Appearance of Things: life and death in Jocelyn Lee’s photography

Appearance of Things: life and death in Jocelyn Lee’s photography

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

Jocelyn Lee is a New York photographer, on her website she introduces her shots with a quote from the French philosopher Maurice Merlau-Pony:

“Visible and mobile, my body is a thing among things; it’s caught in the fabric of the world, and its cohesion is that of a thing. But, because it moves itself and sees, it holds things in a circle around itself.”

The protagonist represented in the photographic project “The Appearance of Things” is the life cycle, which describes the stages of birth, flowering and death; but the true essence of his story is the totality of nature, of which the human being is a part. The artist adds about her project:

“Attempts to access this tactile and optical experience and explores how we are enmeshed in an embodied and ephemeral world. All life, including our human form and being, passes through stages of birth, blossoming and death.”

All of us are in fact trapped within the landscape: the women in her photographs are naturally engulfed in the natural context and convey a great sense of freedom.

Tim Walker will held a solo exhibition in London

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Photography

The personal exhibition of famous fashion photographer Tim Walker will be held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London: at this museum in 2019, there will be many interesting initiatives dedicated to the fashion world and all that revolves around this. It starts with a retrospective on Dior, with more than 500 items and very rare high fashion items on display: it is estimated that it will be an event on par, if not superior, to the incredible exhibition on McQueen, Savage Beauty, of 2015. In addition, it will be a retrospective of the miniskirt inventor, Mary Quant, who will focus on the years between 1955 and 1975.

The personal exhibition dedicated to the photographer Tim Walker will be the last moment of these events dedicated to fashion, in fact, the artist is the creator of original aesthetic visual codes, that for over 25 years has taken the faces of fashion with an unmistakable style.

Waiting for more details about the event, we enjoy Tim’s incredible talent in our gallery, stay tuned!

Janice Sung’s fashion illustration

Janice Sung’s fashion illustration

Claudia Fuggetti · 2 years ago · Art

How to combine the passion for fashion, nature and beauty?

The illustrator Janice Sung thought of it, capturing real female icons and transforming them into models of the fashion system. The apparent luxury dictated by the poses, make-up and clothes worn by her female characters opposed the bursting nature of the backgrounds that make you think of the twentieth-century paintings. This fusion decontextualizes the models and transports them into an atemporal dimension, where women appear to us as real dolls, each representing a microcosm, a style and an original type of personality.

We can recognize Marilyn Monroe, Millie Bobby Brown, Natalie Portman and Audrey Tautou in the role of Amélie Poulain among the feminine icons mentioned by Janice: perhaps this need to represent many different types of women is a constant search for a model to inspire, for identifying and recognizing herself or simply a way to represent the beauty of the female world in its variety.

And what icon do you prefer?

Strandbeests, Theo Jansen’s gigantic moving sculptures

Strandbeests, Theo Jansen’s gigantic moving sculptures

Giulia Guido · 2 years ago · Art

Strandbeests are the moving sculptures created and built by Theo Jansen, a famous artist and engineer.

As the name suggests, Strandbeests, which in Dutch means beach animals, have made the appearance of animals. Making them more realistic is the fact that thanks to a mechanism specifically designed for the project, these sculptures will be fun and long for the beaches of Holland.

Since 1990, Theo has been experimenting with mechanical engineering techniques, building skeletons of plastic pipes and managing to make them move. The way in which the kinetic energy of moving data acts, thus creating the ability to live alone.
