Achraf Amiri Illustrations

I found this fantastic photo shoot in Idol Magazine which combines Achraf Amiri's illustrations with contemporary fashion designers work. The combination seems to be very complimentary with Amiri's haunting illustrations acting like the model's alter ego setting them free into a world of escapism of seduction and female dominance.

The shoot is very playful as model and illustration interact in a "come hither" manner. This presents how powerful illustration can be; it shows in this case an element of authority; it appears to be the driving force of the shoot itself .
Amiri's line quality is strong with use of very matte blocked out colours mixed with bold vibrant hints of colour. The composition of the illustrations lures the viewer in; the illustrations fill the space with their gaunt, twisted bodies and the strange, sexual positions they hold.
