(from fashion gone rogue)
Fell in love with this editorial immediately. It's deliberate, purposefully disassociative, and ultimately anxiety-inducing. Her coldly premeditated outfits beg the question, why is she alone in her home, dressed to the nines, seemingly with nowhere to go? It's this classic "caged woman" idea, and plays on our voyeuristic tendencies. These photos are so meticulously lit and composed, they almost feel like carefully constructed dioramas...albeit with a heavy dose of white-knuckle calculation. Reminds me a lot of the erotic work by another of my favorite photographers (and a good friend), Chas Ray Krider. His work explores the fetish of transient sex by way of motel rooms. He also primarily utilizes stiff lighting and angles, cooly aloof models, and crime scene-esque tableaus that feel just as pressure-ridden are they are sensual.
