photographer / creative director : Steven Anthony Roe
fashion stylist / makeup artist / model : Tiffany Trezzo

Photographer Steven Anthony Roe and makeup artist Tiffany Trezzo have teamed up under the name Digital Darkroom to create stunning images together. We’re bringing you some of them for the relaunch of our Inspiration photoset feature.

Artist Statement

These images represent a sign of unknown times and looks at how fashion and function will come together in a post-pandemic world. We imagine and manifest a new time when fashion plays on themes that resemble films like The Matrix, outer space and the inclusion of pieces that also serve a function: clothing that protects our bodies and sunglasses to shield our eyes from airborne viruses. Futuristic protective fashion covers the whole body with shiny patent leather, latex, and similar materials created to keep the wearer safe and essentially becomes your avatar. Beauty now is expressed by your chosen uniform (avatar) and in this interpretation is form-fitting, sleek, light reflective ready-to-wear fashion.

How will beauty look when we are all at risk?

These images showcase their vision for how fashion, form, function, and the future will come crashing down together into a glimpse of a new era. As creative partners on a number of projects, this particular shoot was special for them because of their shared love of thought-provoking dark art. They love the energy that they get from stepping into a deeper and darker understanding of today and tomorrow and what may unfold in the world.
