Rafael Rojas | Timeless

“In a digitally oriented world, I want to honour more than ever the existence, presence and permanence of the photography art book. I endeavour to create books with soul that delight all senses and are destined to be collected, enjoyed and cherished for many generations to come”

Hasselblad Master (Wildlife, 2014) Rafael Rojas explains the creation of ‘Timeless’, a photography monograph awarded as Best Fine Art Photography Book 2016 in the last IPA International Photography Awards and with a Silver Medal as Best Monograph 2016 at the Px3 Prix de Photographie de Paris.

Emily & Sasha Go On a Boho Trip

Emily Ratajkowski & Sasha Pivovarova Go On a Boho Trip in TwinSet’s Spring 2017 Campaign
Top models Emily Ratajkowski and Sasha Pivovarova link up for the spring-summer 2017 campaign from TwinSet. The Italian label take a trip by the sea in images captured by Giampaolo Sgura. In a 4×4 car, the girls wear bohemian inspired looks including maxi dresses, crochet tunics and embellished jackets. In addition to the print advertisements, TwinSet also released an official campaign video. Set to a rock and roll soundtrack, the girls take selfies in the windswept setting.
