 There’s a mysterious tone to this photograph.

Despite its crisp resolution, the composition and palette have given the photograph a painterly quality. Captured by a painter, that is not very surprising.

The photograph features Kirsten Owen, Canadian model, and after nearly 20 years a burgeoning icon in the modelling industry. Her unique look catapulted her to the pages and covers of every major editorial magazine in the 90s, and now nearly 20 years later her career is seeing an influx of work in the high fashion industry; much like Kristen McMenamy (another 90s Model Queen) who graces runways and editorials with a fierce mature edge

Just a little summertime sadness to kick off the day….

Until we meet again,
