Thee Denim Project – The Polaroids Book

Happy to share and announce my new book titled #THEEDENIMPROJECT. Each of us has a different definition for denim. We all have different opinions, taste, preferences and a point of view. We all come from different cultures and different religions, with many different backgrounds. I made this project as raw as I could, starting with large format black and white polaroids, in an effort to show what each of us thinks about  denim and its meaning. I asked several different agencies to tell the models to bring their favorite denim items. My main idea was to take a portrait of each model, and then accompany it with a mood shot or a close up of her denim – to show the two personalities and connect the dots between the person that wears the piece, to the actual piece, to the worlds take of the item. Some see denim as youth, some as sophisticated, some as fresh, edgy, cheap, expensive, for work, play, or fun. Its just the beginning of the project and there will be more to come.

Below I will show selected pages from the book, but, like anything, it doesn’t compare to seeing it in person. The book is only one part of the project, as I have 4X5 film sheets as well and many more formats and mediums that were a part of it.

FACTICE Magazine Issue #18, April/May 2013

Story that celebrity makeup artist Kristina Goldberg and I came up with. Her father had kept original 35mm slides from the 70’s-80’s, when they travelled across Europe. The slides are from Italy, Paris, London, Amsterdam, Berlin and more. I approached John from Lloyd Klein Couture and got to pull amazing gowns and garments that would fit the concept and the structure of each different country we “travelled to”. We projected the slides and started our trip to Europe…

Here is the story with some unseen outtakes and a short film.

  • Model: Vika Costa @ Muse Model Management, NYC.
  • Makeup, Hair and Concept: Kristina Goldberg
  • Video editing: Kai Arwas
  • All designs that featured are by the French designer: Lloyd Klein Couture.

Special thanks to John Arguelles @ Lloyd Klein for the hand, and grateful thanks to Julie ,Editor-In-Chief of FACTICE Magazine, for having me 4th time in a row in her magazine.
