Editorial • ‘Elastic Fantastic’ - a female beauty portrait with feminine design language by Julia KELTSCH c/o Avenger Photographers for Leica S magazine

07.07.2020 • Beauty photographer Julia KELTSCH c/o Avenger Photographers examined the female body entirely without a voyeuristic gaze for Leica S magazine. The result are abstract but still concrete photos, with a playful approach to the element of elasticity. In front of the camera stood model Lisa Marie c/o PMA. Styling was taken care of by Lisa Maria Lohmann, with hair & make-up by Melanie Hunger, both c/o BIGOUDI.

“What I had in mind was to capture the uniqueness and beauty of the female body in an aesthetic manner without explicit or voyeuristic intention. It certainly has a lot to do with the fact that me and everyone else involved in the project are women and we have a very personal perspective of the female body accordingly. I also think that it can also influence the atmosphere and the results of a such an intimate shoot,” Julia tells us about her work. The entire interview with the beauty and fashion photographer is available via LEICA.
