Using ‘supernatural’ as the jumping off point Stylist Cornelius Lafayette concepted a story and enlisted Art Director Katherine Borah and Photographer Dayane Ohira to help bring her tale of the deceased to life. In the narrative the protagonist resides in Easton PA and has been trying to connect with the “other side” as she knows there are spirits that live on her families property. Her black wardrobe eventually turns to white in a symbolic gesture of her transition to the “other side”.
