Victoria’s Secret man behind the lens, global art activist and friend to high-powered women like Barbara Streisand and Donna Karan photographer, Russell James shares a non-angelic photo of Alessandra Ambrosio in culturally relevant caves and a traditional Chumash Indian village for Russell’s Nomad Two Worlds project.
Created by world renowned photographer Russell James, NOMAD TWO WORLDS began as a collaborative art project with Indigenous artists. In the last decade it has evolved from James’ individual attempt to understand the clash of ancient and modern cultures he witnessed growing up in Australia to what it is today - a powerful expression of partnership, reconciliation, and economic opportunity in action through art, music and film that has become a global example of true collaboration across deep cultural divides.
One hopes that Alessandra’s images will be published in a new Nomad book in the style of last September’s. As for Russell James’ V2, he produced some of the most sensually divine images of primarily Victoria’s Secret models that I’ve seen in a long while.
On that note, I see that James has a new book coming out in March titled ‘Around the House with Candice Swanepoel’.
Enjoy Alessandra’s video from her shoot with Russell. After that — one of my favorite Victoria’s Secret ‘blue mood’ shoots of Adriana Lima. Pure gorgeosity! ~ Anne
