Investigating the past, #2 Edwige
Investigating the Past is an ongoing series i started in 2010. It is a portrait of ex-models and past icons i met over the years. The focus of this project is the shift in identity inherent to aging beauty. My research favors a dream-like and esthetic approach in the attempt of developing a visual vocabulary recognizable as a testament to the past, and it’s influence on present imagery. This second installment of the project is a series i shot of Edwige Belmore, aka The Queen of Punk of New York and muse to Pierre & Gilles.
