Elle Mexico is determined to continue working throughout COVID-19 by finding creative and safe ways to do so. For their latest issue and cover story, a photographer took to using a drone to capture the editorial from above, while respecting social distancing guidelines.
Unable to get close up to his subject with his DSLR, photographer Santiago Arau resourcefully used a drone in order to capture the magazine’s latest imagery. Renown Mexican model Mariana Zaragoza posed within the confines of her own home in Guadalajara, while Arau flew the drone above.
Where styling is concerned, Zaragoza dressed herself with the advice of clothing stylist Raúl Alvarez, taking on responsibility for her own hair and makeup for the shoot.
We believe that as media we cannot remain silent in the face of this situation, but we also know that we all want to be entertained. It’s up to us to turn it around. For this reason we wanted to make a cover that could preserve the essence of fashion while taking up the challenge of respecting the distance measures.
