“Like a Warrior”: Mariacarla Boscono in Space by Tim Walker for Vogue Italia March 2014
Shooting for the March issue of Vogue called “Like a Warrior” with pretentious postscript in Space are actually just ironic sketch on “Mystery of the Third Planet”, with a talented performance Mariacarla Biskono led by unbridled Tim Walker. Mariacarla Boscone is an Italian supermodel and actress, she manages to embody perfectly the extraordinary images, having opposed the ideal silhouettes to camera. Tim Walker is a famous photographer, whose name is associated with the english eccentricity and impeccable taste, his mise en scene is far from the digitized world of fantasy. Adventures of a young nymph with an extraordinary appearance, which found a very strange friend between smooth surface of space and metal debris. As metaphor of similarity a human and robot. A meeting bodily grace of black and golden shades with the gray rigidity of the undistinguished creatures. And only the light of the warm sun which barely noticeable somewhere on the horizon, as a symbol of the fine line of intersection of two solitudes. Both characters are ridiculous and gorgeous at the same time. Seeming almost alive the story told by a series of beautiful pictures, deserves not only glossy magazines, but and pages of our aesthetic experiences.
