I guess it's probably the one-length, middle-parted, rapunzel-esque locks that make Henrietta Hellburg so mysterious. Along with her hair, her long limbs and natural, angelic face make her alluring yet sweet. I was contemplating whether or not to post both editorials, but I just couldn't choose between the two. Henrietta is just so beautiful and with even the most simplest, calmest of expressions, she is able to convey a variety of different emotions in the photographs. It makes sense though that she is just a natural born talent and she is very natural in front of the camera: no stiffness, very relaxed and elegant.
I think what also drew me to these two editorials was the subdued coloring and scenery. In Sam's, there's this rushed-city-life going on behind Henrietta and its almost as if she's this lost girl in the middle of New York. I can't get over the angles. Her profile-view is perfection.
Then in Lena's photos, Henrietta is alone, motionless (even though they are photographs), and portrays this sadness and longing just by slightest parting of her mouth or half-shut eye lid.
She is so so beautiful. I'm so happy to have come across her. Makes me want to grow my hair even longer...if only my hair was that smooth.
