Major mood swings ensue when a photographer mixes colorful
salvage art with graphic wardrobe elements.
he Color Condition, a collaborative
experiment between Sunny Sliger and
Marianne Newsom, provided an apropos backdrop for this stylish study
in black, white, and bold geometrics. With a
fondness for color, pattern, and movement,
Shayna Fontana seized the opportunity to
work with the installation for our photo
shoot. The result is a black-and-white production that’s far from silent; in fact it speaks
volumes. The designers’ “streams,” made up
of tablecloths, shower curtains, and painters’ drop cloths, are meant to convey shifts in
moods. Paired with the contrasting looks the
models convey, it’s fashionable art at its finest.
