Ears Eyes Mouth "Knows"

Donnant le visage

"Should you find yourself in Amsterdam in the coming months, make sure to stop by the Foam_Fotografiemuseum for Pretty Much Everything- Photographs 1985 – 2010, an epic retrospective of the last 25 years of photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin’s works. More than 300 works will be on display, including advertisement, portraits and their own photography. It’s sure to be a memorable experience."

Black and white; creative and simple. A play on what collaboration really means. Hair, makeup, and photography co mingling to produce visual mastery. Looking at this publication I instantly thought of Marc Jacobs. The cartoon characters he used in his previous Marc by Marc collections. In addition, the portraits' play on facial distortion is fun. Who needs a nose when you have a bold black lip and whimsical eye sockets?

This form of photography really grabs the eye. Evokes a "playful" emotion and overall lightens the androgynous mood that fashion is known for giving. What I took from these photos: "Let your hair down and give face."

Nothing More.
