“Elemental Fashion” is a book realized as assignment for the Colombian stylyst and dress designer Martha Arévalo.
In this first book about her creations, she decided to be also the model, in a game of conceptual mix with textiles and body performance. Every dress-chapter start with the drawning.
I decided create photo in a similar way to Polaroid, using a strong black and white following also the desires of the client.
