The photographer’s word

After the challenging issue #9 dedicated to War, in this issue #10 dedicated to Peace, the fashion story was not less challenging, as we had to shoot the Peace concept.

The idea was to work on the theme of “inner peace”. At the very early stage, we chose to shoot some iconic characters that can obviously personify the “inner peace”: the Nurse – the healing Peace, the Mother – the loving Peace, the Angel and the Holy Mary represented as a spiritual Queen – the spiritual Peace.

The more I was thinking about that concept, the more I was drawn into the Renaissance-painting universe. The Renaissance Arts is very linked to spirituality and has been very inspiring for this particular fashion story. As a tribute to the Renaissance masters, I shot my “Annunciation”, which has been the most represented scene in Renaissance-painting universe. In addition, some references to Botticelli are also hidden in our fashion story…
