To mark 100 years since Gustav Klimt’s death, Mastered alumni Emma Diamond (hairdresser) and Jodie Mann (photographer) teamed up to pay homage to the turn of the century painter and his opulent works.

“The inspiration behind the shoot came when I discovered the 100 year anniversary of Gustav Klimt’s death was approaching, falling on February 6, 2018,” Emma explains. “As we’ve seen in recent catwalk collections, art continues to heavily influence fashion and combining art and beauty really appealed to me. Klimt – and in particular, his iconic 1908 work ‘The Kiss’ – is a favourite of many people, and I knew his style had potential to create a stunning editorial.”

“There is something about Klimt’s work though, that gives you that little something extra,” adds Jodie. “He created stunning worlds of eroticism and opulence that you simply cannot resist. Producing one of the century’s most remarkable bodies of erotic art, he managed to gain a sort of immortality – his work set new standards, created controversy and ultimately made him an iconic force in today’s art community. ”

“Emma and I work together a lot,” she continues. “We share a lot of the same values, ideas and goals, so when we combine heads to shoot, we come together very well. Both of us are very fortunate, in that back in 2015, we became part of the enormous MASTERED family. The network includes hundreds and thousands of creatives like us, working in every discipline across the globe. We took the opportunity to dive into this glorious pool of talent to source our team for this shoot.”

“In this eight-shot beauty editorial, we aim to bring the essence of Klimt’s decorative, decadent work to the forefront, whilst feeding our own contemporary style into the final imagery.”
