Whilst taking some shots of Chantelle the other week, one pose just screamed this concept at me.
Having discussed with Chantelle how I wanted this edit to go and got her ok I have pushed it a little bit more.
So, the concept is "Heroin Chic" - a play on the phrase commonly used in the fashion industry for super thin unhealthy looking models used for fashion runways.
Here, the "model" is actually a heroin addict rather than merely having "the look" fallen on hard times, homeless, still posing, with the last fragments of her previous life - her dress and shoes, wondering where it all went wrong.
Big thanks to Chantelle for allowing me to pursue this creative vision.
Just to clarify - Chantelle doesn't take heroin, nor do I encourage drug use or violence against women, let's make that clear ! I did the track lines, dirty look and shiner in post.
Give me your thoughts. She's probably not thin enough for "Heroin Chic" per se I suppose ?
