”may I have plastic instead?”

Köln-based 'Qvest' magazine came to publish
a thought-provoking editorial called ”Taintless
luminaries” in its 43th issue, actually a kind of
ode to plastic and its ubiquitous presence in
our lives through the amazing pictures taken
by Hamburg-born photographer Tomaas who
moved to New York going along with his whim
to live and work in the States as a professional
fashion and advertising lensman.

Styled by fellow associate Carla Engler, independent
fashion and beauty creative director, writer and stylist
who's also a brand consultant of repute, the gripping
editorial showed model Lisette wittily wrapped in
cellophane and nylon foil with headpieces made by
a wreath of straws, plastic forks and bottle parts
to emphasize that you don't necessarily need
high-end outfits to make a great fashion editorial.

I guess I'd better tell you I didn't notice these
remarkable shots until there were featured
in 'One Small Seed', the independent South African
media powerhouse managing the quarterly print
magazine and the broader online platform behind
it to showcase local and international creative 
talents no matter how big or small they are.
