Books and shoes… Aside for books that happen to be about shoes, the two things have little in common. Shoes are both protective and aesthetic; books usually set out to inform or entertain. But if there’s one commonality that ties the two together it’s that they’re both collectable and as such become an objet du fetish to particular people.
This shoot by Renée Rodenkirchen brings the two things together in a rhythmic kind of harmony. Piles of books, rows of shoes. Both turned into objects of desire by the mannequin-like anonymous bodies.
Shot by Rodenkirchen for Lilogi, you can view the full shoot – styled by Alexandra Loeb – at the gallery, or watch the accompanying video by hitting ‘play’ above.
