More Obsessions

Anna C. Invites Us Inside the Tim Walker Wild Mind Ride

Anna Cleveland invites us to come hide inside the Tim Walker mind ride, in ‘Spirits Within‘ for Vogue Italia, February 2018. Walker asks that we venture into another realm. This is far beyond the normal editorial route, here we experience the mind/body blend. Experimental artistry is meant to open your mind to another time. Escaping the mediocrity of everyday life, our spirits ride free on the conceptual landscape. 

Made of Water, Air & Land We Touch Ocean... Feel Sand

Yoon Young Bae spreads her wings in ”Madame Butterfly’ captured by Txema Yeste for Numéro #190, February 2018. Through the quiet corners of the mind we explore Nature’s fertile finest in the glory of the divine. Art evokes a sense of spirit rising. To know oneself is to really see that to love yourself you must fight to be free. These works aren’t merely ones to be ogled by the ocular arena, they are to be consumed by every aspect of human consciousness. 

Kaia Becomes "The Swan" in a Story of Fantasy Rising

Kaia Gerber comes into her own in “The Swan” shot by Steven Meisel for Vogue UK, March 2018. The branches of her family tree are rooted in the industry. Born into beauty, Supermodel Cindy Crawford, is her mother. Kaia grabs hold of her genetic wings, allowing them to send her high over the scarlet sky, only to fall into the arms of tomorrow. This girl may look like her gorgeous mother, but she is a singular sensation. 

Emmanuelle Alt Gives Us Ladies of the 80's "Colorama"

Emmanuelle Alt gives us the ladies of the 80’s in “Colorama” by David Sims for Vogue Paris, February 2018. Take a tour of fashions past with over-the-top styles that speak to the gregarious gorgeousness of the 1980’s. Beauty Shakin’ Beauty has just begun taking fashion to the heights of vintage fun. This dynamic editorial captures the chaos of change and the decade that brought it to the forefront. 

Daphne Groeneveld Breaks Thru Proverbial Fourth Wall

Daphne Groeneveld breaks through the fourth wall in this compelling tale of art and access by Greg Kadel for Let’s Panic Magazine #4, 2018. Art displays in the most fantastical ways as we watch the story unfold. We are able to see the evolution of the female animal appear. With an exquisite mix of avant-garde application and natural expression, this editorial evokes a kind of neo-natural approach to artistic exposure. 

Open Your Mind and You'll Find the Spirit to Fly On High

Assa ignites a sense of serenity as we feel our spirits rise by Harley Weir for Vogue Italia, January 2018. We have entered a period of our existence that doesn’t demand alot of background noise. We don’t need to distract or overwhelm, we need only to honor our inner fire. The Female Spirit is Here to Say, We’ve Taken Our Place and We Aren’t Going Away. Here we witness something that may seem subtle, or worse, not loud enough to get the attention required to deem it successful. 

Is the Mask We Wear Our Truth or Is It the Skin Below?

Georgie Hobday exposes her many layers in “X-Ray” by Rankin for Hunger Magazine. In one of the most prophetic passages I read by poet E. E. Cummings was, “The greatest battle we face as human beings is the battle to protect our true selves from the self the world wants us to become.” By taking pieces of that conceptual treatment and mixing it with Rankin’s unique view of things, we have access to what I call ~ The Rankin-Reality.  

Let a Bright Blue Lamp Shade Light Up Your NEW YEAR

Sarah Fraser transforms before our eyes as she lets her inner spirit fly, in “Métamorphose” by Sølve Sundsbø for Numero Magazine, December/January 2017/18. A tale of two sides come to be as her calm demeanor plays in perfect harmony. Split right down the center, this otherworldly editorial looks at the duality of humanity. Each somber shot brims with raw anticipation, as the bifurcation of duality is met with a fusion of ambiguity. 

Ine Neefs Rides Waves of Bright Light ~ Sølve Sundsbø

Ine Neefs invites us to ride through the light by Sølve Sundsbø for Numéro #189, December/January 2017/18. Travelling at the speed of light we feel the zeal as the intensity starts to rise. In through the out door up through the down, over the top around and around. In the majesty of mythic lands there lives another world, where all of life’s mysteries are waiting to be heard. As the end of the year comes ever closer still, we find that we are blinded by the light. 

Saskia de Brauw... is at One With Her Soul, Body & Mind

Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler use clothes as a canvas in “Clothes for Heroes” captured by Willy Vanderperre for AnOther Magazine, A/W ’17. In the tedious tending of tomorrow’s truth… is where we find Saskia de Brauw leading the crew. She captivates on the cover followed by an editorial that fills in the blanks. We stare on high under a cloud strewn sky looking at a picture of time passing by.
