For8BW

“When we are small children, just- arrived- in- the -planet people, we know things which we gradually forget as we grow up. This is why I chose to open Forgotten Paradise with images of my children when they were babies: There was absolutely no limit to the fun and the creativity they could experience, no boundaries for growth and development, there was absolutely nothing wrong in life, the adventure had just started and it was to be fully enjoyed. This is clear when you watch babies; there is the constant drive to discover and to learn. That is paradise, children’s paradise can often be polluted by adults, yet during the initial first years of life, chances are that kids will still remember and hold on to the fact that their potential is limitless, this is how we are born, this is how we are made. This is how we are supposed to stay. The main thing was to find beautiful picturesque spots to create striking frames where to place our story, we got some good ones but I was left feeling that I needed to spend much more time on this task, days, even months of taking photographs in locations with my cast, before filming. Finding the perfect image frame by frame. It is a crucial necessity of spend time and give as much thought as passion to image composition, finding immaculate frames that reveal the magic of light and color blended with mood and concept during the process of creation. Art is a mixture of hard work, intuition, luck and magic all driven by passion or love which are to many effects one and the same thing.”

Horst: Photographer of Style

Art & Culture, Fashion

Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 6th September 2014- 4th January 2015

‘Your photographs are sheer genius and delight my soul … each one is perfect by itself.’ Main Rousseaur Bocher (1890-1976)

These were the words expressed by the famous haute couture designer, decades after Horst P. Horst (1906-1999) produced his most acclaimed photograph Mainbocher Corset (1939). The picture, erotic and mysterious, reveals the photographer’s classical sculpture influences.

One of the greatest fashion photographers of the 20th century, Horst P. Horst, captured the image of Hollywood’s brightest stars “the new royalty” during the 1930s, amongst them where Rita Heyworth, Bette Davis, Vivian Leigh, Noël Coward, Ginger Rogers, Marline Dietrich and Joan Crawford. During the Post war period, he photographed every First Lady of the USA.

A major retrospective featuring a total of 250 images from all stages of his highly influential 60-year career, is on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. The exhibition celebrates Horst work at the heart of the fashion industry in Paris and New York. It uses a selection of Haute Couture garments, film, and magazines, offering an exciting insight into the world of glamour that surrounded the life of the visual artist.

The German born American citizen was the creator of more than 90 Vogue covers and collaborated with Coco Chanel for several decades. Photography, design, theatre, fashion, art and high society were the world he inhabited, while he played and important role in shaping the photographic aesthetic of his era.
Acclaimed for his dramatic use of light he became one of the first photographers to perfect new color techniques in the 1930s.
The exhibition displays vintage photographs from the archive of Paris Vogue alongside garments by Channel, Lavin, Molyneux and Vionnet.

The Surrealist art movement looked into ways of interpreting the life turning to dreams and the unconscious for inspiration and expression.
During the 1930s Surrealism left its radical avant-garde roots to serve for the transformation and innovation in the fields design, fashion, advertising, theatre and film.
Horst’s photographs of this period feature mysterious, whimsical and surreal elements combined with his classical aesthetic. The exhibition explores his studies and collaborations with Salvador Dali and Elsa Schiapareli.

“Tus fotografías son pura genialidad y deleitan mi alma … cada una es perfecta en sí misma”. Main Rousseaur Bocher (1890-1976)

Las palabras expresadas por el famoso diseñador de alta costura, décadas después de Horst P. Horst (1906-1999) produjese la aclamada fotografía “Corsé Mainbocher” (1939). La imagen, erótica y misteriosa, revela las influencias de escultura clásica en el fotógrafo.

Durante la década de 1930 Horst P. Horst, fotografió a las estrellas más brillantes de Hollywood ” la nueva realeza “, Rita Heyworth, Bette Davis, Vivian Leigh, Noël Coward, Ginger Rogers, Merlin Dietrich y Joan Crawford. Durante el período de la post-guerra el fotógrafo captura la imagen de cada una de las Primera Dama de los EE.UU.

El ciudadano estadounidense de origen alemán fue el creador de más de 90 portadas de Vogue y colaboró ​​con Coco Channel durante varias décadas.

Aclamado por su uso dramático de la luz se convirtió en uno de los primeros fotógrafos en perfeccionar nuevas técnicas de color.

La exposición en al VAM explora los estudios y colaboraciones de Horst con Salvador Dalí y Elsa Schiapareli.

Ray Ceaser Art

Art & Culture

When I first encountered with Ray’s work a clear definition of art arose in me for the very first time. I was instantly seduced and trapped in the soul of the artist readily desiring to remain captive in his world, eternally in awe and forever wondering in the mystery it evoked. The word obsession loses its meaning when it comes to my passion for Ray’s art.

London born Ray Ceaser, (1958) is a visual surrealist artist and digital painter who resides in Toronto, Canada.
After graduating from the Ontario College of Art & Design, Caesar worked in the Art and Photography department of the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, there he documented various child inflictions in a diverstiy of sketches. This experience was the beginning of his inspiration. He started creating surreal landscapes and characters with detailed and compelling features.

Most people think he paints little girls, to this he says….

“Actually they are not all little girls. Many of them are little boys too such as the Prince of Truth, Castor and Pollux, Harvest and many of them are boys in dresses ….”

…”.People think I paint pictures of children… I don’t! I paint pictures of the human soul… that alluring image of the hidden part of ourselves… some call them ghosts or spirits but I see them as the image of who we truly are, made manifest with all the objects and bruises that filled the story of each life.”

“My work is mainly about the Archetype of the Divine Child… the Christ figure in all its forms, as to me this represents spiritual growth. The children in my work are actually a form of self portrait, and as an artist the feminine is a more accurate picture of the nature of the soul… of my soul… that which gives birth to creation.”

Beautiful. Full of meaning and expression, pure and alive art… I’ve fallen in Love..

Cuando me encontré por primera vez con la obra de Ray Caeser la definición clara y concisa de lo que es ‘arte’ surgió en mí por primera vez. Caeser me sedujo al instante, me atrapó en su alma, me dejó deseosa de permanecer cautiva en su mundo.

El londinense Ray Caesar (1958) es un artista visual surrealista y pintor digital que reside en Toronto, Canadá.

Después de graduarse en el Ontario College of Art & Design, Caesar trabajó en el Departamento de Arte y Fotografía del Hospital infantil de Toronto. Allí documentó diversas enfermedades con bocetos de niños enfermos. Esta experiencia fue el comienzo de su inspiración, empezó a crear paisajes surrealistas y personajes con características sublimes.

“Pinto cuadros del alma humana … la seductora imagen de la parte oculta en el ser … algunos los llaman fantasmas o espíritus, pero yo los veo como la imagen de lo que realmente somos, esta se manifiesta con todos los objetos y contusiones que llenan la historia de cada vida. ” Ray Caeser
