There’s nothing like the sweet childhood memories of dressing up, wearing everything from your mums closet with unbridled optimism and creating extravagant stories. From here you discover your mothers’ makeup bag to find her vintage lipsticks & eye shadows, not worrying about staying in the lines and using your imagination to be anyone you want, in places all around the world.
It’s these early experiments with creativity that stay with us, and with this in mind some time ago I created a special category on Oracle Fox, known as the Oracle Fox Journal, which began as a curated journey and form of storytelling. Compromising of my own editorial work as a photographer and some of my favourite creatives. Born from the desire to create a non-commercial online space, with unbridled freedom to create.
Which leads me to the latest Oracle Fox Journal Submission, where nostalgic dress ups and the creative use of everyday materials are the ingredients for a beautiful editorial. ‘The Wonder Years’ is the latest submission to the Journal created by Margarita Morozova and her team of creatives. With her intelligent balance of dark and light, hard and soft, Morozova tells the story of a lost girl seeking her place in the world. Using lace and to depict darkness or the night, and plastics to represent the reflection of the moon on the water, using objects to create a spark of light in the darkness.
I’ll leave you here to float in a cloud of dreamy nostalgia and your understandable new plans to play dress up.. x
