To compliment our, already extremely delectable, additions to the Spring Fling issue of Satiety Paper, nothing was more fitting than incorporating another ‘Perfect 10’. The thanks for this gorgeous feature goes to Libertine and Satiety Paper alum, Erik Tranberg. An original and constant source of inspiration since the birth of the Libertine, Erik routinely turns out memorable and heavy hitting imagery; worthy of wallpapering our entire office in the prints! For Satiety Paper #4, Erik requisitioned the up-and-coming Russian sensation, Lada Kravchenko (who has worked with such infamous photographic talents as David Bellemere, Herring + Herring, and Filippo Del Vita – to name a few) as his muse and partner in crime. With her naturally sultry aura and unrelentingly perfect figure, Lada could easily steal a screen of any size; making this collection even more punchy for our paper. Erik surpasses his past triumphs with this new editorial, fit for the likes of Victoria’s Secret. Sleek black leather mixed with modern, structured under-pinnings…miles of smooth skin, tousled hair and a sharp pair of smoky eyes…strike an opulent chord for the story’s undertone. The results of this partnership are quite positively…picture perfect. Enjoy!

‘Mirage’ by Erik Tranberg is a positively breath-taking masterpiece in photography; shot on el Mirage Salt Flats of California . The series stars lanky young model Macy Nicole; who strikes us as a virtual doppelganger of the infamous and acclaimed, international supermodel, Daria Werbowy. With her piercing gaze and the fluidity of her physical presentation, Macy leaves the middle of the pack far behind, and crafts a memorable identity for herself in her own right. Throughout the years, Erik has been a repeat contributor to the collection on the Libertine…and now we gladly welcome the dawn of his new style on Satiety Paper. The high contrast black and whites, the dazzling lighting of the high afternoon sun and the dusty glisten of our model’s bronzed skin, all work in unison to create an explosive editorial that burns deep into the retinas of the readers. This kind of story is of such an unequaled quality, that we will run off some large prints to adorn our personal work spaces, and thus inspire elevated creativity. We also consider the images to be the epitome of sexless nudity (as sensual as they are, sex is not the focus…beauty and emotion are the focus) lacking vulgarity. The dramatic portraits raise the echelon of our entire publication, and we are humbled tho present you with this exclusive. Enjoy!
