Elise Corten – Velvet Opulence

“I wanted to visualize the dreamy, melancholy mood of a girl trapped in her dreamworld. When I saw the hotel I knew It would be perfect as a setting and the wonderful model Lizzy Collier did such a great job.”

Photography student Elise Corten from Belgium has recently taken a wonderful photo-series when she visited London two weeks ago. Shooting-place was a vintage hotel. Elise shot this series on 35mm film with a Leica camera. Modeled by Lizzy Collier and assisted by Luisa Albertacci.  Also there awaits you an impressive prose-text, written by Elise, below. ☆

Cocooned in a dreamworld her mind wanders
wanders between places long known and undiscovered territory
foreign to herself as much as anyone else
At night nostalgic dreams return to her
twisting and turning
wrapped in sheets of velvet she dreams – sometimes reality interferes
A melancholy dreamy girl stuck in the paradise of her own imagination
Dream on and please never wake up
