JOELIX in Llamas Valley
Only 2 months ago I discovered the 1st English issue of this beautiful e-mag from Lithuania, called “Llamas’ Valley”. Which is about perfect places and imperfect people. Born in Lithuania, and now exploring the world. For the spring issue Llamas' Valley asked me to style one picture with a spring theme! It came out today and you'll find my contribution on page 18/19.
With some fresh hyacinth bulbs and daffodils imported from Holland, a bowl of eggs (how cliché!), a fluo pink tea towel by Hay, my favorite Marimekko Räsymatto plate, some freshly picked palm tree seeds from the South of France, my new Whistler tea pot from Alma Gémea (via Gosto) and a new photograph by my dad, I put together a pink composition.
Very honored to be featured in such a nice publication. Thanks Alge!
The only thing missing in my opinion was a good documentary about his life and work, as I crossed many lost visitors not knowing who Jean Paul Goude is and what they were looking at. However there was a video showing brief impressions of his projects and some shorter videos like the hilarious "How to improve your body proportions by adding shoulder pads, 30cm heels and a dental bridge" from the 70's and of course some Grace Jones music videos.
Some of my favorites were the series of Naomi Campbell and Björk. The images are so well executed, with such eye for detail and love for proportions, the human body&identity, colors and aesthetics, it's almost overwhelming. If you haven't seen it already, go visit the exhibition, you won't regret it.
