Let’s get lost

Dior ha dado un pequeño golpe de efecto esta semana desvelando la campaña que la reputada fotógrafa Nan Goldin ha disparado con la superestrella Robert Pattinson para su fragancia Dior Homme. Una colección de imágenes muy cinematográficas, elegantes y melancólicas que se acompañan con un bonito tráiler.

El blanco y negro de algunas de las fotos y el acting de Pattison interactuando con la ciudad de Nueva York me han conectado con dos películas. Es algo que no puedo evitar cuando veo cosas, buscar links. A veces las relaciones son evidentes, pero otras, no sabes muy bien porqué la mente vincula una cosa con la otra.

En un primer momento pensé en Jim Jarmusch. Sobre todo en su Strangers Than Paradise. Es una película de autor, en blanco y negro, cruda. Muy alejada de todo lo que se está haciendo ahora.

Luego me vino a la cabeza Chet Baker, las imágenes de William Claxton cuando era joven, tan perfectas y bellas, y el documental que le hizo Bruce Weber: “Let’s Get Lost”. Si no lo has visto, muy recomendable también.

Probablemente lo que vincula a todas estas imágenes es la escapada, la huida de la muchedumbre. La búsqueda de un espacio íntimo… Ahora que empieza a ponerse todo en marcha, apetece poner música, pasear un rato, buscar el silencio y disfrutar de la brisa del otoño.

A collection of elegant and melancholic images with a cinematographic approach accompained with a short film.

The black and white of some of the pictures and Pattinson posing surrounded by wide landscapes made me thought about two films. Something I can’t resist when I see things is searching for connections. Sometimes the links are obvious, but in other occasions my mind relates to unexpected things.

At first glance I thought about Jim Jarmush and his film Strangers Than Paradise. A black and white cult film with a really raw style.

After Chet Baker crossed into my mind, his early portraits by William Claxton, so beautiful, and the Bruce Weber Documentary: “Let’s Get Lost”. If you haven’t seen it yet, I truly recommend it.

Maybe everything here is connected by the idea of an escape, a flight from the crowd. The search for an intimate space… Now that everything is coming back to work, feels like to put some soft music, to go for a walk, get some silence and enjoy the fall breeze.
