Smells Like Spring Spirit

A KALTBLUT exclusive. Photography by Esther Galván. Model is Mario Sena. Make up and Hair by María Lorain. Styling by Amira Namías. Flowers by Semilla Salvaje. Esther Galván is a photographer and filmmaker settled in Madrid (Spain). From a very young age she developed a special ability to capture moments and has made a living out of it. Portraits and fashion are her main specialty, although with an original set of formats, as she uses digital and film (35 and 120) in all of her projects.

Her goal is to capture people who do not conform to the standards set by society, invisible and non-normative people to give them a voice.

An ode to spring on a hot summer day.

Two stations that touch each other but each have their own essences. Floral patterns dominate the editorial with that spring vibe, and the queer and grunge touches recreate that similarity and remoteness of the two seasons.

This spring-inspired summer editorial has been captured in analogue and is accompanied by a video piece.
