Melancholy Darlings

French photographer Andy Julia really knows how to capture the darker essence of his models. If you browse through his online gallery, you'll notice he infuses goth and fetish elements while transending the confines of the genres. He seems to have mastered the ability to balance the sacred and profane, beauty and vulgarity. His work is timeless, and reflects the true spirit of Dark Romanticism.

Wow, I love photos of red head models - makes me realise what mine could do (in this case, it'd need to be longer and a bit redder).
