There's something about the combination of photography and illustration that really excites me. The current issue of Cream magazine features a really lovely example of this: a fashion story which is a collaboration between illustrator Kelly Smith and photographer Macushla Burke.
These images just make me swoon. I love the softness of the images, the feather, the rock chick vibe... they are so beautiful and yet the black crows give them a slightly sinister edge. Perfect.
On her blog Kelly said that the photos reminded her a bit of Kate Hudson in Almost Famous, which led her to think about Chris Robinson. Hence the black crows. Love that train of thought!
