Once a year Los Angeles-based fashion photographer Viktorija Pashuta creates concept viral photo shoots that gain worldwide exposure and huge buzz in social media. Famous for her conceptualized series ‘What if Guys Were Social Networks‘ and ‘What if Girls Were Internet Browsers‘ published in VOGUE, Esquire, Buzzfeed, Ads of the World, Complex to name a few that gained more than 2 billion hits online – she has just released her new project entitled ‘What if Cars Were SUPERMODELS‘.
Gathered under one roof top 12 renowned super models, Viktorija envisioned what would of happened if cars as if under the enchanted spell would turn into real Women.
Viktorija explains, “In our materialized world – people get so much attached to certain objects that to imagine them as human beings is not that difficult”. She adds that in order to make the images more personal she asked every model to share a quote that reflects the style of each car they are portraying. “The most interesting part – she adds, – was to combine fashion elements with car features, this is why working with the stylists Jesse J & Kim Sheree was so crucial to fullfil the concept”.
“The hardest part in these sort of photo shoots is preparation. Many days were spent finalizing each car’s qualities, features, nuances, things that actually represent the SOUL of every vehicle. For instance, Jeep Wrangler is represented as a female Indiana Jones, a girl who loves adventures and travels; La Ferrari – is the luxurious, sexy brunette; Hummer – is a muscle, extra fit girl; Tesla S is a futuristic, high end girl; Mercedes Benz S Class – classic woman with exceptional elegance and business style; Rolls-Royce Phantom– is a posh, glamorous diva; Kia Optima – fun and effortlessly chic; Volkswagen Van – is a Coachella-hippie party girl; Vintage Corvette – a pin-up coquette; Aston Martin – is a James Bond Spy Girl, Low Rider Impala – a rebel badass chick; and Toyota Camry – casual girl next door”.
