COVID-19 project with her boyfriend, Jordan Hemingway for LOVE Magazine :inluv: 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.


Some notable moments of upper body thinspo:

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.

Year: 2017
For: Interview Magazine
Photographer: Mikael Jansson

I don't know if this is me just being nit-picky, but while I absolutely adore her body, her face is just an overall "meh" for me. Maybe it's these photos, but she really doesn't have anything going for her other than her hair and an overall "jolie laide" aesthetic.

She is so much an editorial model, only suitable for a couple of couture runway shows, but is just mesmerizing to look at in an interesting editorial such as the ones posted above. She can pull of the darker and more twisted looks very well.

I agree she doesn’t look great in those photos.That’s one of the challenges of that aesthetic though - models like Issa need to work a lot harder to pull off a good photo than a conventionally attractive model. A photo taken from a certain angle or certain lighting means they can easily look more “laide” than “Jolie”. But a photo from a different angle or in different lighting and they can look incredible. It’s so interesting to see the huge difference lighting/angles can have. I think that’s part of the appeal, at least for me.
