beauty will save us!

Have a look at this; this is what the duo Riitta Ikonen (Finland) and Karoline Hjorth (Norway) can do with a camera – isn’t it just wonderful?!!

Eyes as Big as Plates is an ongoing project, this is from the artists:

Starting out as a play on characters from Nordic folklore, Eyes as Big as Plates has evolved into a continual search for modern human’s belonging to nature. Inspired by the Romantics’ celebration of imagination, each image in the series presents a solitary figure in a landscape, dressed in elements from surroundings that indicate neither time nor place. The scenes take into account qualities of timelessness and universality, yet suggest an additional narrative by revealing traces of the characters’ individuality and signs of contemporary living.

    What is beauty? It is like a needle that passes through ever bag you throw it into. It is not contained. It pierces all contexts!

    This is absolutely terrific — I saw it I guess when first posted by the creators of these photos, and I am so glad you have reblogged it, because it deserves to be more widely known and admired
