“Lucy Hilmer photographs herself every year on her birthday, April 22nd, wearing nothing but her white Lollipop underpants, shoes and socks. She’s been doing this for 40 years, since her 29th birthday. In 2015, she will be 70…revealing how a woman who came of age before women’s lib used her camera to peel off society’s “pretty girl ” label and define herself from the inside out.” – Quoted from Lucyhilmer.com

As if she were a visionary sculptor of stone, Margherita Loba chips away the layers of pretense that disguise the spirit concealed within her medium. Bringing forth the artistic destiny of her subject, Margherita spins the natural world as reflected in her lens, into the intoxicating portrayal of an idyllic garden of Eden. In the nature of our namesake, this series of images purely satiates the craving for a whimsical daydream. The Romanesque paradise would not be so entirely perfect without the delightful musing of our wood nymphs: models Juliet B. and Sara P. They appear joyfully uninhibited, frolicking and filled to the brim with carefree abandon. The lyrical exposure of nature and skin, life, sunlight and playfulness, make the collection an enchanting spring mirage. It’s a pure pleasure to welcome a new photographic talent to our pool, and a new five star story to our 4th edition. You can see the rest of the stunning images HERE. Enjoy!
