Interview: An Eclectic Twist on Fashion's Future by Photographer Amer Mohamad for Grazia Serbia
Model Ania Chiz (@aniachiz) photographed by Amer Mohamad (@shootmeamer) for Grazia Serbia (@graziaserbia) How did you get the idea to make this project? Actually, we were planning a diffrent shoot with stylist Kristina Lisovets, when I went by accident on instgram on the designers page who made the flowers, and the idea just came by in minute, when I told kristina lets do this, she said we need like a month of preperation and we really did. I sketched the idea, contacted the designer and things went on . For this photo shoot, you are inspired by the work of Salvador Dali. Why did you choose this particular artist and surrealism?
I was never a fan of his work, I really enjoy diffrent art style which is art deco by Erte, or Tamara de Lempicka. But when I started gathering the idea, I knew I was going into surrealism, so i choose his work to be a color inspiariton in this photoshoot, especially when using the backgrounds, using his paitning the elephants and three sphinxes of bikini. Salvador dali is the father of surrealism.
You create fabulous, unusual characters in this project. What is the most important thing for you in creating an image in your works?
Harmoney, between all of the team, set design and model it was quite hard to take images on this project, especially finding the right angle and the visuals to combine together as one, united. The set is very eye catching and so did the model, so that was quite an achevment to me and my team, very daring and exciting to gather the pieces...
