17 Weeks

a photo challenge by Laura Zalenga

In autumn of 2017, the photographer Laura Zalenga started a photography challenge: to create pictures with topics she is giving – a new topic each week, for seventeen weeks.

So from October 2017 until the end of January 2018, I met up with a bunch of volunteers to realize the ideas for the different prompts. This project was a true lesson in spontaneity and leaving my comfort zone, as draping was the main styling method. It was also a great opportunity to get behind the camera and bring life to a concept that only existed in the imagination so far.

Photos and Styling: Woodcabin

Models: Sandy, Gwen Romanus, Pia, Jan, Starlet Tiger, Shamaniac Art, Chaotenmenschin, Laura, Natalie, Sven, Conni, Julie Green, Evelyn, Kim Sophie, Aimée, Adam and Rika – thank you so much for your help!
