LE PARADOX - HER EYES ARE UNDERNEATH THE GROUND


“PHOTOGRAPHER MANUELA IODICE CHOOSES MICHELA AS HER MELODRAMATIC MUSE FOR A STORY INSPIRED BY ANTHONY AND THE JOHNSONS‘ MUSIC. CONTEMPLATIVE AND WILDLY ABSTRACT, THE PICTURES EXPRESS AN IDEAL OF BEAUTY IN DECAY, BUT ALSO SUGGEST A PROCESS OF CATHARTIC TRANSFORMATION THAT STRICTLY CONNECTS MEN TO NATURE. EMOTIONS RUN HIGH AND DEEP, WHILE MICHELA APPEARS ETERNAL LIKE A TREE, SOFT LIKE A BROKEN LEAF, PRECIOUS LIKE STOLEN FLOWER. THE DARK GLAMOUR OF THE STYLING GIVES TO THE STORY A SLEEK AND CONTEMPORARY TWIST. “
