The Monochrome Experience: Never Go Out Of Style

Get inspired by these 10 quotes that will never go out of style:

Retailer Jeffrey Kalinsky: “I’ve always loved fashion for the ability to present yourself in your own way.”

Alexander McQueen: “I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it.”

Bill Cunningham: “Fashion is the armor to survive the reality of everyday life.”

Bill Blass: “When in doubt, wear red.”

Ralph Lauren: “I don’t design clothes. I design dreams.”

Yves Saint Laurent: “Fashions fade, style is eternal.”

Marc Jacobs: “I always find beauty in things that are odd and imperfect, they are much more interesting.”

Coco Chanel: “I don’t do fashion. I am fashion.”

Giorgio Armani: “Elegance is not standing out, but being remembered.”

Alexander Wang: “Anyone can get dressed up and glamorous, but it is how people dress in their days off that are the most intriguing.”

The Monochrome Experience: Whimsy Light

The light is whimsical, fortunately. Watch this woman, down the subway scales. She wears a very radical hairstyle. Half shaved hair, with the shell (half head) in sight. And the light, as the bold hairstyle points out, illuminates just the place of the shorter hair. A form of light that is repeated under the staggered step.
The other two photographs have peculiar relationships: the girl in the dress and the cone of circulation; the infused boy and the others who see him understood.

The Monochrome Experience: La Boqueria

La Boqueria is the most famous market in Barcelona around the world. The city center beats every day, with more than 200 vendors for their blinds, smells, meals and cuisine. A festival for the senses… This is the other entrance.

The Monochrome Experience: Wrapped Statues in White Cloth and Nets

Modern art visited the Columbus monument in Barcelona. A necessary restoration of the statues of the base (66 ft) wide circle, with four staircases. For me, in my humble opinion, now the statues from the buttresses and against the pedestal reach the top artistic zenith. They should always be like that: wrapped in white fabrics and knotted networks. The viewer imagines the interior they hide, emulating the artistic works of Christo Javacheff. Awesome!

The Monochrome Experience: Warning To The Seagulls

The sea is the canvas. The torso man is a white spot. The woman with the sunglasses and the enigmatic smile, the time. The needles of the horizon obey a certain order and a warning to the seagulls: do not rest here, or you will prick the feathers.

The Monochrome Experience: Giants

Photographing giants is a festive activity that modifies our human scale. We are insignificant if we compare ourselves with them. They dance and wear their best clothes. It is something magnificent that allows us to daydream and forget the gear of wealth redistribution and the intrusive digital marketing.
