International model Eugenia Kuzmina is the subject of a new 2018 calendar photographed by Antoine Verglas. The world-renowned fashion photographer shot Kuzmina on the Caribbean Island of St. Barts where the blonde beauty wears nothing more than a smile and plenty of sand, reminding us that humankind is one with the elements and nature.
“I wanted the calendar to reflect a human synergy with the earth and sea. We are a part of this world just as much as it is a part of us, therefore we must honor its beauty and offer our love and protection”, says Kuzmina.
A portion of the proceeds of calendar sales will benefit hurricane relief both in the U.S. and abroad.
Kuzmina, who has worked with some of the biggest designers in the fashion industry, chose to be photographed sans clothing as a sign of respect to the natural beauty of the environment.
“We knew that wearing bathing suits would create a fashion focus so we opted to go au naturale, with an emphasis on the human form and it’s natural balance with the surrounding environment”, explains Kuzmina.
Verglas adds, “It was a pleasure to once again work with the lovely Eugenia on an island that I cherish so much. Eugenia is a fantastic model and her generosity, beauty and kindness really show through in the photographs.”
About Eugenia Kuzmina:
Eugenia Kuzmina caught the attention of the fashion world at age 13 when she walked a catwalk in Paris for Yves St. Laurent alongside model icons Carla Bruni and Naomi Campbell. Soon the Russian beauty was working with such top names as Cartier, Armani, Ungaro, Guy Laroche, Commes des Garcons, Max Mara, Carlos Miele, Lanvin, Hermes, Isabel Marant and a host of others. She has starred in countless campaigns for companies like L’Oreal, Wella, Dior, Lancaster Cosmetics, Replay Jeans, Miss Me Jeans, Kenzi and a JC Penny campaign that included a giant billboard towering many stories above Time Square. Kuzmina has appeared on the covers and pages of Vogue, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, British GQ, W, Elle, Self, Shape, Genlux, Nylon, Glamour, Grazia, Harper’s Bazaar, Oyster, and Paper.
Antoine Verglas was born in Paris where he began his career on the other side of the camera as the host of a popular French television show after graduating from France’s prestigious E.S.C. School of Business. Soon Verglas entered the fast-paced world of fashion photography. In 1990, Verglas moved to New York with his camera and his vision. Persistence paid off with a documentary style photo series for French Elle featuring some of the top names in the modeling world. Shooting Stephanie Seymour, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford at home in very personal portraits just as they were reaching celebrity status was his big break and indicative of the style which has become the Verglas signature. This intimate style of capturing the person behind the camera has led to the rapid pace of work Verglas now has shooting for the world’s top fashion magazines. His photographs have appeared on the covers and pages of Elle, Esquire, Vogue, GQ, Maxim, Sports Illustrated, Bazaar, Grazia, Haute Living, Cosmopolitan, and others.
