What exactly is Beauté Aviaire? Well, at first glance I thought it had something to do with aviation – since most of the models looked to be cloaked in some sort of a bird-like feather costume. Well, the answer is, that’s just half of it. Here’s Lee Howell explaining the project to everyone:
A series of conceptual fine art prints, exploring the connection between the aesthetic beauty that visually lies in the delicate luxurious opulence of avian plumage and the sexual femininity of the female form.
These composite images, where feather meets beauty and fashion, are constructed using the art of photographic capture, photographing models and birdlife in separate instances and in separate locations.
Then digitally manipulating the imagery in postproduction, to create a new single piece of artwork, a combination of both bird and beauty, each perfectly complementing the other.
