Photographer Peter Funch worked with stylist Luke Langsdale to create these racy images for the Volume 12 issue of S Magazine.
We caught up with Peter for a few words about the shoot:
“I came up with the idea about girls in the these old scenes where nudity really is not seen I have always loved old photos from the unknown photographers, so I went to the New York Historic Library to look at old books with photos from NYC from the 20’s and 30’s. I used these photos as the background and then shot the girls in my studio posing as if they were there with the people back then. I then super imposed it in post production. Luke Langsdale the stylist had found vintage clothing that fit into that time period.
“It was great to do something very cheerful, a bit naughty and cabaret inspired for a change. Also working with something that had a whole other look than I’m used to working with. The response to the shoot has been that it looks very believable and did not look like anything I’ve shot. I have good responses from the models saying that it was great to see the final images after running around naked in the studio.”
