STORY - Down River

STYLIST – Janai Anselmi

Steven Popovich captured a stunning exclusive for Fashion Gone Rogue inspired by artwork from the Italian Renaissance. Janai developed the concept of combining renaissance chiaroscuro lighting with a dark underwater setting and selected fashion that was either rich and earthy in tone or ethereal in nature whilst wet.


This was initially shot as part of Steve’s body of work for Nick Knight’s Mastered course. The shoot needed to meet the brief requirements: to create an editorial that would suit luxurious 10Magazine.


Shot in studio, there is a baptism overtone throughout this story. The willing models were prompted to wriggle and splash around as required to create the divots of light across the water.
