Past, Present & Future

Russh Magazine does a double take with an editorial which draws inspiration from the photography of the late great Richard Avedon. Up & coming photographer Elina Kechicheva channels Avedon's classic imagery from the 1995 and 1997 Pirelli Calendars in which the world's most beautiful supermodels posed in classic black and white studio shots alongside an assortment of natural elements and wildlife. Fast-forward to 2013 and Kechicheva trains her lens on the industry's up & coming new faces including Antonina Vasylchenko, Iris Van Berne, Anna Martynova, Anmari Botha, Lin Kjerulf, Kate Bogusharskaia, Agnes Nabuurs, Vika Falileeva, Vika Cecchellero, Gina Bock, and Hedvig Palm for Russh's portfolio of up close & personal portrait shots. Kechicheva harnesses the raw beauty of her subjects with Vasylchenko et al. staring deep into the camera's lens as though baring their souls for all to see. The emotional quality and honesty conveyed between the photographer and the models elevates this editorial to a transcendental level not often seen in today's fashion photography.
