WOOYOUNGMI FALL/WINTER 2012 CAMPAIGN- "BELONGING" BY CLEMENS KRAUSS

Continuing their very interesting advertising concept from the last season, luxury label WOOYOUNGMI has collaborated with another artist to interpret the label season collection. For the fall/winter 2012 campaign painter Clemens Krauss created a beautiful painting called “Belonging.

”BELONGING"

"The whole concept of how modern man lives all isolated without fulfilling the needs of being attached in a group and being loved, which is the third stage of the psychologist Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs theory, is what WOOYOUNGMI 2012 A/W Collection and Clemens have in common in their work. 

In his series 'Concepts of Isolation' Clemens Krauss consequently explores the vulnerabilities of the individual in the social context. Although modern times seem to provide all sorts of amenities, society at the same time is faced with growing alienation and isolation. Yet men are social beings who after fulfilling basic physiological and safety needs long for love, friendship and intimacy.

Clemens Krauss distinctively painted those modern men living their lives alone and isolated as they are not being loved and alienated from their busy lives with family and co-workers, with his very thick impasto depictions and has thrown a big question mark for the solutions for recovering from everyone’s suffering by oneself."





The very remarkable artist, Clemens Krauss has been described as 'a performer who paints and a conceptualist, who performs'. The human body is the central theme of Clemens Krauss oevre. It serves as reference as well as starting point. This is quite understandable and consistent, as Clemens has not only a background in fine arts but also holds a degree in medicine.

ICONIC TV WEATHERMAN MICHAEL FISH B.A.S.E. JUMPS FOR CLIMATE CHANGE

Michael Fish MBE, the iconic British TV weatherman, has completed a B.A.S.E. jump from a London tower block to raise awareness of climate change. Fish, who is 68 years old and, made the freefall jump from the rooftop, landing by parachute on the ground more than 200 feet below. Fish trained with experienced urban B.A.S.E jumpers prior to the jump.

Eco fashion brand Rapanui captured the event on video and has released the footage online to support Fish in drawing attention to the issue.

Michael Fish MBE said:

 “Raising awareness of climate change is really important, because there is no doubt whatsoever that if we carry on the way we are there will be shortages of food, shortages of water, towns and cities will be flooded, there’s all sorts of chaos that could arise, in fact some of it is already happening. We have to something about it now, not wait until it’s too late. If some of us have to make sacrifices, like risking our lives by jumping off buildings, then so be it”

 Martin Drake-Knight co-founder of Rapanui said:

“Climate change is an issue close to our hearts, we hope Michael’s film will raise awareness of what is probably the greatest threat to mankind”

SOUNDTRACK OF THE DAY - JUSTIS KAO -" IT HAPPENED WHEN SIDE A" AND MODEL PORTRAIT

Justis Kao’s EP “It Happens When – Side A” is in my constant rotation on my iPod right now. I love every song in this EP and I’m not just saying this because I know and photographed the singer and songwriter. The pop and R&B EP tackles unrequited love and life struggle. Every songs have wonderful melodies and inspirational.

 The songs “All Falls Down” and “The Best You’ve Ever Known” are the upbeat part of the EP. Both have sweet hooks and smooth harmony that you can’t help but shake your head and move your shoulders to the beat and sing along to the catchy chorus. The ballad and more soulful part of the EP are “Show You”” Falling Through” and “It Happened When”, and tackle life struggles. They are great to listen to if you are feeling down and want to be inspired. They also showcased Justis’ great vocal range and talents as lyricist. 


You can download all the songs in iTunes. http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/it-happens-when-side-a-ep/id413380602









Here are the photos of Justis Kao that I shot.
