Avon/Mark for Cosmopolitan Magazine
Karon Conka

Last January I traveled to New York City, to spend a few days off and shooting an advertorial for Avon and the Cosmopolitan Magazine.

At the time, Avon was launching a new makeup brand, called, Mark. For the launch of the new brand, Avon invited as cover girl the powerful brazilian rapper Karol Conka.

On a very windy and cold day, between coffees, we went to the streets of Williamsburg to shooting the editorial. We shot I think in just three hours. Karol is a supermodel as much as a rapper!

To complete the editorial and follow the new brand design, I made four digital collages with images that I took with my Polaroid and film camera while I was in the city.

The whole process to finish the collage work was a bit slower than the usual, but I think the result is great, and fits perfect to the new brand. I’m glad with the results.

Thanks Cris for the invite and trust!
