BEAUTY: Photography--Formento + Formento
Husband and wife photography team BJ and Richeille Formento created their series "Circumstance" on a cross-country road trip, shooting in empty, forlorn locations with models they met on the day. Part Gregory Crewdson, part Cindy Sherman, the Formento's series is cinematic, narrative, evocative, and full of enigma--and exquisitely lit. Each image feels like a film still from a lonely 70s epic or perhaps an Edward Hopper-inspired 1950s Cinemascope drama.
