Iekeliene Stange in ‘Re-fashion Fetishism’ by Max Snow for Purple Magazine
Posted Feb 09, 2013
Iekeliene Stange engages in the ultimate act of self-love in ‘Re-fashion Fetishism’ by Max Snow for the S/S 2013 issue of Purple Magazine. Lost in the recesses of reflection, Stange takes a journey of self-discovery into the depths of her desires. A strange dream bordering on delusion, Snow’s haunting images depict the dangerous line between love and obsession. Shame masquerading as seduction, this evocative editorial captures the imbalance of power when self-love is trapped by the shallow soul of heartache. Locked inside ourselves we leave our secret wants unanswered only to evolve into lifeless forms of hollow aching. Dark holes of shallow narcissism, they take over like a slow burn. “It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.”― C. JoyBell C.
