British photographer Peter M. Ferguson and model Holly, aka Ivory Flame, have combined their talents for an elegant Bride of Frankenstein-inspired photoshoot.
This most minimalist of interpretations required nothing but a graceful model posed against a stark white background, a touch of bluish makeup, and a couple of yards of very loose bandages. Even the classic, towering Bride hairdo is done away with. The model, serendipitously, is a redhead, as was Elsa Lanchester, and she wears her short hair swept back, with the lightning highlights barely suggested. It all works beautifully.
Ms. Holly has posted a handful of shots on her blog, Ivory Underworld, and there are a couple more to see on Ferguson’s Pure Storm page. There’s also a photo of the Bride’s makeup being applied on makeup artist Michelle Court’s site.
Photos are mildly NSFW.
