In a world full of wonders and fairytale scenes, we take the viewer to our experience of this world. The perception of an image can be in a fraction of a second; one incorporates an image, but that one second must be catchy and take you into a whole new world. The girlish innocence combined with a certain form of imperfection is what we are looking for. An image has to tell something, you have to take it with you, and it’s different for everyone. Our images are dreamy but refer to the here and now. The eternal desire for aesthetics in imperfection is what makes the images what they are. The research into aesthetics is central, the untamed dream, the research into the animal in man, raw and at the same time gentle. The photos are not correct, have a certain form of imperfection, they are a beautiful aesthetic image, but it raises questions, that’s what we strive for.”
‘A Modern Fairytale’ under the guidance of the 7 deadly sins.
I used to believe that I could become a princess, that my life would become a fairytale, later if I were a grown up ….
Later I discovered that my naivety gave way to speed, emptiness and an overall sense of loneliness and indefinability.
Fairy tales are there to believe in, life is something you should believe in but what if you lose faith in life, you will fall into the 7 deadly sins, fairy tales will make room for the truth. What if life goes so fast that you automatically expire in the 7 deadly sins? The emptiness, loneliness and speed that this society brings with it are filled with gluttony, greed, vanity, lust, anger, laziness and jealousy. Because of this fact one arrives in a state of being in which one lives its own fairy tale, ‘A modern fairytale.’
