America’s Decay

This editorial was publishes by Vogue Korea in July 2008. It shows America in full decay. An abandoned motel and a gas station somewhere lost in the desert, kind of American dream. And probably an Asian romantic vision of the West.

Haunted House

An old abandoned Art Nouveau mansion in Spain. It burned down some years ago and is now recovered by the vegetation, a really enchanted place.

Don’t call me babe

Pamela Anderson in the post-apocalyptic film Barb Wire (1996), which is kind of a bad Russ Meyer version of Casablanca.
O.K., I know it’s a really bad movie, but Pamela looks good in her leather outfit and tries really hard to be cool. Maybe she’s got only one good sentence in the whole film "Don't call me babe!", but it’s not the worst I have seen over the years.
