‘Mystic River’ | EXCLUSIVE | Georgia Martin By Jason Mark Harris For The Libertine | The Spring Fling 2014

 'Mystic River' . Georgia Martin By Jason Mark Harris  For The Libertine. The Spring Fling 2014. Cover.2

We couldn’t be more excited to release our next story in the Spring Fling series; ‘Mystic River’. The editorial was shot by Libertine darling, Jason Mark Harris as a tribute to the reawakening spirit of nature in the spring. Jason cast Storm model, Georgia Martin to portray the flaxen-haired apparition of innocence in the sweet story. Clothed in ensembles composed by Gemma (from With Love Betty), she wafts delicately by the waters edge like a slender reed, bending and blowing in the breezes. As in the words of Williams Wordsworth ” O joy! that in our embers,  is something that doth live… That nature yet remembers, what was once so fugitive…”(Imitations of Immortality). Style and beauty, grace and purity are defined anew in this lovely compilation of light, ethereal images. Enjoy!

Interview with the Artist

Where is your home?

I live in Moscow. It’s very much like NY; a good balance of living and working.

How did you get into photography?

It wasn’t my dream originally. I got in to it by chance. At the beginning of my exploration, I didn’t really like the results. Things have come so far, that these days, I’m content and focused on creating every picture.

Did you go to school to study photography?

I didn’t attend a speciallty school; however, school is where I learned how to use a camera. Later in life, my husband taught me bout using studio lighting.

What are some other hobbies?

Currently, I am studying art history. I find it extremely interesting. The education includes much more than the history of arts only, it is really one history of the world. Recently, I’ve become fond of weight lifting!!! Besides being good for muscles and overall health, it makes my long trips with heavy photo equipment bags easier.

How long have you been a photographer?

4 years..

How would you describe your style?

My background has been mostly taking beauty portraiture. I work almost exclusively in studios, and I like to feature porcelain, shining skin. Some of my new fashion work displays another style; in new work, I like to show not only a beautiful model, but a beautiful landscape too.

What type of cameras do you shoot with?

It is always Nikon for me. I used to shoot on a D40, with a d90 for practicing and studying the artistry. For a long time after that, I worked with a d700. These days, I pack a Df and Nikon D700. It is always digital cameras for me…I don`t like to work with film (although, I do like how it looks).

If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?

50mm (it can do everything) but I like 105mm too!!

A favorite website and/or blog you visit often? is for my breakfast ritual, like newspaper, but about fashion shoots. I read and frequently turn to Google!

Dream person/thing to photograph?

My husband. But it’s an unrealistic aspiration. He doesn’t like having his photo taken and he never has, ha. So, if I can’t shoot my husband, I would settle for Leonardo DiCaprio.

I’ve learned the most from…


What are you still learning?


Where you’ll find me on a Friday night at 9 p.m…

So many different variations and possibilities…a bar, chill-out or another meeting spot…however, I think at home entertaining friends is the most likely.

Your favorite film (movie) of all time?

Head in the clouds

Which five words would your friends use to describe you?

Very strange, very-very strange.

And the last question; if you had one wish…

Oh no! have so many wishes…maybe: self-evolution.


Your Baby Ain’t Sweet Like Mine

My Love… There was/is nothing before you; and now there is only forward. Happy Valentine’s day!

‘Shape’ | EXCLUSIVE | Milena By Anna Daki For The Libertine | The Fall Flight 2013

'Shape'. Milena By Anna Daki For The Libertine . The Fall Flight 2013. 6

It is an honor to introduce a striking new editorial by renowned photographer Anna Daki. The story ‘Shape’ presents a clean, modern innovation in studio photography; that elegantly showcases the shifting architecture and  soft geography of the human body. As a veteran of the lens, Anna (who has previously published work in Harper’s Bazaar, Elle Germany, Flair Magazine and more) intuitively perceives every miniscule shift in her models demeanor, and imparts them beautifully to the reader. The subject, exotic beauty: Milena, is a breath-taking, artistic study in anatomy. The series creates a gorgeous and polarizing contrasts of positive and negative space with each interpretation of her form. Makeup artist, Henrike Christians, applied the impeccable finishing touches, with simple, minimalist grooming; boasts the allure of the  model’s bare beauty. Flawless. Enjoy!
