Iris has missed photographing black models so Iris took the opportunity to photograph Princess Rama for her new beauty project. The philosophy of Iris’ project is to capture a woman’s strength in beauty in her beautiful portraits.
Peter traveled to Paris to shoot a campaign for advertising agency Publicis Conseil using models Rouge@Elite and Cuivree@Elite. Hair styling by Stephane Lancien@Calliste and make up by Catherine Dargenton@Agence Aurelien.
Being a strong feminist, Iris is interested in making images of women which are not stereotyped. The fashion and adverting industry gives lots of limits to woman appearance and existence. In her personal work, she tries to give space to each woman with different shapes and background to be able to exist and be desirable.
This shoot is from the TV show ‘Austria’s Next Top Model’ and was aired this February. We uploaded a teaser of this shoot last month. Iris shot these beautiful photos underwater using some underwater housing and tube to help breath while taking them.
