For a couple of months now, we’ve been noticing all sorts of images made with curtains on the interweb. Yes curtains, not your average ones but curtains used in a special manner, then photographed, sometimes with people. The first one we noticed was the image by Patty Carrol from her Draped series, which are great! After that one we started noticing more images with the same vibe; didn’t save them all but one. Subsequently the idea on how to embellish Mimi Berlin’s HQ with curtains came up. It was in the same way we later saw on Edwin van Gelder‘s instagram: a picture made at Fondazione Prada. Funny how that works: ideas.
Have a nice day! xoxo Mimi

Wow, these manipulated photo’s by Eva Stenram are magical! At first glance they seem to be vintage shoe fetish pin-up pictures, at second glance they still are very sexy! Although the images direct the mind in a severe way, they leave so much room for the imagination at the same time.

Eva Stenram on Drape XI “I turned this intriguing vintage pin-up negative into a new ‘Drape’ image. It will be shown at Pobeda Gallery, Moscow, in September. The print looks great (50 x 50cm).” (quote taken from her blog) Make sure to check out her site, her work is certainly worth the visit. (photo’s courtesy of Eva Stenram via mudwerks)
