Portugese styled shoot
Deze prachtige styled shoot is gebaseerd op een gedicht van de Portugese schrijfster Florbela Espanca. De dromerige beelden en stijlvolle locatie geven ons het gevoel in een andere wereld beland te zijn. Een te gekke samenwerking van fotograaf Momento Cativo en stylist Hoje é Especial. Rode tinten gecombineerd met een ruïne als back drop. Met sieraden van Naturae Design, een fantastisch mooi stel en goede styling. Droom met ons mee.
Inspirational shoot concept:
Florbela Espanca is a portuguese female writer, she was one of the first women in Portugal to get high education. She faced many hardships and she coped with them through literature, she lived a passionate life, tormented by deep emotions and turmoils such as the death of family members, divorces, an abortion and subsequent illnesses. She did not survive her last attempt at suicide having died on the day of her 36th birthday. Her work is deeply connected to the natural world, flowers and birds are mentioned constantly representing the frailty of our humanity, the main theme of her poetic work is love, its fatalities, loneliness, despair, seduction, deep lust and a desire to be free.
Our concept was based on this poem of hers, called Ruínas. It talks about how life keeps throwing our dreams to the ground, how we constantly need to keep strength to build them up again, to find new ones and how there is beauty in that constant motion of picking up the pieces to create again. These ruins seemed to be the perfect place to set a beautiful love story, it puts into contrast how delicate they are in their flesh, their feelings and hopes with the scenery, so rustic and harsh, but so stoic in its perseverance and beauty.
