I have been away for too long, I know. Moving to a new space has been a rejuvenating experience but so many things are happening that the moving process seems already too far in the past. I hope all these things will have a positive outcome. This could not have been a better moment for an exciting project to be published on a A Shaded View On Fashion. Through my blog I met Ana Maria Rusu, a brilliant photographer with a passion for scents and through her comments and our discussion that followed the idea of a joint explorationof perfumes slowly became real. A Shaded View on Perfume, the column of ASVOF, seemed to be the perfect platform for this and together we worked on Philosykos to create a vision of this scent through her photos and my text. I had my own images about Philosykos in my mind but I took a back seat and allowed Ana’s images to open new paths through its notes and lead me to an abstract review of this favourite fig scent. You can read the fictional and visual results of this ambitious joint project on ASVOF and you can explore more of Ana Maria’s photographic work in her blog IAmOnTheRun, where you can also see her visual interpretation of Salvador Dali Laguna.
