RACHEL MARQUES: THE POMAK BRIDE

Despite having dabbled in photography as a self-thaught artist, Rachel Marques, originally from Lisbon, Portugal, has a consistent and promising portfolio in fashion photography. Among her most recent works is this series, which reinterprets an ancient tradition of the Pomak community. As part of the Muslim culture in Bulgaria, this place has an important rite of marriage that has survived for centuries and involves the bride dress with floral crowns, veils and bright red details in her outfit, elements which are elegantly translated  and shown in this photographic series.
