The enchanting beauty of a girl with red hair and freckles smoothly nestled in the greens and the browns of a wood, embracing the wild nature in a dreamy atmosphere, a desire of harmony and peace rarely found in the daily chaos of the urban life.

The enchanting beauty of a girl with red hair and freckles smoothly nestled in the greens and the browns of a wood, embracing the wild nature in a dreamy atmosphere, a desire of harmony and peace rarely found in the daily chaos of the urban life.

The Italian photographer Nicolò Occhipinti wanted to search and focus on the most simple, pure and genuine form of beauty, not altered by a heavy make-up or post-production, but enhanced by a wise use of both natural and artificial lights, depth-of-field, pose, composition, color toning and styling.

Rather than showcasing images of an airbrushed model, the photographer accentuated the beauty and uniqueness of freckled skin, a striking trait that is often hidden in exchange for more smooth and spot-free skin. Each shot invites the viewer to look at the smallest details, at her skin texture, her intriguing gaze, her small wrinkles which show a dissonant expression of uneasiness or, maybe, sadness, revealing the personality and the emotions of the model, her elegant sensuality and, at the same time, her fragility and vulnerability. All around, blended with the subject, the fingers of a flourishing nature on her, the green leaves and the legs of a butterfly that lightly touch her skin and seem to recall a lost world where we come from. In few words, an example of gorgeous fine art introspective photography, a travel into the deepest parts of the human soul and the discover of the real essence of beauty.[ Model: Lucrezia Marchiani / MUA: Evant Ailin]

About Nicolò Occhipinti

Nicolò Occhipinti’s passion for photography began when he was just 18, and soon discovered an infinite love for portraits. Self-taught, he developed a particular ability to direct non-professional models achieving powerful compositions, with natural poses and expressions. His pictures witness his obsession for a carefully prepared photography, a great attention to the details and accurate lighting, posing and composition to leverage all positive aspects of the subjects and minimize eventual defects. “For me a portrait is amazing when it catches and shows the personality of the subject, his/her emotions and beauty with simplicity”, he affirms, “a powerful way to investigate the human soul, to create a magical link with the subject and the opportunity to create stunning pictures together.“ [Official Website]
