‘ORCHID’ sprung from a personal project during which photographer Ottilie Landmark met the zine’s muse, Orchid. Collaborating with movement director, Becky Namgauds, the project became an intimate exploration of nudity and glamour.
After hand printing the images of Orchid over a period of months, Landmark felt inspired to share them in an offline format where they could be experienced uncensored. “They are in some way super simple, and maybe that’s the point. It’s a portrait of a person I met and felt a connection with on the day we shot. The zine is the result of this meeting”.
The images have been shot on a variety of film formats: medium format, 35mm and polaroid, and have been hand printed.
