A different kind of Moon (NSFW)

Moon Lee has a round face, round like the word moon, round like the moon itself. It’s fitting that Jean Francois Gschwindt should shoot her against blackness, from below, a shining thing in the sky of a glass tabletop. In other shots Moon sprawls, lounges, crawls, couches; or morphs into illusions of other worlds projected across her. The projection of a hotdog across her bare pelvis is both retro and suggestive.

Gschwindt has a talent for being creative like that – if you’re to go by this and his other shoot for issue XVII of Bambi magazine. In this shoot, it’s as much about the creative angles and poses as the mix of formats. You get the sense that Gschwindt isn’t afraid to experiment, and probably does just as much crawling and climbing as his muse in order to nail each frame.

And in that, Gschwindt has it right. Art is about trying something new, and maybe finding yourself crawling in the darkness in the process.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
