To put it in YSL’s words: fashions fade – style is eternal. Trends are dependent on zeitgeist and hugely fugitive.

It is intangible, indescribable and unattainable, yet it is the timeless essence that radiates from deep within. It lies somewhere in between coolness and naturalness, staging and authenticity. However, should one wish to grasp it, it seems to dissolve. But for all that photographers take on this challenge anew.
