Landscapes of Fashion/Izima Kaoru

Since 1993, this Japanese photographer has been “shooting” models and actresses who have shared with the artist their fantasy of death. Poetic and disturbing, the models are ceremoniously figured in haute couture and often surrounded by forests or flowers. Although hardly related, the classic title by John Dixon Hunt, The figure in the landscape comes to mind.
