Q & A with photographer Maria Kornoukhova:
JS: What is the inspiration for the editorial?
MK: The editorial was inspired by Rene Magritte. I really admire Rene’s view as an artist. Rene worked with strangeness and his artwork is so witty and mysterious at the same time.
I have wanted to create an artwork looking at childhood in the context of surrealism, strangeness and mystique. The series’ leitmotif is black and white checks. Our team sincerely hopes to work on other projects within the same theme because it greatly inspires us.
JS: Do you have a stand out moment during the shoot?
MK: There were many hilarious moments during the shooting, for example, when lemons hanging from the tree were falling down after a while and the models had to dodge those fruit bombs.
