L’épouvantail: Exclusive Editorial from Altorrin McIntyre and Eric Garcia-March

The Scarecrow

Words by Art Director and Stylist Altorrin McIntyre (@altorrin):

Whenever I am embarking on a story idea, I like to go with a concept that hasn’t been run into the ground by other artists. I reached out to one of my preferred photographers, Eric Garcia-March (@egarmarch) to help convey my vision. He was perfect for this because he is on the few great photographers that is able to go on a journey and get lost with me.

I saw this scarecrow story with a great deal of texture. It’s totally what a scarecrow would wear. The hay, the hair, the mixing of patterns and the layering, all are intentional. We chose the model Alyona Subbotina (@alyonasubbotina) because when it comes to great movement she is among the best!

Metaphorically speaking, just like scarecrows — we all can be stuffed with crap and manipulated if we aren’t wise.

The hair is great, the model is divine, makeup is flawless and of course the lighting is perfection. My goal was to just to evoke — whether it’s a good, bad, scary, dreamy — whatever! Just bring the scarecrow to life and feel something!
