I saw an exhibit of the combined work of Issay Miyake the world’s greatest clothing designer and Irving Penn one of the greatest photographers. It was in a modern and elegant museum designed by Masahashi Ando.
I came out of the exhibition with a very different perspective. That is a sign of a good exhibition.
What I concluded is that modern architecture, the most imaginative clothing designer and a great photographer are part of a dying mode of style.
I say this because I feel more comfortable and more vital in a remodeled warehouse or old building, wearing clothing that is a weird construction of my own personal choices for that day. The photographs I take with my smart phone are the ones that I enjoy most.
I do not think I'm alone. I think I am actually reading the direction of the contemporary world.
