Work

Six outfits and six photographies

Essay

Fashion and photography become one in this joint work: the fashion collection is illustrated in the photographs and the photography is quoted in its turn in the fashion, on a number of levels. The seven outfits, all with female first names, are made of a very wide variety of materials, including cotton, linen, cord or netting. A close look at the photographs illustrating the clothes becomes a voyage of discovery: elements of the fashion shows suddenly turn up as prints on the fabrics that have been used. The eye seems to run through a cycle from the foreground to the background, from the dress to the accessories, from the fabrics to the show as a whole. The complex structure of these pictorial levels has strong parallels in the make-up of the individual outfits: the clothes are cut to pieces, dissected, deconstructed and reassembled. The jury is impressed with the concept of the multi-referential interplay of fashion and photography, and with the formal language, which is valid in both fields, and with the balance that is so carefully maintained.
