Entry Description

“Death by Diamonds and Pearls” is a conceptual mix between mythological symbols from the middle ages, mythology and the cosmetized contemporary. The photos propose connections between old and new, bringing into spotlight transformations that took place due to the passing of time. The artists question the idea of human condition during different time periods and the way we interact with this spiritual belonging. This makes the audience think of issues concerning the significance and presence of myths in our life in the 21th century. To sum up, it is a melancholic episode about vulnerable beauty giving birth to metaphysical injuries.
