For this photoshoot, I had in mind the works of Benjamin Lacombe and Madeline von Foerster. I wanted to achieve a painterly feel to them, so I set the lighting to window light only. The red rose has had many symbolic meanings through out the history of man kind, in the photos of this photoshoot, the meaning is sacrifice, many other interpretations are open though. The title of this editorial is "Les vieilles croyances sous le soleil" or "The old beliefs under the sun". There are shades of a few in the photos.
