A KALTBLUT exclusive. Creative Direction and Photography by Julia Alexandra S. Styling by Andrew Christian. “I was always curious about people, I wanted to hear their stories, to understand who they are and what they have to say. As an artist, I made it my goal to give a voice to those who are unheard, those who suffer the consequences of societal expectations, by always aiming to start a dialogue on identity and self-exploration. ‘Heavy Blonde’ allowed me through a series of self-portraits to look at misconceptions and myths that surround blonde women. The project is based on testimonials from anonymous participants that share their thoughts or a piece of advice on the subject. A romantic visual narration mixed with humor and scribbled words, infused by the nostalgia of the 60s”.
