Wicked Dames


I was honored to work on this awesome retro series, entitled Wicked Dames, with photographer Vlad Voloshin. Inspired by the film "Sin City", as well as 1940's film noir, Vlad created, produced, art directed and sometimes even styled this project. His vast knowledge of 1930's-40's fashion and lighting techniques contributed to the impeccable execution of Wicked Dames. I re-created the classic glamour makeup looks on these two shoots and Michelle Grimm mastered the intricate retro hair styles for the entire series! Vlad has received a good deal of press on Wicked Dames, including a finalist spot in American Photo magazine's 'Image of the Year', and this recent video clip in L'espresso magazine (The Italian equivalent of The New York Times). Check out the complete series and listen to the lovely Italian commentary here:
