Black and White Babe of the Week: 26 Martina Valkova



Here is Slovakian model Martina Valkova photographed by Swedish photographer Marcus Ohlsson in a photo pictorial called Twin Peaks.  This is particularly appropriate as we have just finished watching series one of the classic nineties David Lynch TV show of the same name.  If you haven't seen it you should! 




Valkova is just over 5'9" tall and measures 34-24-35.  Other than that, information is very hard to find about her.




She has appeared in many magazines, particularly in Germany (Petra, German Elle)  but also Madame, Vogue Italia and Harper's Bazaar.




Advertising-wise she did a big campaign for Campari  She also, strikingly, did the spring/summer catalogue for French lingerie firm Lejaby.




Marcus Ohlsson is an increasingly well known fashion photographer who launched his career as a professional in 2005, having left school to work with established Swedish photographers Calle Stoltz, Camilla Åkrans and Mikael Jansson.




Olsson uses a lot of natural light in his photography and his colour work often shows a washed out, over-exposed look which gives much of it a romantic, seventies feel.




Here, however, he treats Valkova as an abstract, found object, engineering beguiling glimpses of luscious portions of her.




Splendidly arty!
