Rokas Darulis shoots Alys Hale in these dreamy wonderland-style portraits for Volt Cafe. These photographs are enchanting and charming, Alys looks beautiful, with amazing, creative and innovative styling choices by Yana Sheptovetskaya and Gabriela Splendore.
Alys wears a collection of crazy, whimsical hats to add to the unrealistic element of the editorial. The multi-colored spiky number is particularly special. I seriously love the dreamy aspect of this shoot, and I really love Rokas Darulis’ photographic style, blurring the boundaries and playing with natural light.
Working amazingly alongside Rokas Darulis, art director (and stylist) Yana Sheptovetskaya has done a top job of conveying the wonderland ideas put forward from the styling, make-up (Holleigh Gallon) and hair styling (Kota Suizu).
I really think that Alys Hale is the queen of posing. She is totally nailing every pose in this editorial spread, she’s amazing close-up, far away and has a completely stunning profile. Her skin looks luminous, and I totally love her dark roots and her platinum blonde hair, which is particularly visible in my favorite photograph, her direct close-up.
