Where we belong

A very dear friend of mine with whom I shared the school seat/desktop even since I was 7 years old send me a very nice catalog that was shot in the county where I (and her) were born: Maramures. So, I am proud to present you a little bit of the atmosphere. When I was a child, this spirit was so well known to me and did not consider it important because I spend a lot of my summer holidays with my grandparents that were (still are) living in a quite traditional village, but now I kind of miss it.

I personally like the idea, even though I read here that the girl is “clearly out of place, too overdressed for her surroundings and five inches taller than the locals. Is she in a witness protection program? If so, it’s not a very good disguise. She also has a clone-looking friend (sister?) who shows up in some of the photos. Together, they both have the appearance of being genetically engineered, advanced human specimens.

I will also like to add a song that is very suggestive for me: R.E.M – We all go back to where we belong!

  2. Well, I like it. I find the contrast between the clothes (which, let’s face it, aren’t haute couture, so that comment is totally irrelevant; oh, and that remark about the model being 5 inches taller than the locals, come on! She’s a MODEL! she is taller than the rest of us as well) and the picturesque surroundings very interesting. I haven’t tried the quality of their clothes, but the Anthropologie catalogues and campaigns are very original. xo

  3. I have seen these photos before but of course I had no idea where they were shot. I’m with Ada on this one, I like the contrast. After all it’s a catalog so I don’t really think any rules apply here.

    Enjoy your weekend!
