COVID-19 project with her boyfriend, Jordan Hemingway for LOVE Magazine Normally, I find LOVE's videos tacky but this one is tolerable. Reminds me a lot of 20th-century Surrealist films.
'In an Hour Darkly' is a sinister joyride conjured in the spine-chilling time of COVID-19
Jordan Hemingway's witchy film In an Hour Darkly is a sinister joyride conjured in the spine-chilling mess of COVID-19. In spookier times, we often look for a comforting escape. Sometimes this means delving into a romantic novel or a fantastical film. Often, we return to a nostalgic photograph from our childhood reminding us of better times. But in other instances, we heighten the terror. After all, there's nothing better than a hair-raising horror film to make your return to reality that little bit sweeter.
Starring his girlfriend Issa Lish as a seemingly possessed spirit, the film remixes surrealism and horror in a black and white homage to the Noir. Lish's hair disconcertingly wraps around giant pins on the wall, her face painted stark white, as she descends into a claustrophobic cage and chaotically stumbles into a forbidden forest. A multitude of hands wrap around her naked back as she descends into the dark. The closing shot? A sinister laugh into the face of the camera.
It's a much needed reminder that creativity still thrives in the face of COVID-19, all you need is a camera and a willing subject to manifest an unforgettable film.
Not a fan of her face in all honesty... Her weak chin is too prominent and her vibe makes me feel uncomfortable...
She looks like a shrunken scull of Marilyn Manson.
Very incredible body though and it seems to have been held up very consistently throughout the years.
New polas (via Elite NY). She may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I just find her so interesting to look at, though her features only work due to her low weight. I think she'd lose her alienesque appeal if she gained.
I don't think these have been posted yet but I absolutely love how she looks in this shoot! Her alien-esque features really work well with the aesthetic that the photographer was looking for. I really recommend looking up the rest of the shoot here because its other models (Sora Choi and Manami Kinoshita) look amazing as well.
