A photoshoot done in a wild patch that somehow exists right off of a busy highway running through Tel Aviv. So many exciting things were happening when we shot this: I and my then-future studio partner Hila of the label Magpie Goose were renovating a huge, former garage space, turning it into part workshop, part storefront, and part art gallery & art book library. All while hectically creating new work for spring. Our friend Zero Cents, whose art now hangs in our shared space, was kind enough to join alongside my regular model so that we could explore interaction and masculine/feminine expression. We used jewels from my spring 2017 releases, and Hila's deconstructed shirt/dresses on both models.
Our primary reference was an Israeli cult film from the 90's about teenagers in a near-future apocalyptic world, "Saint Clara" by Ari Folman & Ori Sivan. Definitely recommended if you can find it with subtitles.
