Trade 103 | Veronika Poymyetyeva

This summer had presented - and would continue to present - the opportunity for some repeat trades and chances to cross paths with familiar faces from earlier in the project. In this case Veronika (Trade 55) and I arranged another Italy Trade (because Italy) and as a bonus Genoa was also the new base of Laura (Trade 35) back from the initial non-international stage of the project.

You’ll quickly see a theme: swimsuits and “blue-ass water”. Fitting when fitness, nutrition & Italy is Veronika’s playground. Nudity/half clothed is not ground well trodden for me as a photography genre and very easy to do distastefully from what I’ve seen. But with the aid of Veronika’s ideas and Italy’s A+ blue hour light we were able to create some results I was very pleased with for a first foray into imagery unsuitable for Instagram’s prudish community guidelines.
