With an eye for the off-kilter side of feminine imagery, Yelena Yemchuk has made a name for herself in the world of fashion photography, creating striking visuals for magazines like Vogue Italia, Numero, Dazed & Confused and countless others. Though her big break came with the covers for Smashing Pumpkin’s now classic albums, her fashion work is no less stellar. In her latest work for 25 Magazine she taps into Carmen Kass‘s inner chameleon, creating a stripped down showcase for the iconic beauty’s transformation skills.
Transformation is a recurring theme in Yemchuk’s photos, every woman she captures takes on a bold new character, whether it is actress Kirsten Dunst going ethereal at the seashore, or Eniko Mihalik becoming a surrealist masterwork, the changes are always intriguing to see.
