Tony Ellis captures his subject in full, gathering all the content available and making it work; with Veronika Istomina as his sidekick, we are presented with an impeccable juxtaposition of 90’s rap and grunge against today’s sexiest lingerie and one-piece bathing suits. Borne in ripped blue jeans, a sheer halter dress and cornrows, she poses tastefully on the streets of New York City. Veronika really exhibits her diversity as model, easily transitioning to a seductive unkempt bun and creamy white one piece. Paired with a knit cardigan or black leather jacket, Tony grasps the ease with which Veronika wears the bathing suit.

Tony is a fashion and portrait photographer in NYC who has worked with a huge number of models to produce stunning portraits, and now he comes together with Veronika, a Russian model and student, to exemplify both artists at their work in this beautiful set.
