Anja Niemi’s Darlene & Me is a Conceptual Exploration of Women and Relationships #celebratephotography
Beautiful conceptual series from Anja Niemi via ignant. We can’t get over this color processing!
The shoot, which took place in the Californian desert, show two women in various emotional states, such as comfort, agony or in conflict with each other. Speaking of the idea behind the project, Niemi recalls the following story:
“‘Darlene & Me’ started with the content of a suitcase from 1959, that left me thinking about the relationship we have with ourselves. The case belonged to a beauty counselor named Darlene and contained makeup samples, brochures and the receipts from her sales. Most of the samples appeared to be untouched, but there were clear traces of her fingers in the two lipstick colors, ‘Strawberry Festival’ and ‘Princess Pink’.
