Freedom is my Fashion

My new documentary project, "Freedom is my Fashion," is mediation and a dialog on the self-found philosophy behind clothes choices or rejection of fashion-related "dogmas" for young adults outside of the binary. I asked each of my models to share with me their thoughts on what fashion is or isn't for them, and what factors shaped and morphed their current way of clothes selection and presentation. - Angelika Kollin

Botticelli Garden

This photo story was inspired by the painting of Sandro Botticelli “Primavera”, which represents a large number of female beauty standards in Renaissance Florence.

Simonetta Vespucci was "the woman” of Quattrocento Florence, considered one of the most beautiful women in the city.

For this project we found a young model who represents the modern style of natural beauty, still following the Renaissance's standards.

Our Photo project remains with the Renaissance values: the idea of love, fertility, and the arrival of spring.

A Darker Shade

Who are we and how many different aspects, hues, does our personality holds? Is there a defined age at which we discover exactly who WE ARE, or is it rather a lifelong journey? Getting to know oneself requires to not only explore the so called happy and positive sides/emotions, but as well (often with great reluctance) to take an honest look and inventory of what Carl Jung called our shadows. There is no good or bad when it comes to our inner world, our feelings.

Once upon a time the gentle breath of the sea will cover you with its power and thousands of colored dreams will arise in your head.

Water Formula

Through the universe, space and time, the truth sparkles that our ancestors were aquatic creatures. Contrary to the classical theory of evolution according to Darwin, the call of the sea flows in us, and we, despite our reason and foundations, gain incredible energy just by touching the surface of the water. What is this feeling, another invisible force that attracts us to the waves, like gravity, or maybe an eternal passion to know something so different from our world? Only one thing is known, this is the call of the heart, and it is as necessary to satisfy this copulation with water as it is to breathe.
The aquatic theory of the origin of man was formed relatively recently, but its elements can be found in every culture of all times: these are the Egyptian fish goddesses, and the sea maidens of legends and myths of the peoples of Europe. And even the appeal of artists to the undines hints to us what secrets of origin emerge through the perception of sensitive creators.
There are quite a lot of prerequisites for the formation of this view, put forward by Alistair Hardy in 1960: this is the diving reflex of mammals, and underwater structures erected by the human hand, and even gill slits in human embryos.
Lovers, creators, mermaids-oddly enough, they carry not just a piece of the divine essence, but also the memory of the past time.
Is it possible to find an antibiotic that allows you to cure cravings for the sea? Through time, through art and love, we can remember everything. You just need to feel and remember. Feel it…
So is all this a poet's fantasy, or a hazy silhouette of the beginning of the beginning?
