It’s no secret that the French artist Yves Klein was both a proponent, admirer, and progenitor of the color blue. He believed not only in its apparent beauty and depth, but in it being a symbol of transcendence, boundlessness and mystique. To stare deeply into his Blue Monochromes was to engage directly with the color in its purest form and to transcend the limitations of the physical world.
We were inspired by Klein’s assertion that the color could elicit surreal feelings of immateriality and infinite possibilities — descriptors that are often associated with the worlds we build only in our dreams. We wanted to explore these relationships further — between the conscious and subconscious, the physical and spiritual — by creating our own limitless dreamscapes, comprised almost solely of blue in all its shades and mediums. The result is a story of sensorial photos created for Vogue+ and Vogue China, composed as a love letter to the beauty, ethereality and the infinity of blue.
“Blue is the invisible becoming visible. Blue has no dimensions. It is beyond the dimensions of which other colors partake.”
