We all have our personal mythologies. In this crazy world full of too skinny/too fat people, I proudly go on with my food obsession. Better, my visual obsession for food.
Looking at pictures posted on Wardrobe_Remix and on various blogs, I realized I'm probably not the only one who like taking and looking at pictures taken in grocery stores and supermarkets...
Dance With Me Forever
and my favorite, from The Clothes Horse
There's something appealing in those colored too full shelves...all those food, that guilty consumistic pleasure is the perfect background for a picture in wich you "spy" on people's cute outfits!
The latest series of the French photographer Denis Darzacq, Hyper, works in a similar manner.
In this case, the loss of gravity, with bodies floating in mid air in an hyper structured space, is sort of a collision between primal and superfluous. It looks like they float in reaction to their everyday life or like they're so mesmerized by the subliminal - comsumerist - meanings of that space (a Non-Place, as Marc Augé would call it) that start floating, loosing the control of their body, like a somnambulist.
On a side note, it's also really interesting that none of the pictures above is photoshopped or digitally reworked. All the models are professional dancers and sportsmen.
...A complete control of the body is needed when you have to look like you're loosing it!
