to rock unstoppable..

    Anja looks a little like Christopher Walken a la Batman Returns in the first image. So chic.

    i must say the makeup and digital imaging is good but not attractive in any way

    i find kind of cheap putting together a concepet like this with a nacked brest..just to make sure that “everybody” will like it …plus the major photoshop totally destroy the dramatic intention
