Photographer Cecy Young

Posted on May 4th, 2012

I’ve been a huge fan of Cecy Young’s photography for a few years now so when I came across this new editorial featured at Ben Trovato’s blog, you can imagine how excited I was. The model’s brightly dyed lavender hair is stunning by itself but what makes this editorial a treasure to me is how beautifully the wooded backdrop compliments it all.

“For me photography is a way of inventing stories, I find it very interesting when imagination & reality come together to create something new. I get inspired by classic cinematography, women, color, and my childhood memories,” says Young.

    I’ve been a fan of hers for a long time too, she’s just amazing! And I love this shoot, that lavender hair really captured my heart.

    Love this look and it’s in such a beautiful setting. I’ve always wished I could carry off lavender hair but I just don’t think it’s meant to be.

    Breathtaking! The second picture is so ethereal

    It’s so odd seeing her featured in blogs. She’s from my hometown and even offers workshops in here. So glad she’s getting praised.
