Photographer Mirka Laura Severa has a flair for humour and surrealism in her images, exemplified by a recent shoot for SZ Magazin where she chose to replace human models with snow ones.
At Nicer Tuesdays she told the brilliant story of how the highly unusual project came together atop a glacier in freezing temperatures, with a lack of oxygen and a precarious cliff edge worryingly close by. Mirka charts the idea from sketch to final images, along the way telling comical anecdotes about the perils of building your own models, and giving insight to the logistics of such a unique project.
