“Mundanity will be the death of me. It seeps like a venom into my veins, slowing my heart beat and numbing my senses. I’m tired of the context, the excuses and the waiting. In a world of habitual repetitive acts, I dare you to put things out of order. Cast a light onto the murky shadows. Cross the line and say what you know they’re all thinking. It is a rebellious act to honor yourself in a world that profits from your self-doubt. Sharpen your dull tongue and exercise your vision for truth. Dream fast and live honestly.”
Facing the glare of everyday living, model Lucie Von Alten of Marilyn brings a striking truth to this editorial shot by Russian photographer, Emmie America. Styled by Soukena Jean-Jaques, this series will wake you up and shake your daily routine.
