PDN Photo of the Day

A Dynamic Duo in Black-and-White

For a shoot for Los Angeles-based fashion and art magazine, Jimon, Luzena Adams photographed Next models Myf Shepherd and Maria Flavia in black-and-white. When it comes to editorial shoots, Adams plays the role of both photographer and art director. Adams wanted to do something “dynamic” for this story for Jimon’s Fall/Winter 2014 issue, and also go back to her roots in analogue photography. “When I first picked up a camera and discovered the darkroom, I only ever shot in black-and-white,” Adams told PDN via email. “There is something romantic and mysterious about it. [Black-and-white] also brings out the details in the knits and textiles.” It was also Adams’ idea to pair two models together. “For this shoot, I [was] also fascinated with the idea of twins and how we begin to become mirrors of those who we are close to in our lives.”
