"A something in a summer’s day,
 As slow her flambeaux burn away,
 Which solemnizes me.

I adore these photographs by Nick Knight for Vogue in 1995. Some of these images of Shalom Harlow and Amber Valetta were featured within the magazine while others are behind-the-scenes images which have surfaced in recent years. I love the hazy focus, like a half-remembered dream and the series reminds of the Emily Dickinson poem above.
