Every two weeks, online fashion platform A Fashion Friend releases a variety of locally-produced, exclusive, online fashion editorials by a range of SA’s recognized and emerging photographers and stylists.
For their latest issue, Cape Town-based German photographer Julia Janse Van Vuuren collaborated with established South African hair and make-up artist Nikkila Mann. Together they produced this creative beauty shoot titled Delirium.
Julia let us know more about the idea, “I was inspired by a futuristic and psychedelic mixture of abstract art and colour. They are all close-up shots that put a spin on conventional beauty. By making certain parts of the image illuminate with colour, it makes the viewer take a second look at what they consider to be beautiful.”
