“I want a soul mate who can sit me down, shut me up, tell me ten things I don’t already know, and make me laugh. I don’t care what you look like, just turn me on. And if you can do that, I will follow you on bloody stumps through the snow. I will nibble your mukluks with my own teeth. I will do your windows. I will care about your feelings. Just have something in there.”
― Henry Rollins
Mile long legs stretched delicately across a thousand threads of Egyptian cotton, lanky stunner Carleen Laronn tosses a tumbling cascade of chestnut locks over one shoulder. Punctuated by the dazzling gleam of an intricate bauble, her long neck line bends elegantly away from the daring plunge of a balconette. Through smokey eyes, Carleen smiles coyly into the frame of photographer Dana Pennington. In every direction, opulence accents the setting. Flanked by an indulgent oasis of classic glamor, our model is pinned up in (and stripped down to) frothy lace, strapping elastic and sky high stilettos. With champagne chilling on ice, pleasure was paramount in the creation of this sultry series; which is an aspect, reflected effortlessly throughout the images. The artist finesses a familiar rapport with his subject; and in doing so, he captures so much more within his creation, than just Carleen’s enviable aesthetic. Exclusively for Satiety Paper #4…we are not the only ones ‘Courting Desire’. Follow the smoke signals HERE. Enjoy!
‘Boudoir’, by our long time favorite Adolfo Valente, completes the final additions to our smouldering Winter edition (#3) of Satiety Paper. The editorial, starring extraordinary, dusky stunner, Mihaela Rusu , is a blends a smooth balance of expert artistry and feminine wiles. Not only does Adolfo capture a sweet tenderness within his models…he has a keen eye for casting uniquely beguiling beauties as well.

The model-focused composition and natural lighting harmonize with those dynamics and result in a lovely whimsicality. Mihaela manages to lend complex energies to the images, while exuding complete confidence and candor. The story makes us want to curl up on and overcast day with some poetry, a good wine and tender friend. Come see the series HERE and, enjoy!
Emanuele Cassina has created some of the most popular editorial exclusives the we have ever run in Satiety Paper. As an artist, she outdoes herself every time, by returning with renewed iterations of the delicate and pure sensuality that effortlessly bloom from an immaculate flower. Her subject, Bianca Effy, is nothing if not tender and alluring. The way she yields for the lens, is entrancing and yet gentle…with a certain fragility. Perhaps it’s the ease of the unspoken woman-to-woman commonality, or perhaps it’s the Italian adoration and idolatry of the female form, but Emanuele turns out dynamic and whimsical work, like she was born to do it. Inspired by the light and shadows of Caravaggio’s classical works, ‘Variazioni Di Tema’ breathes life into an ethereal fantasy realm that transports the viewer from reality to something more divine.
