In the dark room

It wasn’t my first time in the darkroom. When I was studying Graphic Design, I had this class as part of my photography programme during the graduation. At that time, it was a curiosity, but I never felt like doing it my self. It was more convenient to source professional labs to have your pictures developed. Yes, I’ve seen the world before the internet! – and analogue film cameras were the standard back then.

A história da Moda

Resenhas e aventuras de Ale Filizzola (@alefilizzola) pelo mundo do Fotografia de Moda em Londres.

Voltando no tempo, bem lá atrás, na época dos gregos e romanos, a moda era meio que uma só pra todo o mundo dito civilizado. Com boa parte do corpo em evidência como uma coisa normal, vestimentas drapeadas e sem corte eram a base de uma moda que seguiu praticamente inalterada por séculos. As mudanças de estilo aconteciam geralmente nos adereços, como jóias, penteados, perucas e maquiagem. O oposto disso, roupas com corte e costura, ainda que rústicas, eram características do mundo bárbaro. E isso nem se cogitava “desfilar” pelas ruas de Roma.
