"Simulacra" is a photo investigation devoted solely to Lisanne de Jong, one of the most sought after show and editorial models at the moment. Created exclusively for theFashionSpot.com, this work parallels the intensities of Lisanne’s model life, dressed in the looks she presents at shows, with her "off stage" life in between her hectic modeling agenda.
Showing Lisanne’s everyday elegance in moody sobriety, photographer Bojana Tatarska and stylist Morgan Hamada Ruiz, dramatize the activities in which the model engaged in between the shows, and extract her quintessential sensuality to compare it with the ideal embodiment of woman that fashion designers present to us. Laying out Lisanne’s catwalk looks next to the stolen, but set up, moments of her intimate life, commented by Lisanne herself, this work produces a type of photography that partakes of both fashion and documentary idioms without quite belonging to either.
