Created jointly with stylist Stella Gosteva and make-up artist Marina Keri, this photography series seeks to “illuminate the dreamy phantasmagorias to which we disappear to in the night, creating charaters that ‘radiate a sense of ever-lasting awe and reverence.'”

“The protagonists radiate both the contemplative and poetic artificiality of Sugimoto’s wax sculptures.”
