Los Angeles-based fashion photographer Viktorija Pashuta have created numerous concept viral photo shoots that gain worldwide exposure and stirred huge buzz in social media. Famous for her conceptualized series ‘What if Guys Were Social Networks‘, ‘What if Girls Were Internet Browsers‘ and ‘What if Cars Were Supermodels‘ that were published in VOGUE, Esquire, Buzzfeed, Ads of the World, Complex to name, gaining more than 2 billion hits online – she has just released her new project entitled ’11 KIDS AS 11 MUSIC ICONS’ exclusively created for BASIC Magazine #Generation Issue.

For the first time working with the kids, Viktorija has added an extra fashion flavor to the little models and possibly have discovered new young superstars! ‘It was so much fun working with the kids, – says Viktorija, – as they are so energetic and spontaneous, you can see true excitement in their eyes and that energy really feeds me as an artist! They all got into their characters so well – that was truly impressive’.

Viktorija ads that, “For these types of photo projects, where every little detail counts – we had to create certain clothing pieces from the scratch, like the iconic David Bowie’s British Flag coat, created by multi talented stylist and designer Oye Decova”. “Having on board such a talented glam team of professionals (Einat Dan, Bethy Mireles, Barbara Yniguez, Chelsea Conklin and Marla Moore) helped us to transform shy kids into iconic music figures”
