She is a Phenom. A Powerful Sight. A Beautiful Bird. She’s a Woman in Flight. A Heroine On High. Her Passion Ignites. She Never Fears a Fall. Light is Her True Might. Don’t worry dear one she feeds upon the sun, a fantastical female she is artistry undone. Living and learning to weather the storm, a fighter of the sky, she is ethereally adorned. Her body is a temple primed to perform, this is evolution in the making as works long to be transformed. 

Saskia, Guinevere, Dilone and Achok by Vincent van de Wijngaard for Beauty Papers S/S 2018

Son of the River God, Cephissus, in Greek Mythology ~ Narcissus ~ was a hunter known for his great beauty. It is said that Narcissus was attracted to a pool site where he came upon his own reflection in the water and fell deeply in love with it. Unable to leave his fair complexion behind, he stared at it until he died. This takes the term “Narcissistic” to an extreme. But, to understand it’s life-altering potential, is to understand the power of obsession…

Vanity is played out in poetic form as Saskia de Brauw, Guinevere Van Seenus, Dilone & Achok come together in ‘The Narcissism Myth‘ shot by Vincent van de Wijngaard for Beauty Papers, S/S 2018.

This has nothing to do with what we consider the limitations of being underwater, rather, it is about the art of discovery. Floating ever deeper still she gives herself over to the aquatic energy of life’s spiritual side.

Vittoria Ceretti in “On With the Show” by Luigi & Iango For Vogue Germany July 2018

Vittoria Ceretti plays in powdered snow as she goes “On With the Show” by Luigi & Iango For Vogue Germany July 2018. Fantasy is on fertile ground as artistry erupts in semi-sonic surround. Making the transition from stiff mannequin to a woman of walking/taking wonder. I begin to imagine Vittoria as a rogue doll separated from her stringed connections. Caught in the stagecraft of ventriloquy, she fairs quite a show being one with the role.

Artful in their approach ~ open to all possibilities. We feel in them the spirit to fly.

Julia Bergshoeff takes us inside the far reaches of the mind in this two-part series, “En Tierra Hostil” by Txema Yeste for Vogue Spain, June 2018. Outside the linear lines lives a place of utter excess. Art is an expression of this transient export. The psyche of the senses leads us to the center of the soul, where wisdom and perception collide. It is here that the sentient pleasures of life linger and the silent powers of the world unite.
