Positive Season: Stephanie Coffey ‘Monarch’

Positive initially elicits a response of a good-natured disposition and a willingness to find happiness. However, with this shoot we wanted to delve deeper and look at positive as unity and as a divine right.

As with most collaborations, what started as an idea to mix dark and light to create unity and balance turned into something completely different when my team walked through the door.

Some gorgeous head pieces including one that conjured up images of Jesus’ crown of thorns, and a feathered piece that reminded of us of Greco-Roman times gave the theme new life as we attempted to explore the concept Positive through theology and also empowerment. We wanted our model Saira to examine life as a Messiah, a Grecian Princess as well as an apparition separate from a body and free to explore what it truly means to be Positive in spirit.
