Vivian Davis, Vinyl, and the Beat Generation

Vivian Davis, Vinyl, and the Beat Generation

Vivian Davis loves the 1950s Beat Movement aesthetic, often characterized by berets, bongos, vinyl records, and books that challenged publishing norms of the time.

Vivian requested smokey eyes with strong eyeliner wings and a soft, pink nude lip. To keep the feel of the 1950s, we shot Vivian in black and white and pumped up the contrast in the resulting images. Vivian and her wife, Jes, rounded out the shoot cuddling together while listening to vinyl.
