One of the first things I see each morning is my Bruno Bisang 2007 calendar. Ms October is a beautiful nude portrait, but aesthetically I see more than just her nudity when I look at her.
I see the shapes. Don’t you see them?
Firstly, there’s the circular shape of her derriere. And the smaller circle of her breast, which could be seen as a diagonal reflection of the larger one. Then there are the triangles formed by the positioning of her arms, plus the S created by the arching of her back.
I compare it to the following pic of Kate Moss by Mario Sorrenti, which has quite the opposite shape and feeling about it. I feel that the Bisang is more of a sensual celebration of the body, while the Sorrenti is a statement on introspection.
What do you think? Which do you prefer?
