distinguishing marks

super by retrosuperfutures is a leading brand producing outstanding contemporary eyewear. Starting from a classic, clean silhouette, SUPER has gradually built up their impressive collection of cutting edge shapes, becoming highly popular for its eclectic collection of colorful acetate sunglasses.

“distinguishing marks” is a project by C 41 Studio photographed by Maurizio annese for the 7th “bellissimo” issue of C41 magazine.
Getting down to an essential representation of an objective beauty is an exercise in reduction. Any add-ons would cover the message, instead of empowering it.
In our society, the most essential representation of what we are is the ID card. C 41 studio reinterprets it, taking inspiration from how every feature is shown and grouped in an index. Four portraits of four characters, shot with a plane, direct and democratic approach. There is no room for any tinsel, just a simple representation of the beauty of the subjects.

CREATIVE DIRECTION: C41 STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHER: MAURIZIO ANNESE
PRODUCTION MANAGER: ALESSANDRO DE AGOSTINI POSTPRODUCER: ISABELLA PETRICCA
