New York based photographer Samuli Karala has created an exclusive editorial for Schön! that shows just how many dimensions one idea can have. Originally from a fashion photography background, the artist interprets femininity as a static and stunning culmination of skin, bones and character with strong Romanic influences. The poses themselves appear to cleverly play on the typical brooding poses that can be found all over Rome, with Karala recreating the form making it all the more interesting. The artistically applied splashes of paint across the lips and down the model’s neck create a striking contrast, highlighting the human within the statue.
