I couldn’t resist taking these photos of Nadia Townsend at a party. She was dressed the part -like a fragile domestic goddess amidst the retro decor of her kitchen. It was almost as if the set and costume were specially constructed for the shoot. The dress, itself, inappropriately glamorous, yet effortless, was symbolic. From the dainty lace sleeves to the exquisitely haphazard ruching detail. Like she had not yet dressed for the day but was quite in need of an alcoholic beverage. The backlight gives it a sinister ambience.
