Abul Akol by Mariah Jelena


This shoot is truly an inspiration of mines for many reasons. 1. I think shooting a model in or by water is hard work because water reflects in a harsh/ funny way. 2. To have the photograph heavily contrast is another great skill because the water can model can end up unflattering. 3. It’s not everyday a African American model has a very powerful shoot by herself with no-one but her. 4. To have so much make up added on the model and it’s remain stunning is always a great plus. 5. The model movement in the corner of the pool is amazing! Purely creative.
