As a photographer, I am always looking at images. They’re a daily part of my life, but the ones that really make me stop and look are the photos that make me ask how did they do that? Anyone can light a studio really well, anyone can make a pretty girl in pretty clothes look good, it’s images, like the collaboration between Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton, shot by Mate Moro, that really make you stop, look, think. And that’s what good art does… It makes you think, makes you have a reaction to the images, whether it be good or bad. These stunning images capture the imagination, but the photos do not work alone. The clothes the models wear are just as much art as the photograph is, with interesting patterns and well thought designs and styles. Art is not just limited to traditional mediums and this collaboration proves that fashion can make you stop and think.— Carsen Russell
