Mystique. A back shot seemed to present a good solution
for for photographing this Gianfranco Ferré design
bikini (just because there's no top to go along doesn't
make this any less a bikini, does it?).
photographer, Herb Ritts did a similar shot for a
Ferré ad which ran on the back cover of the same
issue of Italian Bazaar, in which this
I would suggest
that Ritts' style is an "intellectual" approach which
uses strong contrast in light, and a somewhat abstracted
shape, as compared to mine which I consider more
predictable, and sensual.
if you would like to see both photos compared.
