Despite an initial lack of attention from the fashion world London-based Norwegian photographer and previous Nick Knight understudy Sølve Sundsbø has now worked with all major fashion houses [Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Cartier, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Gucci, Hermès, Armani and Alexander McQueen to name a few]. Designer Tom Ford applauds his work, having collaborated with him many times over the last couple of decades:
“Sølve is a great talent in the fashion industry…his photographs speak for themselves. They are powerful, beautiful [and] always fresh.”
Working for W Magazine Korea, Sundsbø shoots Tilda Swinton in an editorial entitled ‘The Aura’ in which Swinton poises in an aural albumen of icy blue, clad in Gareth Pugh, Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann.
Click below to see the remainder of the editorial, plus a brief insight into the historically held interpretation of the blue aura.
“Blue is considered the coolest and most peaceful color in the auric spectrum. It corresponds primarily to the element of water, with a nod toward air. It also corresponds to the Throat Chara, and is a peaceful and healing color.
Those people with blue auras are naturally peaceful and peace-loving people. They are often calm and wise, with an insight of someone well beyond their years. They are often very sensitive to the feelings of those around them, with a heightened awareness of physical and emotional conditions.
Turquoise is a soft blue with just a touch of green. People with this color present in their auras are often survivors of traumatic and difficult experiences. However, they have also learned to put their past sufferings in proportion and have moved on with their lives, learning lessons and often interested in counseling others to heal as well.” __consultthesage
