We get it. You hit the genetic jackpot... Taylor Hill for Vic Secret
To capture girls in this way is to create magic, the illusive moment that is puberty is Petra's most unreal talent. Somehow for her, the lens is not connected to camera at all, it's more like the eye of another girl in the room added up with the pouty lips, fleshy body parts and pale pink colors her work makes you just scream out the word MILKSHAKE with a serious junior High angsty tone.
This is so spectacular, it's like what I always dreamed of making but never knew how!! Oh dreamy dream dream dolls...
"Marina Bychkova is a Russian-Canadian figurative artist and a founder of Enchanted Doll™- a luxury toy label of exquisite, porcelain dolls.
More than mere playthings, Enchanted Dolls are elegantly sculpted and articulated works of art. Strikingly nude, engraved or adorned in opulent sculptural costumes of precious metals, gemstones, and rare found objects, each doll intricately conveys an aspect of our humanity. Unique and delicate, their forms evoke a strong emotional response, haunting us with their vulnerability. All at once innocent and sexual, Enchanted Dolls depict highly stylized images of femininity, while at the same time reflecting on life’s playful naiveté."
“The reason I love making dolls is because it’s such a multidisciplinary art form. I’m not content working in just one medium such as painting or sculpture, and dolls offer me a very diverse and satisfying tactile experience. To create a doll I get to do it all: sculpture, industrial design, painting, engraving, mold-making, drawing, metalwork, fashion and jewelry design. I want it all, or nothing!”
- Marina Bychkova
Seems like this one was done as much for the ladies as it was for the boys.
