‘Seed To Blossom’ | EXCLUSIVE | Vladimira O’Farrow By Natalia Horinkova For The Libertine | The Spring Fling 2014

'Seed To Blossom' . Vladimira O'Farrow By Natalia Horinkova For The Libertine Magazine. The Spring Fling 2014. Cover. 2

“I choose to risk my significance…to live so that which came to me as seed, goes to the next as blossom…”(Dawna Markova).

Our newest publication, ‘Seed To Blossom’, is an exclusive original from Slovakian photographer Natalia Horinkova. Living and working today in sunny Sydney, Natalia has been pursuing unique photography since she first picked up a camera in Dubai, years ago. In discussing her career, Natalia asserts “I love all pretty things, in any form; and I live to tell a wordless story with my editorials. I prefer natural light, but love playing and experimenting around the studio, while still developing my craft and style”. This series stars classic beauty, Vladimira O’Farrow (who is also a small screen natural, in the most recent Kid Cudi video) poses in striking, basic black pieces and vintage curls for a soft feminine appeal. With subtle makeup by artist Lubica Krajnakova and grooming by stylist Dominicc Mikulcak (@ Alterna), Vladimira is both enchanting and distinctive. The composition of these shots is sharp, clean and unusually ‘pretty’ for our often edgy collection…making it the perfect accentuation. Enjoy!

‘Style Is Eternal’ |EXCLUSIVE | Natalia Bieganska By Paolo Santambrogio For The Libertine | The Spring Fling 2014

'Style Is Eternal'. EXCLUSIVE . Natalia Bieganska By Paolo Santambrogio For The Libertine . The Spring Fling 2014. Cover. 92

‘Style Is Eternal’, comprises our latest studio series in our Spring Fling Collection. While many artists have mastered the fine details of shooting on location….it can be much more involved to create a dynamic editorial when shooting only one face (and against a bare wall at that). Opinions at the Libertine have been overwhelmingly adulatory since the moment we laid eyes on the gorgeous composition of these images. The unforgettable Natalia Bieganska simply stupefies with her smoldering command of the lens; and visual mastermind, Paolo Santambrogio, relentlessly pursues her ardor without a single misstep. Sophisticated basics we’re selected to complement the clean composure of the story, by cutting edge fashion oracle Alessandro Buzzi; with clean grooming enhancements, resulting from the collaboration of the extremely precise Marco Minunno (hair) and Seiko Nishigori (beauty). We couldn’t be more thrilled to reveal this latest augmentation to our blooming publication! 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?

Etoday.ru is for my breakfast ritual, like newspaper, but about fashion shoots. I read Style.com 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…

Life

What are you still learning?

Everything.

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.
