juxtaposition 29.03/8.11

While shooting in the gorgeous glass greenhouse at Kew (see previous post), there was something about the light, the composition, that reminded me of the Armani press day: the way I had composed the shots, the cropping.. the light. It felt a bit Paris in the 30s, bit Cartier Bresson. My homage.

I am always interested in the relationship between beauty in nature, and beauty made by the hands of men. Or women.

Shot at Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, on 29.08.11, and Armani press day, 29.03.11. Thank you to Frida Kristensson, representing Kew, and Karmen Wijnberg, from Armani.
