Steampunk and gradient backgrounds

RichardTerborg_FeatherHeader1

Ive shot with Rosies Art before. She has an amazing style design style. She makes: Steampunk Clothing and Accesories. Steampunk is a subgenre of science fiction and fantasy. For the large part its inspired by 19th century industrial steam powered machinery. Its setting is a alternative history of the 19th century british victorian era, “wild west” or post apocalyptic. Its hard to explain because a lot of people have a spin or version on their idea on how it should be. And no one is really wrong. Read more on Wikipedia if you like to know more. Ive always kept a close eye on what she produces and one day she posted an awesome collection of “Feathered Headdresses”

I met Viviane many years ago when we were added to a project together as photographer and stylist by a designer friend. The project never launched but we always kept in touch to see what each was doing. So at some point after we few years we both said: “Why don’t we ever shoot???” This started a 30 min brainstorm through Facebook chat. We both wanted something very stylized. She suggested something like a “holy mary”? Then I came in and suggest something darky holy mary. And the idea was born: “The Holy Sinister Mary”.

I couldn’t freaking wait to shoot it.

Like most projects, this one started with a very small and vague idea.
I thought it would be cool to build a set that would be kinda like its own ecosystem: something very moody/foresty/damp.
