My project "Gravity" for @vogueindia Featuring: @gucci Creative Director/Photographer: @victoriakrundysheva Starring: @kayaancontractor Styled by: @thetyagiakshay MUA: @eshwarlog Hair by: @jrmellocastro Assisted by: @adityaries @thatnikongirl "Call back"- our inability to let go of a giant guard at our invisible prison in form of devices that keep us tied to them emotionally and physically. Did you know? We are making our own gravity. We get to decide whether to fly or to stick to the ground. Whether we are as light as a feather or as hard as a rock. Every day you choose what you hold onto- is it your fear holding you down, is it technology that pulls you back. Is it the forced ties of superficial or is it a free flight of pure thought? Elevated spirit that is not bound by expectations or conventions or heavy body grounded by invisible, pushed back down every time it tries to get up. Choose what you hold on to. Choose when to let go. You decide whether you are a rock or a feather. Every day when you open your eyes. You decide. #stunning_shots #visualsoflife #phenomenalshot #vogueindia #mobilemag #theportraitpr0ject #thefashionpr0ject #portraitpage #myphotoshop #way2ill #vscoindia  #photographyislifee #ig_asia #bevisuallyinspired #инстаграмнедели #dream_image #soi #sombrebeings #featuremeseas #_soi #launchdsigns #createcommune #visualambassadors #girlscreating #fashioneditorial #Ps_Storybook
