Jean Paul Gaultier

Today, I have the privilege to see the work of the master of fashion creation - Jean Paul Gaultier.  I was in awe of the intricate details that go into each garment.  I live for details and I am happy to report that everything about this man is the in the details.  I saw lace, woven ribbon, wheat, leather, flowers, hair, to name a few.  It's not just the material itself but how he used them.  Every pieces were so well thought out and over the top avant-garde.  There is no word that can describe how magnificent this exhibit was.  It's now on view at the Brooklyn Museum.  My photos are more focused on the details and transitional moment from one material to another.  Needless to say, I am more inspired than ever!    

Photography by Huong Lam

My niece is an attorney with a side hobby of photography.  In a way, we got our artistic touch from my grandfather of my mother's side, who was her great grand father.  He was a great painter and photographer.  I have such great memories visiting him in Ben Tre, Vietnam when I was young.  He had the most beautiful country home with sliding wood barn doors.  I was too young then to appreciate the carpentry in all the details of the house but I am grateful that bits and pieces of it are still with me today in my memory.  

Huong took some photos of me during my last visit in South Carolina.  You can visit her work here at Huong Lam Photography
