When the glamour of nude photography meets the extravagance of full fantasy illustration ...
Hi, here you have it: a multidisciplinary piece of art combining Achraf Amiri's sinister and surrealistic creatures with real and artistic, black and white photography, shot by Dirk Alexander and male model Jaime De Oliveira playing the nude and submissive part here.
I really love Amiri's dark and romantic illustrations and this juicy collaboration really sticks out and caught my attention.

Amiri about the project
It's my first collaboration with a photographer and the concept is pure improvisation. I imagined dynamical situations between the model and my imaginary creatures, to create a contrast that suggest communication, always in a dramatic but fashionable context.
