A fashion shoot turned into an alchemic meditation on the quintessential nature of beauty. We journey through an evolving juxtaposition of the elements, Air, Fire, Earth, and Water. They have the potential to crush and destroy, but they fall into a delicate balance by the end, yielding to the Fifth Element, Quintessence or Aether. This is the lightest of all elements, corresponding to the Buddhist concept of Void, and thus moves through time without a trace... Shot on location in Oahu, Hawaii.
