You might call it a Poetic Movement for the Liberation of Photographs. But it’s something much more simple: cutouts from fashion magazines. The blade traces a surgical line around the body’s contour to free not the flesh (it’s paper, remember!) but the soul. The model rises from her printed destiny, ready to leave the page and do something with her life. We should do the same, actually. Trapped in the two dimensions of daily life, we often forget how beautiful it is to escape, to tear off  the tired outlines of our routine and breathe some fresh air. The Brandpowder Team is currently working at some more adventures. Sorry for not posting new stuff every day. You might think this is due to Our Accurate Selection of Contents, and we’d like to believe so, too. Truth is, we are a bunch of laid back people. Thank you for following us, anyway!

Do We Know Each Other?

I’m Not One Of Your Slaves!


Gimme Two Minutes…

Many thanks to Vogue Italy for the pictures we took the liberty to cut out. Special thanks to Alessandro Dell’Acqua and Eres, and Steven Meisel for his always outstanding work. The Brandpowder Team

  1. I absolutely love what you’ve done with those magazines. It’s a new form of art.

    • Thank you Serial Princess,

      I think your nickname is one of the coolest I have ever heard in ages. It’s such a brilliant, idealistic, ironic blend of crime and fairy tales, I’ve almost got the jitters 🙂
      Keep in touch!


  2. Those beautiful models almost look real now!

  3. Carlo you are our model.

  4. Some might say that models are often two dimensional, enshrine an unequal patriarchal society and lack brains. With your surgical ‘lift’ you have created a free and emancipated group of women whose profession is often so misunderstood

    • Dear Chris,

      I am sure a few women – not only models – would agree with your intense interpretation, and would probably build you a small monument for that (made out of paper, of course). Thank you for your insight!
