Inoubliable Model Army Exclusive - A Certain Solitude

Before returning to Sydney's shores, I collaborated on a test shoot in Berlin with an incredible new model Jenny Monteiro, whom I discovered a few months earlier in a local cafe. Nineteen year old Monteiro's classically beautiful features, petite 172 cm frame, green eyes flecked with gold, and delicious caramel skin proved to be a compelling proposition for Spanish photographer Alicia Carrera. Monteiro, who is a biracial mix of Mozambican and German, posed for Carrera in freezing minus 7 degrees temperatures at various landmarks around Berlin's city centre. A recurrent theme in Carrera's photography is the relationship between the immense natural environment and the individual, with a sweet solitude being omnipresent. Carrera's photographic works have been published in publications including If you Leave, Collarbone Magazine, DXI, and in an exhibit entitled 'We are Glass'. Currently in her final year of high school, Monteiro possesses a natural modelling ability and a soulful beauty that emanates through the camera's lens. Carrera says of her new muse, "Clearly Jenny is a spectacular looking girl but she has that little something extra - a wonderful personality, an incredible work ethic, and mesmerising features that you don't get to see every day."
