Dame di Cartone, Cardboard Ladies, is a series of portraits where women mimic 17th Century, cubist, and fifties fashions – only they’re wearing dresses made of cardboard and paper instead of fabric! Swiss-Italian photographer Christian Tagliavini takes complete control of the entire creative process, including making the patterns, constructing the outfits, and photographing the subjects. He aims to invent, create, and ultimately produce innovative images that blend fine art and craftsmanship. Just looking at the details, you can see what a labor of love his method truly is.
