Visionary artist Diana Santisteban creates a glaring, futuristic playground in our newest editorial: ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’. The story combines the strong architecture of structured designs, with the modern pop of metallics and neons. Versatile protagonist Victoria (@ Ford Models) lends her powerful presence and postures to the photographer’s striking compositions; for a standout collaboration. With minimal grooming touches by Ianna Walker, Victoria’s natural beauty shines brightly, and softens the androgynous undertones of the wardrobe. All clothing designs were selected and arranged by stylist Jessica Maldonado. This team struck an ideal chemistry for this edgy series. Enjoy!
Photographer Anna Daki returns to Satiety Paper with a beautiful compliment to her first collection of images in the ‘Body Architecture’ series. Anna has been working on this series, as her signature piece, for over a year; and will continue to add to the collection throughout her career. The series (which originally included several up-and-coming, female faces) is now accompanied by this latest addition: featuring striking, Slovak beauty, Inna Nechyporenko (GH Management). Inna mirrors the strength and grace of Anna’s original vision, with seamless precision. Her angular characteristics make her an ideal subject, to offset the staunch canvas of the white background. The model appears with a naturally clean, moisturized face, and minimal grooming (by hair stylist, Anna Ermilina). These images are powerful; and the femininity in each expression, balances out the geometric rigidity of the structured poses. It’s a flawless continuance of what we already know to be a masterful demonstration of artistic refinery. It’s a pleasure to release the newest supplement to this covetable collection. Enjoy! Credits

1. Can you describe yourself for us in 5 words?
Patient, Open, Reticent , Thoughtful, Honest
2. Can you remember the first time you picked up a camera? Your first subject?
My first subject was my old friend from school; in 2007. She was a beautiful woman, and I wanted to show her how I experienced her beauty.
3. What made you choose photography? Or did it choose you?!
I don’t know who choose whom. I believe that it was just a life coincidence, a good coincidence. I studied architecture originally, but after a few years I realized it wasn’t my life’s mission. Then I decided to give my beloved hobby a try, and explore whether or not it might be the right direction for my life. To be honest, I never thought this career would develop so quickly.
4. Are you drawn to a particular style of photography, as a connoisseur? Are there specific artists that inspire your style?
There are a few photographers who are my absolute inspirations like Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindberg, Paolo Roversi. I’d say I have a classical style of photography, but I’m open to experiencing new techniques.
5. Do you prefer shooting with models or with friends? And when you do shoot models…favorite agencies to work with, or specific subjects?
I never have restrictions to a model or not; if I a see a beautiful person (who may be a friend, an acquaintance or a professional) I would just ask to take an image of him/her. Job-wise: of course I work more often with professional models, but also many actresses, bloggers and other civilians.The agencies that I work with most are: M4, 2PM, Core, Izaio, Spin and a lot of independent scouters.
6. Also: is it easier to shoot men or women? Why?!
For me, there is zero difference (in the sex of the model); if its man or a woman. It’s about the beautiful human being.
7. Where do we find you living these days?
I live in the city of Berlin! Of course, I travel a lot and working in many different places, in different countries, around the world. Mostly I am in Berlin.
8. Favorite environment to work in…Studio or on location?
My studio gives me a great feeling of control, power and security; and sometimes for the model, it is easier to open up in the studio. Of course, I also love location shootings. Even if I’m on a vacation, if I spot an amazing setting, I go crazy to try and find a model for a few shots.
9. Do you have an intuitive way to identify a location for your shoots? When you see it, does it just feels right to you? Or are there different planning/ selection steps
I think every photographer or creative mind has this intuition. You just see it and it’s like: “Damn, so here it shall be!”. But it doesn’t always work out. I check the lighting and then I do some test shots, so I can see if the images that are produced, match the vision that I’ve imagined.
10. Do you love the control of diverse lighting set ups, or do you prefer working with natural light?
I love the control of creating in my studio, yes. But there is nothing in this world as beautiful as the magical light of a natural sunset. There is no artificial light arrangement that can simulate that!
11. As a very successful photographer already…What’s “the dream” Anna?
First, thank you for asking me this question. I don’t think I’m of myself as being a ‘successful’ photographer yet; but I will assert that I am on my way there! My dream is to have no walls inhibiting me from unlimited creation: no model or celebrity that I wouldn’t be able to work with. That fantasy would include the greatest clients in the world, and being appreciated by the worlds most creative minds.
12. Finally, on a personal note, tell us your favorite things: vacationing spot, type of music, a splurge, a designer you love, and or your drink of choice (if you have one)?!
Vacation: Somewhere very very warm; with a beautiful beach!
Music: Madonna, Depeshe Mode, Trentemoller
Designer: Jil Sander
Drink: Black Coffee, NO milk!
Photographer: Anna Daki
Hair: Anna Ermilina ( Vanessa Nouveau )
Skyrocketing young talent, Yara Khmidan, mesmerizes readers in this gorgeous studio series from photographer Alex Muccilli for Satiety Paper’s spring edition. Yara is a sensual stunner in smoldering, earthy beauty palettes and a tumbling cascade of healthy, flowing locks. She dons an array of frothy and silken neglige with the ease of a second skin; and exposes the vulnerability of her femininity with comfortable confidence. The sometimes cool/ sometimes warm periwinkles, lavenders and indigos are a serene compliment to Yara’s cinnamon and nutmeg complexion. The clean composition of the imagery allows the subject to wholly dominate the focus of each frame, without competition. Reminiscent of the classic Victoria’s Secret boudoir shoots from iconic photographer Russell James; this set is pretty enough for hanging as a focal point in large, luxurious prints. Enjoy!
Welcome to our newest editorial from Swiss photographer (and team) Ramon Spaeti. ‘Hip To Be Square’ encapsulates modern style, and effortless energy; mixed high on a turntable to some carefree funk. The story is an ironic blend of cheeky and demure. It plays on fashion’s light hearted origin as a costume art, and a way to make light of the seriousness of our lives. The protagonista, Michelle M. was a perfect choice to portray the coy, urbanite lead. She infuses attitude and aloof charisma to an otherwise, very quotidian succession of experiences and interactions. The eclectic looks we’re compiled by genius stylist Debora Giugno, and offset by low maintenance grooming additions from artist Philipp Keusen. As is often the case in life as in art, the devil’s in the details. Enjoy!

