What´s hidden…

This is the most beautiful of all pictures taken of me. One is, you don´t see me really and the other is, you can totally feel the space I`m in and it is a deeply beautiful one. So often in this world of fashion we are asked to give up ourselves, to give up who we truly are, to fit into a picture. And other times  it can be the most incredible experience of direct inner contact with the true beauty, a real moment of meeting that within. This was a moment like that. The set up of a photograph taken is often like going into a space of meditation, there are preparations being made that allows this, like hair getting done and place set up… it can so be quiet. This one was extremely quiet and I was very quiet. So the moment of the photo was like a moment of prayer, really a moment of prayer.

Paris mix…

I have all these pictures…and I feel so ambitious to just share them. Here we go:

A crazy happy Isabel Marant after show…

models posing outside

wild photographers shooting everyone of interest to them…and as soon as one starts all the others follow…to not miss out just in case it is someone famous…

Agnes

and this sweet girl…

Here we sit at hotel Costes, the Rodeo gang. What a luxury moment we shared there.

And outside Colette

Never went inside this time. I like my style actually, haha…

Les Tuileries…

Les Tuileries…at one end musee du Louvre at the other, Place de la Concorde ,which is the beginning of Champs Elysee, ending at l`Arche de Triomphe. Everything is very historical in Paris and built on very precise lines. I am fascinated by this and very aware of it when I walk. Where I am, where the directions are and where I am going to, even when it seems random there is like an inner map I follow. There is also a specific way to move to add all different events in the time/space schedule during the fashion week. After a show in les Tuileries for instance, it is a natural thing to go into the half a kilometer long tent which holds the fair of Premiere Classe…

The first spring flower in the cold soil.

Love this text: (Placed) at a fixed point…

(Taken) from a fixed point.

The different fairs in the tent. Jewelry, shoes, clothes, scarves etc…accessories.

I loved this golden necklace…

which is a copy from a mountain (sorry don`t remember which). It just feels so wholesome!

And wisdom is exposed as well for the eyes that see and the ears that hear…

from the inside looking out.

One of the creations I really liked, a tree made of black rubber cables with lightbulbs at the end like leaves. Nature inspired technology.

Here I am in the middle of it ALL…

After show…

Just some hair shoots backstage at Issey Miyake/ Miyamae show…

the models getting their hair untangled while contacting the world outside

aooooww…it hurts, but they are brave…it`s part of the job!

Done!

The hair style was short and messy…

while many had really long hair that had to be tamed into the look

really working hard on the hair

Outside. ”Stop! May we have a Photo”?

” Yes” with a smile giving the pose …

a moment of attention…on the way…well dressed.

Photographers well dressed as well…more for the climate though.

And this young girl selling her hand made baguette leather bags…

making her own show…

70s again…

The past is coming to me in different ways at the moment. I am part of a group of supermodels from the 60s and 70s, a private group, and every now and then pictures of me pop up that I don`t have in my possession any longer…like this one…

David Bailey for Vogue-72

I remember it so well. And how I was plucking my eyebrows at that time while I was thinking ” I wonder if they will grow out again”?. Which they didn`t. I really liked my full eyebrows so I regret that somehow. Now they are not only thinner than before, they are thin and bushy, since with age the hair becomes longer and more wild, I have NO idea why that is so! Going into this space of being photographed (and I know I have said this before) is somehow both a way of meditating, going deep inside and at the same time letting go of the self image AND at the same time controlling your expression and movements. I still don`t know if it is very narcissistic or a way to enlightenment OR both…! What IS super ego, wanting to be seen, loved and acknowledged… and what is letting go of it (that scary space of no-thing) and trust the deep love in everything moment to moment.

In Paris it is snowing today, quite magic, I have never seen snow here before, it is different than in Sweden, an extra dimension of beauty.
