ANTHONY GOICOLEA, "SLEEPING" FROM THE "SEPTEMBERISTS" SERIES, 2006
Anthony Goicolea is a Brooklyn based artist of Cuban heritage, drawings inspiration from mythology, high fashion, fairytales, science fiction, and the adolescent experience to produce ethereal and mysterious photographs.
Many of his images evoke the interest in nature and the sublime depicted in mid 19th century American landscape painting.
Goicolea’s conceptual portraiture—in its blending of reality, fantasy, desire, and memory are realized with a mastery of 21st century digital manipulation tools.
In the “Septemberists” series (2006), Goicolea mythologized the garment-making process elevating it to a sort of communal ceremony.
A group of young men, clothed in Thom Browne's creations, perform the preparations and processes central to the rituals of a traditional, self-sustaining lifestyle described by the artist as “half military academy, half monastery.”
His subjects pick cotton, sheer sheep, collect ink from a squid, and sew and dye their uniforms in meditative harmony.
Shot at a Massachusetts farm, “Sleeping” from the “Septemberists” series depicts the young men relaxing in their barrack or dormitory-style living quarters.
Ethereal, sublime, and nostalgic, the image shows a rare instance of leisure in the otherwise strictly regimented lives of its subjects.
Both the photographs and the video were received with much fanfare from the fashion world, critics and collectors alike.
Goicolea's series is one of the most innovative, memorable and engaging examples of fashion photography in the 21st century.
