One of my all-time favourite images by Mert & Marcus published in Pop FW 2001 as “Death Valley”. I want to share a quote that, for me, is synecdochical of my entire approach to life and is captured by this photograph as it evokes much more than its parts:
“The passion of an aesthete is absolutely inaccessible to the man of ordinary concept who calls a dog a dog and a spoon a spoon.”
- R. Huelsenbeck, En Avant Dada.
These past few weeks have been defined by early mornings, on-location (no thanks to GoogleMaps), hair & makeup, hours of set-up for the few seconds flicker of a shutter – in other words, photo shoots. Never in my life did I think I’d be part of so many. The behind-the-scenes WERQ that goes into every picture you see, fleeting, in a glossy magazine, is mind-boggling. I have so much more respect for models and stylists who unfortunately get the stigma of ‘having it easy’ – trust me, their jobs are probably the hardest.
