For the Amsterdam Fashion Institute

Around June I was asked to make the photography and make-up for the final project of a student of the Amsterdam Fashion Institute, this was a last minute call so I kept the make-up simple but in theme with what the designer Denice Bottse required. Nice model Gail Hoever very pacient and kind.

Sirus from Sirus

 

Sirus from Sirus

Its name is unpronounceable for humans so it goes by the name of its planet, Sirus. It is deaf and blind, everybody in planet Sirus is, they touch, smell and taste only. They neither have a gender, they do not reproduce from time to time they appear through a neon yellow hole that is place in the external atmosphere of their planet Sirus. They have a short spare of life but they don't know exactly how because time also doesn't exist. Sirus study planet Earth from magazines an old CD tv series that arrive in the black market of its planet and it is a big fan of Falcon Crest.

Uki

 Uki

Uki is a creature from another planet, but same galaxy. Once, she visited the Earth, she got fascinated and disturbed at the same time for all the contrast she saw. Her planet is a rainbow, nothing wrong happens there because everything is beauty, happiness and perfection, she still remembers her time on Earth and cry remembering all that excitement, the experience and emotions she felt. Because her world is perfect she never experienced contrast before. She won that trip to planet Earth in a Bingo casino there in here world, she use to go every friday night to kill the depresion of living in perfection.

Audrey Hepburn Assignment

I finished my make-up master year in April, those pictures are still not here from the photographer. These are pics from my Audrey Hepburn assignment, we had to take inspiration in her style from the 50's and then make our own. My model was Annebel Cunha, the school provide her to me and I was so lucky, very happy with her, quite stunning her work in front of the camera and a very good company for what I classified "the longest day of my life".

People of Amsterdam: The Ex-con

The Ex-con. 

Camila is stuck in the 80's, she got in prison in 1988 and was released few weeks ago still wearing the same outfit that when she went to jail. She used to have a band in the 80's but wrote a song against the government and was sent to prison for 25 years. While in there, she kept her spirit up listening to music even when she only got headphones without music equipment. Sometimes she gets nostalgic of the live that never happens but she's trying to remain positive, in prison she took a course of beads embroidery and she did the jacket of the picture herself while incarcerated. She got a chance as a DJ in a local bar same place where she was arrested.
