Bello with Monica Menezes

This series of photos accompanies Monica Menez's film 'Bello'. The pictures further develop the story, dancing around the bizarre power dynamics within a love triangle.
“I love the old Hollywood dance movies and have always wanted to work with dancers. 'Bello' is funny and also a little bit evil – and it is about love,” says Monica Menez in an interview.
Created for Leica's S Magazine, she shot both film and stills on a Leica SL.
Our Stuttgart team loved giving the finishing touches to these saucy and stylish images.
