THROUGH A GLASS DARKLY by Joseph Seresin.


Inspired by surrealist Man Ray and the 1920’s as seen through a noir lens, London photographer Joseph Seresin and makeup artist Christabel Draffin are exploring dark beauty. It’s a haunted glamour with Jazz baby black kohl-rimmed eyes, intense wine stained lips and spider lashes, an exploration of the other-worldly and the veil between us and what lies beneath.
