Satiety Paper welcomes this new collectors piece by photographic genius David Cohen De Lara; to enhance our already stellar set of incredible editorials in The Summer Session. Tess de Vries,Nika Daalderop and Kim Jaspers star stud this studio pictorial, in structured androgynous ensembles, which perfectly offset the delicate and feminine beauty of David’s latest muses.

We can never say enough about David’s work…which is always unique, always timeless and always spot on. As for personal taste, this is one of our favorite (and finest) stories.

For the exciting release of our new publication, the former team of discerning eyes over at The Libertine has been scouting far and wide for exceptional new talents.

We bring you his latest incredible editorial, ‘Birds of a Feather’, as the most recent addition to our issue #1 collection. The series stars models Katarina Nemcova, Larissa Mascarenhas, Masha Baziuk, and Nicola Minarikova; as they spend a day whimsically musing between layers of fresh, clean cotton. Join us in savoring these intimate portraits…which evoke the experience of falling in love with a beautiful woman…or 4.

First time contributor Brian Morris joins the Libertine’s roster with his bang-up editorial: ‘East Of Eden’. The story, which stars Brian’s arduous Muse, was lensed beneath the bright flare of the Californian sun; eliciting our hair-trigger yearning for summer here at Satiety Paper. With our Summer series beginning it’s anticipated release, the timing for this editorial couldn’t be better. The series, which frames the Muse’s natural beauty against the beauty of natural landscapes, is vaguely reminiscent of the fabulous Jamie Nelson’s mastery of lighting and color. We eagerly invite you to experience these two phenomenal new talents. Come and view the entire series of beautiful images now, over at Satiety Paper, when you purchase your annual subscription.

I (photographer Nick Sushkevich) was born in Omsk, a major defense industry center during the Soviet Era. I studied computer science and Commercial Law. During those years I was interested in computer graphics an 3D. In the late 90’s I was hired to a professional advertising and design studio in my hometown. It was great learning stuff and connecting with folks from around the globe. I even tried myself as a school teacher for CGI classes! Then in 2006 I moved to Moscow where I was doing photography in my free time. In 2010, with the help of my friend Lev Efimov, I met Ulyana Sergeenko who was pursuing her photographer career and assembling her team; I start as a retoucher there…and here I am now.
Where is home?
Anywhere I rent an apartment.
Did you go to school to study photography?
No, never. Unfortunately there wasn’t, and still isn’t, any school to study photography in Russia.
How long have you been a photographer?
Professionally – about 7 years.
How would you describe your style?
I can’t describe my work as having a certain style…it’s just the way I like to shoot. I choose the easiest ways of lighting the scene; so perhaps you could define it as a lazy style photography!
What type of cameras do you shoot with?
Mostly I use digital cameras. Sometimes I take pictures with film and instant cameras.
If you had to choose one lens which one would it be and why?
If I had to chose one lens, I’d prefer 35mm because it’s a pretty useful wide angle lens and I can crop the frame later to highlight the main object.
I’ve learned the most from…
What are you still learning?
Your favorite film (movie) of all time?
I guess, “Traffic” or “Silence of the lambs”.
And the last question: If you had one wish, what would it be?!
My own studio in Paris and NY (with access to the roof )
The Libertine welcomes fabulous first time contributor Nick Sushkevich. Nick, who has worked in fashion for years (most notably for Ulyana Sergeenko) has created an incredible studio editorial to feature the dramatic attributes of young siren, Liza Sotnikova. The series contains so many striking and memorable images, that the Libertine will be releasing it in two parts for our Spring Fling series! With the second half of this story, there will be an accompanying interview with the photographer himself; regarding the journey of his career into fashion photography, as well as updates on some of the exciting opportunities on his horizon. Part one of ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ captures the smoldering sensuality of our whimsical muse, with simplistic styling and lavish embellishments. This collection is one of our personal favorites of the season…hence why we are dedicating two features to it! The dynamic Voguesque perfection of the images is virtually overwhelming. Stay tuned for the second installment, and…Enjoy!
Photographer Stefano Fabbri works with an incredibly precise team of seasoned pros to create a dynamic studio series of fierce, modern flexion. Model Caroline Kristiansen morphs from soft curves to sharp angles with subtle shifts of energy and closely conforming wardrobe ensembles. ‘In The Cut’ features grooming adaptations by editorial artist Serena Congiu. The combination of sharp contrasts, low maintenance beauty and alluring active wear, produce a pure fluidity of motion throughout the images. Stefano, assisted by Pietro Frizzi, intimated with beautiful proclivity for sensual portraits, the mercurial nature of the female muse in her relation to inspiring the artist. The Libertine has the pleasure of exclusively sharing this shoot with you, as part of our fall flight series…enjoy!
Hypnotizing beauties Ugnė Sabalytė and Amalie Loendal tear it up in some very creative denim ensembles, created by Stylist Waina Chancy for our latest editorial ‘Still Torn Up About It’. The story is a smokin’ combination of classic and edgy. That balance can be very hard to strike, but the lens master, Tawfick Espriella, managed to manifest quite an visually pleasing reality! The clean studio environment is a flattering palette for these two youthful beauties to shine. Their warm skin glows against the bright white and brilliant blues. Makeup artist Lauren Massaro worked with the girls to craft care free grooming that communicates ‘natural stunner’ with effortless purity! The Libertine has the pleasure of releasing this fierce series as one of the last few in our fabulous Fall Flight series. The story was both shot on film and captured digitally, and thus, will be releases in a two part series. Distinct and ingenius, both…Enjoy!
Photographer Kyle Deleu (assisted by Sharon Zobali) returns to The Libertine with another smokin’ exclusive. ‘We’ll Never Be Royals’ is a youthfully rebellious editorial, featuring fierce new face Britt Linn Vee. The looks were composed and styled by Nandi K. to complement the rock-and-roll grooming looks created by artist Pam Vanika. This series encourages experimentation with fashion as a mode of self expression. Britt takes no prisoners and makes no apologies, in this edgy new mix for our Fall Flight series. This season, it’s going to be all about making a statement…so dare to bare, or dare to tare…just DARE! Enjoy!
This exquisite editorial, ‘Forgotten Ancestors’, was composed exclusively for The Libertine, as a collaboration between visionary photographer Dusan Jaukovic and couture designer Jelena Malesevic (for her personal line: Morfium Couture). The shots are purely transcendental, and model Li Xiao Xing becomes every bit the beautiful embodiment of the designs. Bold and alluring designs complement Li’s finely sculpted features and the natural beauty of one of the longest enduring sanctuaries inhabited by the Lenape people before colonization. There is a subtle mysticism to the surroundings, that is echoed in both Jelena’s creations and Li’s powerful aura. Though this story is both light and fresh, reminiscent of the longer days of summer, it felt like a perfect balancing element for our fall flight series. Not to mention, that the images are breath-taking. Enjoy!
The Libertine has the tremendous pleasure of collaborating again with master photographer, Adolfo Valente on a new sensual masterpiece entitled ‘Comely, Tender’. The glowing and ethereal editorial depicts delicate Italian beauty, Daiana Di Finizio in the sweet bloom of life. Hazy, shadowed rooms and golden morning rays cast intrigue and subtle dreaminess to the portraiture. Her gaze echos throughout the series and lingers with you after. Reminiscent of the iconic beauty of Ali MacGraw, Daiana is purely enchanting. This is another memorable series, and a perfect compliment to our already heavy-hitting Fall Flight series!
It’s very exciting for us that these beautiful images will also be featured QG Italia.com; as they will be doing a spotlight on the artist, along with an interview, and showcasing some more of his intoxicating work. Enjoy!
