Myla & Inga | S Magazine 12 Spring / Summer 2011 by Damien Neva

The parting shot of Stanley Kubrick‘s The Shining focuses on a 1921 portrait of the Overlook Hotel’s staff that includes a beaming Jack Torrance memorably played by Jack Nicholson. This photographic sleight of hand is an unsettling coda that suggest Jack’s terror was not limited to the episode chronicled in Kubrick’s masterpiece. In a decidedly less haunting bit of photographic embellishment there is this morning’s story from the pages of S Magazine 12 Spring / Summer 2011 featuring Ford+’s Myla and Inga Eriksdottir photographed by Peter Funch. Titled “Women’s Movement” this Luke Langsdale-styled story uploads Myla and Inga into grainy black and white portraits from the early 20th century culled from the archives of the New York Historic Library. The result is both wry and thoroughly sexy. Truth be told there aren’t many clothes in this story for the subjects to wear save the odd Agent Provocateur kimono worn by Myla in the bar room shot, but it would be churlish to begrudge this genuinely inspired editorial. After all, let’s not forget that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy…all work and no play… .

”Historic”? You’ve got to be joking. So you stuck a couple of models in historic photographs and have them expose themselves, and this is ”historic”? What’s ”historic” about it? Vulgar and juvenile is more like it.

I love it. It brought a smile to my face. I don’t find anything vulgar about a pretty female’s body. It looks like S Magazine was just having some fun.

My goodness, my Guinness this is absolutely brilliant. Not only were the folks at S Magazine having some fun but someone was exercising some serious technical skillzzz.
