Naomi Campbell & Alex Kovas by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott
Interview Magazine 2010
I didn't want to post this at first for some reason, and I didn't know why. It's kinda growing on me now though. I think it's because Naomi's styling looks redundant, and I wish the male model had some kind of wardrobe in some if the pictures.
But I have a soft spot for this blue scale, steven klein-esque photography. And I love Naomi, so...
Some brilliant photos taken by Phyllis Galembo.
The photographs are taken from 2005 to 2006 and reflect the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerade in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa. These portraits of masqueraders build on Galembo’s work of the past twenty years photographing the rituals and religious culture in Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti.
