In life, the things that immediately strike you as beautiful are usually defined as either being complex, highly elaborate, able to drag you into a labyrinth of deep thoughts and equally profound emotions, or quite on the contrary surprisingly mild, delicate, hitting you with a punch of uncomplicated grace. Vivienne Mok‘s dreamy photographs fall in the second category, resembling an early spring’s breath of fresh air.
Submerged in the warmest light and overloaded with a dreamlike quality, Jana and Ela’s portraits are the ones effortlessly uniting the old with the new, the sensual with the innocent, the imaginary with the pure factual. Featherweight layers of clothing mimicking the ethereal movement of the body and barely there make-up enhancing the natural state of beauty, transform each image into an untold story.
Waiting to be unfolded, Vivienne Mok’s tales never cease to amaze. Putting effort into every single detail so that her every photo can easily carry her unmistakable whimsical imprint, the photographer, stylist, hair and make-up artist is a woman of many and great talents. Too bad the kind of world Vivienne imagines doesn’t just exist upon exiting one’s door.
