The Elegant Bull

  • Holly Lavelle

An editorial from my ongoing zodiac series, where I research and interpret each star sign alongside the astrological calendar, working only with creatives who were born within that season. This shoot explores the strong and stable earth sign Taurus, known for their love of relaxation and all things luxury. Whilst they can sometimes be lazy and materialistic, they make up for it in their patience, power and courageousness. Featured in PAP magazine.