‘Cast Away’ features up-and-coming, young stunner Rae Doherty; in an sweetly serene compilation of images by photographer Nat Lanyon. The two take to the seaside and in the late afternoon and seize the opportunity to incorporate some naturally golden light. Model Rae has an unforgettable presence on film, and captivates the lens with minimal effort. The brooding energy of the shots, and the basic nature of the styling, combine to cast a rich palette of highs and lows; nicely framing the distinctive aesthetic of the subject. This series is the latest addition to the The Spring Fling issue of Satiety Paper (#4). There are still a handful of other editorials yet to release; and those will be accompanying this one soon. Enjoy!

There is nothing quite as intoxicating as the supple curves of a womanly body. If you add the face of an angel, you’d have something very close to our sweet Natasha here. Her soft figure is in perfect harmony with the gauzy, dreamlike quality of Marco Michieletto‘s photography. He’s continuously discerning the gentleness within his subjects, and subtly extrapolating on that quality. His eye for beauty, combined with Natasha’s striking femininity, result in an overwhelming delirium of aesthetic pleasure. Enjoy!

As if she were a visionary sculptor of stone, Margherita Loba chips away the layers of pretense that disguise the spirit concealed within her medium. Bringing forth the artistic destiny of her subject, Margherita spins the natural world as reflected in her lens, into the intoxicating portrayal of an idyllic garden of Eden. In the nature of our namesake, this series of images purely satiates the craving for a whimsical daydream. The Romanesque paradise would not be so entirely perfect without the delightful musing of our wood nymphs: models Juliet B. and Sara P. They appear joyfully uninhibited, frolicking and filled to the brim with carefree abandon. The lyrical exposure of nature and skin, life, sunlight and playfulness, make the collection an enchanting spring mirage. It’s a pure pleasure to welcome a new photographic talent to our pool, and a new five star story to our 4th edition. Enjoy!

Our infamous contributor, Pino Leone, shows his aptitude for wielding a spotlight, with his newest editorial, entitled ‘A Discerning Palate’. The studio set employs dramatic contrast and modern style,s to push the envelope of edginess. With the glance felt ’round the world, dazzling beauty Vaida Tamulenaite lights a million torches and captures the readers’ full attention. Donned in fur and feathers, lace and latex, Vaida is at once beguiling and audacious throughout. The arresting nature of the series is undeniable; with much more at hand, than just the provocative essence of a flawless muse. Forward thinking stylist, Simona Sanfedele, compiles a structured yet sensual wardrobe of La Perla, Celyn B., Halaby and Max Bianco, for the piece; blending opposing elements of hard and soft, to balance the drama of the composition. Each look was given a brilliant finish by beauty pro, Giordana Hassan, and fully embodied by our model. It can be very rare to find such an impeccable outcome of composing a fashion story…but when you consider the unlimited promise of all parties involved, it’s hard to imagine anything less. Enjoy!
