Many of us have experienced times in our lives where we feel alone, vulnerable, and deserted—but while those places might seem desolate, it is through those situations that we discover how strong we are. This photoshoot, titled “Tree and the Desert” by photographer Dali Ma, showcases that journey of exploration, rebellion, and self-discovery.
Tree and the Desert is a carefully-crafted spread that provides insights into the wanderer’s state of being. The designs featured are from Hapa Clothing, a company that weaves edgy and urban-chic styles together in a way that reflects the diverse SoCal community. In this photoshoot, the use of bold floral pieces and bright jumpsuits help contrast beauty with bleakness. These pieces stand out from the barren backdrop and are a reminder that life still grows in the desert. While the landscape is vast, the details draw you into moments that suggest a subtle sensual vulnerability that is both daring and rebellious. Using light, depth, stark landscapes and vivid statement pieces, this collection focuses on the tension between being self-aware yet confident, alone and yet exposed.
