Fashion / art: Admir Batlak / Ingrid Eggen

 

 

 

On the one hand there are clothes, on the other hand there are photographs.
 
There are bodies in the photographs and the clothes fit on the bodies, and cover up the bodies, and show off the bodies that are in the photographs. The bodies are doing all the work, unzip this, button that, hook it up and tie it down while the camera collects its fractions of moments.
 
Clothes posit poise, while the camera postures posing, punctum, full stop.
