Dreaming/Waking

*broken link has been repaired


photos by the talented Lina Scheynius

Its time to unwind with the weather. Its the season for evening walks again. Lina Scheynius' photographs make me want to wear a proper spring dress. I was first captivated by her work for an interesting dress project called Dream and Wake. The images reminded me so strongly of The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides (a striking book and film). In her pictures I imagined that the models represented the Lisbon sisters trapped in their parents home and longing for sun to caress their skin outside of window panes. The dreamy feel of that kind of depression resonated within my strong memories of summer days blending like all of the shades of paint on my pallet into one murky, dull color. They no longer stood apart and time fell into that unwanted immersion of an endless day. Thank God its over.
"A clock became a hunk of molded plastic, telling something called time, in a world marking its passage for some reason." -The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides

They leave me wondering...It also reminds me of The Secret Garden...because of the dark house. I don't really know what I'm thinking, actually.
