photographers, actors, designers, writers, models, artists, stylists, MUAHs, artistic directors.,.. and others alike
there is the challenge described:
In his absorbing web series http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/ , writer and editor #JohnKoenig gives names to deep longings and vague feelings in the form of brief, beautiful videos. Subtitled "For lack of a better world". Koenig tries to create a better world by calling attention to sensations that made you think, "maybe it's just me, but…"
His ' The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows' is a compendium of #InventedWords. Each original word and its definition aims to fill a hole in the language - to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don't yet have a word for.
The author has a ferocious curiosity about the art and science of being human, especially language, mythology, poetry, and the natural world. His dictionary has been acclaimed by New York Magazine, Washington Post Express, author John Green, blogger Jason Kottke, and the guys from Radiolab Podcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26JK_Xw_laQ
we used many Koenig's amazing words before as the inspirational key words for our magazines in the past.
the next word is
an image that somehow becomes lodged deep in your brain—maybe washed there by a dream, or smuggled inside a book, or planted during a casual conversation—which then grows into a wild and impractical vision that keeps scrambling back and forth in your head like a dog stuck in a car that’s about to arrive home, just itching for a chance to leap headlong into reality.
I would like to connect the word to styling in general: be it costumes, food, interior design or anhthing else that comes to mind... with the styling, we first have an image that disturbs us... it comes from no where. it inspires us and we keep creating towards this vision untile the materialisation takes place. It is like a child born. Sometimes you want to take a photo of it and happy to forget it as soon as the iPhone memory remembers it... and you know you can always come back to it and check it out again...
on the best concept / style photograph or set of photographs that will fit into the category "FITZCARRALDO" with the focus on STYLING in all its expression: any art form.
We publish the best photos in JULY issue 2020 of MARQUIS FASHION MAGAZINE.
The due date for submission is 29 May 2020 1200pm
The works of art should be sent in the form of
a direct dropbox link or direct wetransfer link
with the full list of credits and
your story of inspiration to accompany it
to email@example.com or in PM.
Your photos should be a highly acclaimed art in fashion - each image should be like a part of a collective story for the magazine pages therefore making it more readable for everyone who opens it.
