Model and photographer create visual bliss in ‘The Spirit of Nature’, featuring model Dasha Vikhreva and Barcelona-based photographer & director Julio Bárcena, In a poignant but practical sign of the times, Julio updates clients about taking small steps out of confinement in Barcelona, beginning May 11. A photographic production set can go into creative execution, within the guidelines of established “safe working conditions.” We wish him well.
Meanwhile, Barcena’s glorious fashion story, styled by Miguel Angel Ruiz for Harper’s Bazaar Mexico and Latin America May 2020 offers a momentary visual respite. These gorgeous images remind us that nothing can be taken for granted anymore. Not the power and beauty of nature, or the place of humans in it. Reality is suddenly very fragile, a message channeled perfectly and forcefully by Dasha Vikhreva. / Hair & makeup Rafit Noy; editor Gonzalo Zumalacarregui.
Elle Macpherson has been famous for a very long time. A model for four decades and counting, she holds the record of five cover appearances for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue, has acted in films and television (including Friends), hosted and produced television shows and made millions in business. She is a household name here and overseas, yet over the years she has managed to remain inscrutable—mysterious, even.
