‘Deep Shadows’ by Marsy Hild Thorsdottir
- Brit Seaton
In her editorial series for Kinfolk‘s summer issue, photographer Marsy Hild Thorsdottir captures model Imade Ogbewi amid volcanic rock and reservoirs, shot in the heat and heart of the sun.
Styled by Rose Forde, Ogbewi wears loosely structured garments from Loewe, Marni and JW Anderson. She appears in character as both a lone explorer and a woman of leisure, reclining in the sand and behind the blue and white stripes of a parasol. In long-shot images of Ogbewi in the mountains, her figure is drenched in golden fabric that embraces the stark summer sun. The background landscapes are natural and dramatic, appearing to evoke the rural environments of the photographer’s Icelandic homeland.
