This vibrant new addition to our Spring Fling, comes to us via photographer Ester Erdelyi. Ester’s story, ‘The Secret Garden’, is a fresh and brilliant mash up of crisp photography with whimsical illustrations overlaid and inset around the subjects. The clean composition of the images lends a sharp backdrop for the more fanciful quality of the floral additions. The balance is divine; and strikes a perfectly flattering palette for the eccentric beauty of European models Vero Prikrylová, Ema Podbehlá and Michaela Grossová. With blanched styling, selected by the photographer herself, the airy beauty touches and intricate hairdos compliment the artistic flavor, without overwhelming it. This perfectly pretty editorial was an easy pick to ring in the arrival of spring. Enjoy!

Satiety Paper brings you a gorgeous new editorial from veteran contributor Elena Karma. Perhaps her most powerful to-date: the story spotlights a mercurial pair of young sisters, with penetrating energy and haunting gazes.
Dressed in their own clothing, the two girls need no additional adornment or pretense, in order to captivate their audience. The photographs are, in many ways, reminiscent of the raw authenticity seen in classical works of photographers the likes of Sally Mann and Dorothea Lange. Capturing the explosive quality of a young girl – housing woman, animal and universe inside her small body – Elena has produced a collection of images that simply transfix. There is no adequate counterfeit for the unbound nature of youth; and here, we have the opportunity to expand our own concept of the human experience, by devouring an inimitable, stolen moment of boundless potential. Above the grass, amidst the trees, beneath the yawning sky… may your mind luxuriate and your soul untether. Enjoy!
