Wall Flowers

Paolo Roversi and a motley crew of modelling's fastest rising stars join forces for an editorial in W Magazine's August 2013 issue. Tilda Lindstam, Kirstin Liljegren, Rosie Tapner, Ashleigh Good, Julier Bugge, and Stina Rapp Wastenson play Wallflowers as they pose against a stark brick and concrete wall backdrop. Modelling's Sensational Six are styled by fashion editor Marie-Amélie Sauvé in finery from the Fall/Winter 2013 collections of Donna Karan, Rag & Bone, Reed Krakoff, Calvin Klein, and Marc Jacobs amongst others. Roversi, ever the master of capturing emotion and mood on film, harnesses the intense youthful vitality of the six models without resorting to jumping, leaping or over the top contrived poses from his subjects. In an interview with the Talks.com, Roversi explains his motivation for taking pictures, "Something needs to touch me, something needs to give me an emotion, something needs to bring me a memory, a dream, to somewhere. When you look it's the same. Photography always starts with a look. You look outside your window and you see something or you're walking down the street and you see a girl and you turn your face. And if you are a photographer you want to go in and you want to discover or you want to be  closer to these things to get this emotion."
