A rare case for our filming: the stars were present on both sides of the camera.
Have you seen this photo session of Anna Sedokova? In short, it was so …
Of course, it’s boring all my life to work as an ordinary star of world cinema. Antonio Banderas, in between shooting, is trying to find a way out of his creative energy in a variety of ways. He seriously enrolled in the English School of Design named after St. Martin and released his own clothing line, he develops his own line of perfume and, finally, works as a photographer.
The last two circumstances led him eventually to a Moscow photo studio. The fact is that in addition to the popular male fragrance King of Seduction, Antonio has a female version – Queen of Seduction, which translates as “queen of seduction”. To ensure that this bright image was not for the Russian public an empty sound or an empty smell, the author decided to translate it visually – in the form of a photo session of someone very seductive. And for the photo session to see as many connoisseurs of beauty as possible, it was decided to publish it on the pages of the magazine MAXIM. The favorite of the audience, the singer and star of Instagram Anna Sedokova was chosen for the role of queen of temptation. The sultry beauty of Anna brought the creative team to the idea of the Mediterranean, old Italian films, their passionate and innocent heroines. And the work began to boil.
On these shots (they are made on the set by another remarkable photographer – Timofey Kolesnikov) the working moments of shooting, creative throwings, insights, tomatoes, a bicycle and the way Antonio, desperate to attract Anna’s attention, pierce her with her perfume. What is not visible, but can be guessed at a subconscious level, is the atmosphere of temptation, temptation and passion. You can feel it fully, if you turn to the result of the work – a photo session called “Italian holidays” (it is just printed in this issue). Another option – to get one of the flavors of Antonio. And ideally – to get the fragrance, sprinkle them on the pages of the magazine and revise “Marriage in Italian”.
