AN ILLUSION RICHER
Beauty, wonder, illusion. For this reason you have bought MIRROR MIRROR again - if this is your first number: welcome! Relax for a while and clear you mind by turning pages filled with creative content. Look at things that you won’t find in other magazines. Make room for beauty.
Such as the beauty that a photo shoot produces when you offer the photographer, hair artist, makeup artist and stylist the theme of ‘illusion’. In the series by Bastiaan Woudt, Philippe Vogelenzang, Rahi Rezvani and Jasper Abels, they all came up with surprising interpretations of the theme. Their shoots are about beauty and the photos themselves have become beauty. This is how art is created.
Make-up wants to bring beauty and to accentuate it. Drag queens prove that make-up can be even much more than that: with make-up they create artworks: an illusion of extreme femininity. Violet Chachki tells about it in this issue.
Drag inspires more and more women. “This way they can go over the top”, says Violet Chachki. “While people always tell girls how they should and should not behave and what they should and should not wear.” Illusion is literally trickery, but in reality fun and creativity. Illusion makes us richer.
