Entry Description: Conceived as a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen, at the location of his first NY show, featuring his muse Daphne Guinness in original creations by varied fashion geniuses, these images grew alongside my first film: a meditation on obsession, metamorphosis and poetry, inspired by the ancient Chinese legend of lady White Snake, a snake demoness who transforms into a woman to experience love. At first incomprehensible, the power and fragility of these tales of transformation transformed us, as we returned repeatedly to explore the sparks as these diverse inspirations intertwined.
