Calm in The Chaos - Art photographs by Russell James

Internationally acclaimed fashion photographer Russell James teamed up with Japanese supermodel Tao Okamoto and designer Donna Karan for a series of art photographs titled Calm in The Chaos, which will be auctioned in Singapore during the Audi Fashion Festival to raise funds for Mercy Relief's efforts in Japan.

James, famous for his exclusive work with Victoria’s Secret and appearances as guest photographer on several seasons of America’s Next Top Model, shot the monochrome photographs in New York a week ago and they are now on display at the Tent@Ngee Ann City. As if reflecting on the Japanese tragedy, Tao appears meditative, at time praying. The most haunting image is a close up of her eyes, with clever make up and lighting making them almost teary.
