LIVE YOUR DREAM

On one of the first days of this brand new year 2017 filled with blank pages, i like to share a dreamjob i was lucky to work on by the end of last year. A collaboration with Little Creative Factory, a wonderful childrenswear brand from Barcelona, Spain. Just as last summer we were asked to shoot images of their gorgeous wintercollection. This brand is all about making dreams come true, so with a grateful heart we styled and shot these images.

‘A DIFFERENT VISION ON FASHIONPHOTOGRAPHY’ – exhibition Kunsthal

Last weekend on a stormy autumn sunday i visited the wonderful exhibition of Peter Lindbergh, one of the most influential fashion photographers of the past forty years. The exhibition ‘A Different Vision on Fashion Photography’ is an ode to Lindbergh’s oeuvre from 1978 to the present day. It features more than 220 photographs. This spectacular overview of Lindbergh’s extensive oeuvre also presents exclusive material varying from previously unseen material from personal notes, storyboards, props, polaroids, contact sheets and films to monumental prints, in a large-scale retrospective of the photographer’s work. Ever since i started studying fashion his pure black-white photographs have been my favorites. So all the reason to visit his first ever exhibition in Holland at the ‘Kunsthal’ Rotterdam.

Peter Lindbergh introduced a new realism into photography. His timeless images redefine the norms of beauty. Influenced by the language of film and by playing with the type of the strong, self-willed women. His portraits radiate a certain lack of inhibition and physical grace. This humanist approach and idealization of women set him apart from the other photographers as he prioritizes the soul and the personality. His vision presents them in their pure state, ‘in all honesty’, avoiding all stereotypes as he favours a face with hardly any make-up, bare in a way that enhances the authenticity and the natural beauty of the women he photographs.

As British journalist Suzy Menkes points out “refusing to bow to glossy perfection is Peter Lindbergh’s trademark – the essence of the images that look into each person’s unvarnished soul, however familiar or famous the sitter.”

Summer eve wanderings…

Looking back on June, one of my favorite months of the year, as a beautiful month filled with new adventures and wanderings. Not only in my garden, with the arrival of the beautiful roses with their divine scent and enchanting names as ‘Nina Renaissance’ and ‘Ghislaine de Feligonde’, but also with a wonderful evening wandering through an empty concerthall in Amsterdam. We got the opportunity with 20 other Instagrammers to visit this grand historical building which houses 128 years of classical music history. We got to see the backstage rooms where the conductor has his final moments before entering the personal elevator leading him to the big stage of the main hall and all the musicians of the orchestra rehears with their violin, cello and piano before playing their part of the symphony…

KEEP ON DREAMING…

Sometimes you come across a brand that touches your heart and in case of ‘Little creative factory’ that was exactly what happened. A wonderful childrenswear brand designed by Cristina Fernandez based in Barcelona, Spain. Collections characterised by the beauty of simplicity. Experimental shapes and attention to detail are present in all of her designs, under the banner of ‘less is more’. With nurture and comfort in mind, their clothes are made of natural and hard-wearing fabrics that come from the earth, such as cottons and linens. Textiles that reflect their roots, their very origin, whilst maintaining the sophistication and delicacy that marks the pure beauty of their clothes. All these unique pieces are produced in the heart of Barcelona, always following the philosophy of ‘slow manufacture’, ‘0km’ and ‘less is more’. Always conscientious of the need to work towards building a better world for our small people.

So imagine my joy when i was asked by Cristina to style and shoot images of her new spring/summer 2016 collection. Thank you so much Cristina for this wonderful opportunity. This collaboration is proof that sometimes ideas are not only dreams. On occasion it comes to pass that dreams become reality…
