Alice Cornish in ‘The Past was not that Different from Today’ by Ryan Yoon, The Ground
Posted Aug 02, 2014
Alice Cornish goes face first in ‘The Past Was Not That Different From Today,’ captured by Ryan Yoon for The GROUND. Up close and personal, Yoon embraces the essence of excitability, while embarking on the wonderful world of fashion. Timeless beauty wraps itself up, luring us into a fantastical sense of pain and pleasure. The power of the imagination takes hold, with stunning shots that stay focused on the face. Pretty may serve you well, but it’s the life inside that matters. Modern makeup explodes, as Cornish takes us from angelic to decadent with the blink of an eye. Makeup Artist, Manami Ishikawa, captures fabulous features with defining details lit from within. Evoking the art of opposition, diametrical images inspire, with brows that go from barely there to daringly dark. Spider-like lashes lead the way, leaving behind remnants of resplendent shadows and luring lips. The colors of creation take hold in this powerful piece of eclectic artistry. Care-free & fabulous, (Hairstylist) Katsumi Matsuo frames the face with luscious blonde locks that reminds us that true beauty comes from within. Inspired by Athena Chen’s Beauty Story – Poetic expression explodes, teaming in a torrent of the written word…
The Light of Life Found my Eyes
as Freedom Came to Play
I’m Riding on the Wings of Love
in the Most Delightful Way
Happiness is Coming
Peace is Here to Stay
The Art of Beauty Will Be With Me
Until My Dying Day.
I looked into the light of hope
longing to see your face,
a lonely site of shattered dreams
swept back and held my grace.
Sinking sounds of silence
left me aching and all alone,
a vexing brand of emptiness
found it’s way into my home.
I searched for love to find me
grant relief from all the pain,
a place where hurt would finally leave
and never come again.
A story filled with wonder
a life of myth and lore,
for into the light of love I fell
and wanted never more.
