Lara Jade Photography
By Chadwick Tyler
Chadwick's assistant, Delilah, was lovely enough to send over some pictures from a story he shot for GREY Magazine, featuring Constance Jablonski and styled by Valentina Illardi Martin.
"The series is gentle, yet edgy, exploring the often delicate boundary between feminine innocence and monstrosity. Constance embraces a role that is at once playful, dark, and even grotesque, intertwining the gracefulness and exploratory nature of youth with a piercing glare that suggests something far more ominous. The shoot draws upon Contance’s versatility and her willingness to defy conventions. The series also fuses seamlessly with Chadwick’s personal style, embracing bodily contortion and avant garde composition, while highlighting the destructive nature of beauty. The styling follows the same juxtapositions visible in Contance’s poses, contrasting the effervescence of light, flowing fabrics with Contance’s biting, yet vulnerable stare."
The last shot is my favourite.
I love how the entire series is at once fierce and delicate.
In April last year, I blogged about Chadwick's Tiberius exhibition, which I found incredibly haunting. He's quite the master of effortlessly finding the beauty in the gritty and grotesque.
