Japanese photographer Kimiko Yoshida

Image
Japanese photographer Kimiko Yoshida creates self-portraits that transports you through a different time. With each character, and with every costume, she transposes the significance. Kimiko, the woman in her own portraits, blends in with the background, merely being the supporting element,  make-up is used to make her disappear rather than stand out.  With each character, and with every costume, there is no digital editing of images, only make up and direct shooting.  Using the same lighting, setting and framing, and always using herself as the person behind each portrait, Kimiko's draws the focus away from the subject and onto the act of self-transformation.  
Kimiko's preparation for each photograph is a transition, a timeless space of infinite layers, a metamorphosis journey into nothingness, where the search of identity does not exist.

Photographer Gregor Torz's Moda

When Gregor Törzs finds something he feels the inner longing to hold it against the light.

Agnieszka Osipa Costume Design

Image
I have recently come across Agnieszka’s Osipa’s work and I have no words to describe her jaw dropping creations. Her costumes are portrayed in a dream - like visual representation of various parts of folklore culture around the world and ways to revive them within the fashion context.  Part of Agnieszka’s Osipa’s identity as a designer is to use recycled, industrial materials and a combination of handcrafted religious trims. Different manufacturing processes all come together with handmade techniques and materials for something historical and old, through the exploration of traditional arts and crafts and their projection to contemporary aesthetics.
