Boy Meets Girl

21 October 2015

A long awaited kiss, a premature touch of warm skin sliding across your body. The electricity of just being in somebody's company; human kind, a species of fascination, discovery and beauty. The pair lounge in an artistic, perfectly lit studio apartment, lithe bodies reflecting sunlight as both of their beauty radiates. Their Kingdom. Like the king with his lioness in their lair.

“Every cloud is unique, you will never see the same again and I look at Timo the same way. I'm sure I will never find someone like him again.”

Photographer Bettina Genten celebrates love by taking it back to basics; stripped back grunge minimalism highlighting the simple connection between two people. Stylish and meaningful. Organic and quietly beautiful. True and honest. A mutual understanding in something we all desire to find. Be it the slight nod that beckons a sentence, or a gaze that is wholly understood. This delicate connection between couple Eline (Ulla Models) and Timo (Rebel Model Management) is subtly mesmerising.

Follow them through this photoset from a strewn duvet across the floor, to their slow venture outside in a very raw, romantic display.

She means a lot to me and she knows me better than I do sometimes.”

Words by Molly Rose Baker.
