If Icarus Were A Woman

This image was shot in Chicago while on a project for Discover Cards. The idea behind it started with a simple question: What if Icarus were a woman? And the answer was this: If Icarus were a woman she would wear macaw wings. They would be big and beautiful and stunningly colored. And they would be made from real feathers, not wax. That way, if she flew too close to the sun, they wouldn’t melt, and she wouldn’t fall. If Icarus were a woman, she would be too smart to do something dumb like that.
