“Lighting Clothes II” is the second part from a personal portrait series where consumer objects we usually want like fancy clothing or pricey jewelry, are replaced by simple laser light lines. This is an attempt to create a metaphor of the conventional elements of the fashion world, as well as an image about the elegance itself with no material and needless elements. The main approach for this project was to prove that real beauty and the importance of the people themselves are totally linked to simplicity, trying to reflect on the amount of things we desire or are imposed to us with no need.
