Mr Toledano`s own words: “For me, fashion photography is like writing. Sometimes it`s a short story, sometimes it`s a one-liner. But it`s always more than just hair and make-up.”

The “aaah” factor

I just don`t know what is it that distinguishes good design from bad, beautiful spaces from not such, good art from bad art. Milions of critics tried their best at it, and I suppose it is the driving force behind theories of art, architecture or design: to destinguish good from bad, and to make systems to clarify these destinctions.

What striks me, after all the years of formal and unformal education, is how fickle and eludive this “quality” in good designs, art, architecture is.

Still, I hold my breath each time I see a good photograph, or a specific peace of art.

This picture below inspired me to think of how little we still know about what lies beyond our ways of percieving.

For me this space pictured was just beautfiul. I`ll call it the “aaah” factor 🙂
