L I F E / Confidential

 photo loveaestheticsportrait.jpg

here's a special story
My dear friend Suzanne went to New York for fashion week and rented a room via air-bnb, coincidentally it was in Lyndsy Welgos appartment, who was just working on her online magazine Topical Cream and was looking for people to feature. Suzanne introduced us to each other and ended up doing an interview with me. This was super special because not only is Suzanne a brilliant magazine editor and conceptual thinker, she is also a very good friend. The cliche questions like 'who is your style icon' were not asked, instead Suzanne turned it into an in depth conversation. On top of that, Romeo was commissioned to shoot the portraits, who besides being my boyfriend is also my best friend. I came up with the idea to take pictures in which my face wouldn't be visible. The end result turned out being such an intimate collaboration, I don't think interviews can get any more personal than this.

/ Sharing the meaning of my tattoo feels very strange because it is so very personal and important to me. It is about staying focussed, staying on your path that aims to your goals and dreams. The line is almost never 100% straight because my arm is always in movement, and so is life. There are curves and bends but the line is always there and can always go back to its original straight form.

Beautiful and intimate portraits. BTW your tattoo (and also your b-friends one) are some of the most minimalistic and yet stylish ones I've ever seen. I am not a big fan of tattoos though I might admit. That's why it is even more of a compliment from my side. You are so lucky to be surrounded by such talented and good friends and partners. Nowadays, since family maybe hasn't the same significance as it might had decades ago, friends are precious and should never be neglected.

For some reason I always just thought it was a line because it is just befittingly simple and poetic to all of your creative work. But it's cool to know that there's so much more meaning behind it... it just makes it even better!

Love these pictures. :)

Mika said...

I love your tattoos for the simplicity and starkness but I never could have guessed the meaning behind them! Very profound for what is seemingly just a line (but aren't most things in life like that, anyway?)

Sarah said...

These portraits are mind-numbingly stunning and so thoughtfully executed. I'm in awe.

Kristin B said...

I really enjoyed reading your interview, Ivania. So refreshing and candid. And fantastic portraits! Your boyfriend is certainly a talent. That last image of your tattoo and the blank white canvas speaks to me so much, especially after your sharing what your tattoo meant. I can't get that image out of my head now. He/you should sell that image as a print - not only it is a gorgeous stand alone image, but it has such a deep and powerful sentiment behind it.
