When different disciplines are mixed together, the dawn of new forms of expression is coming. Sometimes just a simple idea creates refined concepts where both graphics than photography can change identity thanks to “photo-ghraphic” pics. I really love the work of the photographer Ina Jang, it reminds me some experimental art projects I worked on years ago, I stressed the concept of figures disappearing in the background. Ina substitutes paper drops and stripes to part of figures as if to leave our imagination completing the missing shapes.
The work has been realized for the event held at Villa Noailles, the headquarters of the ‘27th International Festival of Fashion and Photography’(April 27-30). Ina’s work is a perfect stage for the different fashion designers invited, its simplicity balance different moods and personalities through soft chromatic backgrounds.
