It’s been a wild ride these past few months with the Launch of Breed Magazine. but we’re back with the Shot of the Month! I chose Tasos Anestis photograph because of so many reasons! For one, the colors are dark, rich and really depict the other-worldly feeling of this. I also commend Tasos for the use of the location. I’m not sure if this is a set he built or if this is an actual location with used books but it’s an incredible use of the environment. The casting is perfect, the girl is the perfect model for this type of moody shot, her hair and makeup is spot on for this kind of “school girl, dreamy” photograph. I’m not sure if Tasos intentionally had her hold an Erica Jong novel but the truth is, Erica Jong was a huge influence on me when I was still a teenager. The model’s girl-like dress with the lace collar and her freckles represent an innocence. But then there’s the little hit of fishnet stockings which contradicts any naivety. Her pose with her eyes closed depict her dreaming and emersed in the world she is reading about. It has very sensual overtones without it be blatant and blaring like so many photographers do in their photography. It has so many hidden clues, it’s a photograph that makes you want to know more which, to me, is always a successful photograph!
