Cut and Paste

Tomorrow is a special non-working day in Taguig City because of its anniversary of city-hood. Yay! And to kill some time, Here is an idea. 


Cut and Paste

This age old technique used in making collages since we were kids is being employed in a fashion spread for Dazed&Confused magazine. For its December 2010 issue, Photographer Damien Blottiere and Dazed's Robbie Spencer captures Calvin Klein's elegant take on minimalism in this shoot.

It features models Christian Ochsenfahrt (Major) and Victoire Macon Dauxerre (Elite). 

Here are more pictures.

Plus a video. Not necessarily a behind-the-scene look from the shoot, the video is another platform where they had taken the creative idea of the shoot into a movement.

In the words of the photographer, 

"After the shoot and the collage process we did with Robbie, I wanted to bring a movement to those fixed images. Working on a collage is like painting but using scissors and a cutter. I cut the lines, I build shapes on paper and faces. The video is trying to reflect the whole process, from the emotion you got while shooting a model to what I'm searching for underneath, following features. You have to hitch the skin to find sensitivity".

Here's the video.

So, grab some scissors and get cutting. Then, grab some glue and get pasting! LOL.
