Dead Mermaids

The August 2010 issue of Vogue Italia published this editorial by Steven Meisel. Called "Water & Oil" reminds of the Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf. Though it pretends to be critical it looks to me a lot more like an exploitation of the subject.

Anyway I appreciate a lot the cool style of Meisel’s photos and the quotation of the mermaid-subject. And there are his romantic roots, which seems much more important to him than this actual desaster.


  1. Moda y catástrofes y sus relaciones simbióticas.

  2. sobretodo me gusta la última. por cierto encontre estas ilustraciones y supuse que te interesarian :)
