Falling in Love .. I seriously did , this photographer talks femininity ,in the most pure and essential way , creating in your head a loop of reflections about our obsession of perfection..
To me this exposition at the Galleria Carla Sozzani ( Corso Como 10 ) , is a discovery , I would have never expected it to be so powerful and evoking . It raised in my memory the time when I was a little girl playing on threes and fields ( often covered in dust or mud ) in the hot southern Italian summer ,with nothing on if not a little cotton dress . I used to stare at my hands feet and legs quite a lot before coming back home to explain my to my patient mom that I spent the afternoon on a cherry three eating fruits ! Some of those pictures are like an adaptation of my best memories , Mother Nature was my driving Spirit when I was a kid , and I am sure you will find her presence in those pictures as well..
VIVIANNE SASSEN – SHE
Sassen is a Amsterdam citizen that studied fashion design and photography , she created amazing artworks during her career , a retrospective of 17 years of her fashion work, In and Out of Fashion, opened at Huis Marseille Museum for Photography, Amsterdam, in 2012.
Most of the imagines communicates a sense of sweetness , There is It is also a metaphor of female fertility, during the time, from the young age of a child running in fields to more mature concept of woman growing with her body and soul , with physical metamorphosis as well .
The images are Enigmatic ,travelling with no borders between the life and the death of women , between wakefulness and sleep, awareness and blindness. An amazing atmosphere, showing to the public moments of daily life immersed in a strange wild but still minimal dimension.
For my outfit of the day I planned something simple but evocative , a cozy perforated sweater , blue denim , fishnet socks and Blue Lips ..
The inspiration for the blue shade came while I was in the MAC store , make up heaven basically , I thought I wanted to create a color palette made of cold tones , Lavender hair , light blue denim , gray sweater , red eyeshadows.. sooo Blue lips it is ! At first, I felt like an elegant dead mermaid ,and I loved it even more !
