What is B ALBUM? It's an imaginary journey through one year of life of emerging supermodel - Basia Szkaluba (IMG Models, New York).
The B letter, [be:] is her name initial and a word used to describe different states of mind pictured in this album.
The project was developed in total secrecy.
Only three people knew about it: Basia, her mom, Kasia and me, the photographer.
Our aim was to create an album of simple, straightforward photography. Hence, you won't find here any designer rags, stylized hair or make-up. Just pure, raw beauty of Basia.
Every month of the year, we were meeting with Basia at exactly same place - a lakeshore, not far away from the place where Basia lives.
We wanted to create a sensation of passing time and changing of seasons. Everything was done in very rare moments of Basia's spare time - between her school studies and professional model work. So, the timing had to be perfect. Additionally, we did a number of side-sessions, when the mood was right and we felt the need to save the moment.
