The breeze tickles the alders,
fracturing the sky in to a million glass shards of daydream.
And I breathe in forever…
The moment your mind stops time:
the bullets freeze in the air, and fall
the needle dull kisses your skin,
(eternally poised to pierce)
the razors, the knives…
They lay on their sides
and wink back at your blinding light.
You become sound
You wield the sword that splits the worlds;
Nothing can touch you.
Nothing can have you.
You half yourself, by your own calculations…
and go everywhere
And there I’ll be waiting…
We bring you a soft and sweet new story from the portfolio of photographer Malcolm McGettigan. ‘A Day of Rest’ peeks in on charming beauty, Joanne, as she goes about accomplishing small, daily labors of love with ease and care. The editorial mainlines intimate energy (paramount over flesh or sexuality) but in no way stops short of the bewitchingly, guileless nudity we adore here at the paper. As the most recent contribution to our second issue of Satiety, Malcolm’s piece lends a lighter touch to some of the more dramatic tones of our collection; striking a harmony that we so strive to create. It’s lovely to spend the day (albeit, in just a few moments) with this delicate enchantress and the artist who captures his perfect vision of her beauty. Get swept up in the daydream HERE. Enjoy!
We’re loving this fun fashion piece by NY photographer Mae Richards. Featuring exotic beauty Ting Gong (@ Ford Models), the editorial combines eclectic styling and sophisticated beauty resulting in real modern mastery. Mae, who has previously contributed portraiture to The Libertine’s collection, returns to us with an ever evolving personal signature of artistic composition and classic story telling. Her collaboration with Ting is no exception! The model has a unique way of infusing intrigue into the images; with a girlish simplicity that offsets her equally mysterious aura. From some angle she appears frank and transparent, while in other moments she embodies an impenetrably icy exterior. The coalescence is positively electric. Check out the rest of the story HERE, at Satiety Paper. Enjoy!
Welcome to the classic sparkle of the ‘Gaslight Lovers'; our newest addition to the Fall Flight series…and contribution from photographer Garrett Williams. Starring breakout fashion icons, Sam Perry and Thomas Vollmar, the series portrays a clandestine liaison between a racy young stunner and her mysterious, would-be suitor. Electric from the first glance, this tryst is set against a scene that harkens back to such a time when illicit affairs only rendezvoused behind closed doors. or lurking in the shadows of dark corners. The period-particulars were constructed by the style master Jamie Gorden, to echo the enduring style of a more romantic era. Both male and female models received sleek coiffure from artist Lorene Herrera. The final product of this collaboration is a deliciously voyeuristic story of seduction and indulgence. Make sure to get a look at all the great images (HERE). Enjoy!
‘Paris Confidential’ comes to us from groundbreaking mastermind Lev Efimov! A long time favorite over at The Libertine, Lev has provided stylistic inspiration for our work, going back several years (see some of the blog post that have featured his creations HERE). As his trademark, conceptual innovations develop, Lev continues to hone his discerning eye for gorgeous composition and flawless imagery. As one of our most apprised submission to date, this editorial simply slays, with its coquettish overtones, vivacious revelry and unabashed eroticism. Models Polina Malanova and Vika Rin are a vision of sultry perfection; bound and strapped into delicate but daring adornments composed of everything from the most delicate, frothy lace textures to staunch leather and rope fastenings selected by stylist Denis Chechkov. The final accents were contributed by Beauty Pro Ernest Muntaniol to soften and sizzle against the girls’ pretty palettes. It takes true brilliance to (so beautiful) marry playful innocence and smoldering sexuality to the degree that this artist recurrently achieves. This attribute, as much as any of the multitude in his wheelhouse, keeps us coming back for Lev time after time. Once you discover the delectable quality of his creations…it’s impossible to get enough. It’s a huge honor to endorse his artistic contributions here on Satiety Paper; and we have no doubt that the viewers will not soon forget his name. You can see more saucy shots from this one of a kind exclusive HERE. Enjoy!
“Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.” – Maya Angelou. Charming, exquisite and alluring all at once; this editorial hinges somewhere between life’s playful pleasures and the quieter moments of retiring reminiscence. Photographer Evgeniya Boyarskaya has staged the lavish surroundings, in which our budding heroine can retire to her own company and revel in the sensual pleasures of her blossoming femininity. The moment that a girl transitions into a woman, is perhaps the most bewitching scene of her entire story…and this flourishing young vision gives us an intimate peek into that precious period of discovery. The series (somewhat reminiscent of the timeless Victoria’s Secret series of the infamous Russel James) presents a true fantasy realm in which the viewer can immerse oneself. With ‘barely there’, elegant grooming accents…the entire story was styled by the model herself, in order to enhance the air of ease throughout. We just love including another repeating contributor; donating this perfectly pretty piece in our collection…View our complete series HERE. Enjoy!
