Apart from the frisking, of course, there’s very little that’s sexy or attractive about going through airport security. There’s certainly little that’s sartorial about padding around in your socks, or in men holding their trousers up as their belts sail through the X-ray machines. Somehow, though, Mirka Severa Frahm has managed to turn the situation into one that’s very much sexy, attractive and sartorial, taking it as the starting point for some great fashion editorial shots.

Photographer and art director Mirka Laura Severa, is assisted by Michael Frahm who is responsible for the post-production elements. The airport shots are so smart and serene, making even the big Alsatian dog seem effortlessly chic as he dips his snout into the scanner and over some very expensive luggage. Elsewhere in the Severa Frahm portfolio there’s some great still life work that pops with bright tones and brighter concepts, as well as the old pretty girl in car on sunny day chestnut.
