'Leave Me Breathless'. Hannah By Craig Stuart Eisenberg For Satiety Paper #3. The Winter Weeks. Cover 1Looking towards the hypnotizing reflection of your image in glass. you see through yourself. You turn ever so slightly to glimpse yourself from an unfamiliar angle…and as you look long, you see your deepest truths revealed. To share this moment with someone, would be to expose your secrets in all transparency to the intimacy of the moment. You cannot help but wonder…through the air of solitude… is somebody watching from a darkened windows? Might your eyes lock on an inquisitive gaze looking back. In the reverence of the moment, you cannot help but fantasize as to how one fleeting glance may stop your heart and leave you breathless.

Thus is the nature and conceptualization of this stirring new piece; conjured by the lens of Satiety Paper veteran, Craig Stuart Eisenberg. Craig focuses his lens on the vulnerable beauty of model Hannah Kirkelie. Her disarming transparency sets the tone for a voyeuristic glimpse into her journey of discovering the self. Stealing a precious instant of intimacy with our subject, lends a sense of exclusivity to the series…and allows the audience to get lost a long side her. Come over to Satiety Paper and savor the complete series HERE. Enjoy!

'Day of Rest' . EXCLUSIVE.  Joanne By Malcolm McGettigan For Satiety Paper #2. The Fall Flight 2014. Cover 4We 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.

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.

SNEAK PEEK: ‘Paris Confidential’ | Polina Malanova And Vika Rin By Lev Efimov For Satiety Paper #2 | The Fall Flight 2014

'Paris Confidential'. by Lev Efimov For Satiety Paper #2 . The Fall Flight 2014. Cover 8‘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!

SNEAK PEAK: ‘Mirage’ | Macy Nicole By Erik Tranberg For Satiety Paper #1 | The Summer Session 2014

Fashion Editorial. 'Mirage' .Macy Nicole By Erik Tranberg For Satiety Paper Issue #1 . The Summer Session 2014. Exclusive. Cover. 7‘Mirage’ by Erik Tranberg is a positively breath-taking masterpiece in photography; shot on el Mirage Salt Flats of California . The series stars lanky young model Macy Nicole; who strikes us as a virtual doppelganger of the infamous and acclaimed, international supermodel, Daria Werbowy. With her piercing gaze and the fluidity of her physical presentation, Macy leaves the middle of the pack far behind, and crafts a memorable identity for herself in her own right. Throughout the years, Erik has been a repeat contributor to the collection on the Libertine…and now we gladly welcome the dawn of his new style on Satiety Paper. The high contrast black and whites, the dazzling lighting of the high afternoon sun and the dusty glisten of our model’s bronzed skin, all work in unison to create an explosive editorial that burns deep into the retinas of the readers. This kind of story is of such an unequaled quality, that we will run off some large prints to adorn our personal work spaces, and thus inspire elevated creativity. We also consider the images to be the epitome of sexless nudity (as sensual as they are, sex is not the focus…beauty and emotion are the focus) lacking vulgarity. The dramatic portraits raise the echelon of our entire publication, and we are humbled tho present you with this exclusive. Come view the entire series of beautiful images from this story and others, over at Satiety Paper. Enjoy!
