About this artwork

Shot on Polaroid i-Type 600 / 5x8
Milano / 2005

“A Polaroid from 2005, my career was in full swing by then. I was part and parcel of the fashion industry, the machinery. When you are so deep in a certain circle, you only think in the categories of that circle. I had just come back from Paris when I took this picture. It was early in the morning, often call time was as early as 5:00. It was a Max Mara show, but I was mainly interested in the lipstick at that moment - it's the legendary 'Rouge Noir' by Chanel. The colour itself is an icon, a legend, around which many conversations centred. For example, we discussed what could be done to get hold of the desirable make-up in the UK as well - even though there were 10-month-long waiting lists. Years later, I came across the book "Le Rouge et le Noir", a classic by writer Stendhal. The book is also about what and why people are not happy in the modern world. According to Stendhal, one of the reasons is vanity.”
