The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter

There is a book of the same name by Carson McCullers. The story takes place in a small town in the South in the late 1930s, and follows the lives of five main characters over the course of about a year. One of the characters is a quiet and sensitive young girl, Mick, who cherishes a seemingly hopeless dream of becoming a concert pianist while searching for beauty in her small town. I'm a huge fan of black and white imagery, and I think this editorial depicts her story rather beautifully. It's an oldie, but a goodie; and I love the styling. Enjoy!

The book sound awfully good, I hope the main character fulfilled her longtime dream. The pictures are beautiful and the model is stunning, loving her hair.

This is one the most striking editorials I have ever seen. It has a stark beauty and wistfulness to it that is nothing short of genius and tells the story perfectly. Great find and interesting post as per usual. X
