A Neon Wedding

I love the idea of inserting a touch of neon into the otherwise so pale wedding photos. I think with all that white you definitely need a splash of color and a strong make up to really make you pop out from the background on your special day.

Abiogenesis collection “12/”13

I´ve been MIA on this blog for a while and the reason for that is that I´ve been working ny butt off trying to finish the first presentation of my thesis project which took place yesterday. We had to present a number of things to explain our concept, our inspiration and our collection. One of the things was to take 10 photos that represent the concept, the feeling we want to convey with our final collection. My inspiration comes from the microscopic images of human cells that I posted earlier and I wanted my photos to give the feeling of cells dividing and interacting, evolving from one stage to another.

So, starting with my concept description, here´s the first part of my thesis project presentation.

Breaking away

“The Charlize Theron story is not supposed to happen. The teenage girl who leaves the farm in South Africa to be a fashion model in Milan does not actually become a fashion model. The fashion model who tries to become a dancer does not get admitted to the prestigious Joffrey Ballet School. The injured ballerina who goes to Hollywood to be an actress doesn’t become an actress. Somewhere along the way, reality intrudes on the dream.
But Theron pulled it off.”

This is the inspiration for my thesis project this year. Microscopic images of human cells. This image above is of a human egg.

Purkinje neurons in your brain, these cells control motor coordination.

Surrealistic chaos

I´m a big fan of surrealism, it plays with your mind and feeds your creativity in such an inspiring way. (And as an overworked and underpaid design student I can totally relate to the sense of chaos portrayed in these photos.)
