Fantasy City campaign 2018
I was commissioned by Mrs Robbinson to work together with Dutch photographers duo Wendy van Santen & Hans Bolleurs on their Fantasy City campaign for Viktor & Rolf Perfumes, and was asked to create 6 famous landmarks in meticulous detail, cut by hand and to scale, made completely out of paper.
Work In Progress:
I was brought onboard to create 6 famous landmarks, by hand and to scale, completely out of paper-craft: The Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, Puerta de Alcalá, Burj Khalifa and Tower of Pisa. Each building was approximately 35 cm tall, and included as much tiny paper details as possible, with anything from pillars and brickwork, to tiny statues and marble plaques… all cut out of paper.
The models were build in my studio in London and took several weeks to build by hand with a team of assistants. Seeing as photographers Hands & Wendy are based in Rotterdam, all communications and photo-updates were done via text & email.
Once all 5 paper-craft buildings were completed, they were carefully packaged and shipped to The Netherlands where I set-dressed on the shoot in the studio Rotterdam.
