  • Catalogue Essay

    Sølve Sundsbø took this ethereal photograph of Cara Delevingne for Vogue China’s December 2011 issue, closing Cara’s breakthrough year as a model. In this stunning image, Cara personifies an angel fallen on earth, wearing an almost entirely transparent dress complete with a pair of wings, a halo of light delicately outlining her heavenly aura. ‘Although relatively unknown,’ remembers Sundsbø, ‘you could feel the energy and potential in her.’ Just one year following this collaboration, Cara won 'Model of the Year' at the 2012 British Fashion Awards. Sundsbø successfully works across a range of platforms from photography and fashion to music and film, winning an Emmy® award in 2011 for ‘Fourteen Actors Acting’, a video project for The New York Times. He has exhibited internationally, including his 2018 solo show Beyond the Still Image at Palazzo Reale in Milan, and his work is held in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London.
