Emily Nathan's Sporting Life for Ritz-Carlton
Emily Nathan and Ritz-Carlton continued their long-standing partnership with a ten-page editorial by the photographer in the luxury hotel's summer magazine. Titled "En Plein Air," Nathan's images set a warm-weather wardrobe against a backdrop of outdoor activities – canoeing, tennis, and reading the newspaper on a bench beside a Prada golf bag; the latter, our idea of sport.
Nathan and her crew traveled to Reynolds Plantation, Georgia, for the shoot last spring. "While we couldn't quite go in the lake yet, the infinity pool [at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge] is kept at perfect temperature," she said. "[Being the] lifestyle girl that I am, I jumped in with the model, Angela, and walked some laps while shooting (and snuck in a few laps of my own)."
