Photographer Ian Boddy and stylist India Shepherd create Venus Revisited where models Ava, Bella, Che and Kate at Boss Models.SA depict the contrast between old and new, and what it means in this modern age.

Shot on the shores of Cape-Town, the story is translated into an ethereal visual display of the freshness of youth, blended with timeless garments sourced from Better Half. Boddy explains that, "It was fun to play with the time lapse between todays youth and pre=loved vintage garments. Not to mention how previously loved items still carry that feeling of love today, and how they’ve stood the test of time, worn on models half their age."
