About the artwork

This photograph comes from the series entitled ?Not Just A Flower Girl? signed by Caleb & Gladys. In a minimal presentation solely consisting of a black backdrop, the model holding or wearing flowers represents the triumph of beauty over obscurity. Particular attention has been paid to the elegance of her pose and the intensity of her gaze. Wearing only flowers, the woman is represented here as Flora, the goddess of fertility and wild flowers. This kind of mythological subject has been interpreted many times throughout art history and particularly in Renaissance painting. One of the most beautiful examples is the illustrious ?Primavera? by Sandro Botticelli, whose iconography has inspired many artists and that has been widely reproduced in fashion photography. Here, Caleb & Gladys propose their own personal, contemporary and innovative version, partially reviving and partially reworking other works based on the same theme, such as those of the famous photographers Cecil Beaton or Ghislain Dussart.
