Arty-Fact: David LaChapelle [photographer, music video and film director] suggested to Markus he photograph Daphne Guinness for the Keep A Child Alive campaign, where Markus photographed stars in coffins. Daphne’s elegance, sensuality, and vulnerability made her coffin shot stand out among the other stars.
Fascinated by the English socialite and fashion designer, Markus found a new opportunity to shoot her for the London Sunday Times. The photoshoot took place at the stunning gothic synagogue, the Angel Orensanz Foundation for Contemporary Art. The team developed a great rapport with their new muse, who showed them complete trust. Daphne was not phased for a moment when they asked if she would be comfortable being photographed with a giant albino python - just as she hadn’t flinched when asked to step into a casket for Keep A Child Alive.
Photoshoots with Daphne followed throughout 2011 and 2012 in New York and Paris. The resulting images were published by magazines worldwide and used in beauty and fashion ad campaigns.
