Nueva Era Vuelve la Super Mujer

Adriana Lima takes us back to the age of decadence in two part series by Vincent Peters for Harper’s Bazaar Spain, July 2017. Adriana explores the fire of the female spirit in, Nueva Era Vuelve la Super Mujer, the New Era of the Super Woman. The power of this piece rests in the poetry of the person, as Lima allows her body to become one with her surroundings. Strolling through this palace by the sea, she’s at once enchanted by the rising of the light. Peters presents this story in black/white allowing us to take in the majesty of the moment.

Des paysages lumineux
