Hommage a l’art / Vlisco
The Hommage à l’Art collection honours Vlisco’s art by placing their heritage of iconic drawings in the spotlight.
These drawings were recreated into icons as gold statues in photographs inspired by Vlisco’s heritage and the women who wear Vlisco fabrics in a proud, almost regal way, as in royal portraiture.
art direction and styling: Maarten Spruyt, hair: Margot van Essen
French photographer Pascal Pierrou shoots pictures of modern girls. His inspiration for the series was Andy Warhols ‘Factory’ which was popular in the 60s in New York. Pierrou imagined people of a new factory, free women, feminists, artists that would exhibit their skin, hair, tattoos and words without being ashamed.
The photographer himself describes his style as ‘clean, classical, commercial with modern stories’.
Unconscious Self-Portrait (November 2013) | Ben Wells
When conscious one is aware of judgement, this made me question whether creating a self-portrait whilst conscious could ever, due to self-censorship, be accurate. By attaching pieces of charcoal to my body and sleeping on a sheet of paper I created marks which were not filtered by conscious thought, therefore arguably creating a more accurate self-portrait.

There’s good bosses, and then there’s bosses who think their personal beliefs are more important than your health. But the way we see it, good bosses don’t try to interfere with or control their employees’ personal lives and health care decisions—and they don’t try to deny you birth control coverage just because they personally don’t agree with it.
