by Kate van radenThe Libertine welcomes fabulous first time contributor Nick Sushkevich. Nick, who has worked in fashion for years (most notably for Ulyana Sergeenko) has created an incredible studio editorial to feature the dramatic attributes of young siren, Liza Sotnikova. The series contains so many striking and memorable images, that the Libertine will be releasing it in two parts for our Spring Fling series! With the second half of this story, there will be an accompanying interview with the photographer himself; regarding the journey of his career into fashion photography, as well as updates on some of the exciting opportunities on his horizon. Part one of ‘Mighty Aphrodite’ captures the smoldering sensuality of our whimsical muse, with simplistic styling and lavish embellishments. This collection is one of our personal favorites of the season…hence why we are dedicating two features to it! The dynamic Voguesque perfection of the images is virtually overwhelming. Stay tuned for the second installment, and…Enjoy!
