“One Eye sees, the other feels” – Paul Klee
We wanted to address the poetic content of things in life, and use traditional thoughts in unexpected ways to find fresh emotional connections, and new beauty.
The morning sun silhouettes of queens anne’s lace and olive branches, danced around the humble stone house and the views eastward, this area of Provence is so undeniably gorgeous, our heart closed around a pale colour palette intertwined with soft as skin grey sages and dark leaves.
The girl, efflorescent in the morning sun, blooming and dancing, amongst the beauty of olive foliage – soft velvety and sage coloured. Rosemary, mint and thyme scented the air, the vastness of the pines behind us, an endless necklace draped around her white hands, she spreads her wings of lace and blows gentle kisses with a mouth of heaven.
The mood for this shoot was sensual, intricate, full of sentiment and a little imperfect too. The girl is earthed and melts in a heap of lace amongst the warmth of the olive groves, adding to the air of late summer months, slowly vanishing into the luminosity of the open glade in the wood of pines..
Everything from the homemade fig bread, the apricot coloured mirabelles, and the handwritten letters amongst the garlands of lace. A drop of olive fruit falls from the sun into her dark provencal eyes, her arms of flowers adorned with white snails, and a precious lap of lace. The florals she had gathered from all the meadows and mountain woods, binding them with dreams.
The light wraps her in its gentle flame, the late summer wind is on its way west…..
