In this shoot for the July issue of Soup, Nadine Strittmatter plays an actress captured behind the scenes on the streets of Cuba. It´s a sensually gritty spread. The goal of the photographer Steven Lyon was wanting to do an effort to show the not so glamorous parts about the showbusiness. To add an extra tough touch to the shots, her make up was very dark with smokey (smudged) eyes.
I like this editoral so much cause it is edgy and tough, but still the shots stay elegant and they all celebrate femininity to the fullest, but in a more realistic way. Still, Nadine delivers angsty glamour shot by shot. And with Lyon who is known for his strong, cinematic imagery, this shoot almost couldn't go wrong.
