The Finnish national gallery Ateneum shows an exhibition called "Illusions of reality" (Arjen sankarit)  18/2 - 16/5 2011. I am very impressed by the exhibition's way of showing something new out from these traditional arts. Taken from the Ateneum's website "In the rapidly industrialising Europe of the late 19th century, Naturalism became one of the dominant movements in painting, literature and theatre. The themes of the paintings included the realities of contemporary society and the everyday lives of ordinary people. These themes were drawn from the hot topics of modern life. Labourers, farmers, the affluent middle classes - all layers of society served as subjects."

The fantastic way how the sketches and illustrations actually become garments are due to people with fantastic knowledge at all factories.

This is the fantastic India - my third visit and still so amazed - the contrast with the colourful clothing and poverty as well as the fantastic food and kind people. Got to love it!

Sarah Moon is one of France’s most well-known contemporary photographers, filmmakers and artists. She was one of the first female photographers of haute couture after being a model. The images Moon created for the French fashion houses Chanel and Cacharel, as well as her legendary colour compositions for Comme des Garçons, have an outstanding poetic language. Moon’s career began with fashion photography, but that makes up just a small part of her work.
