NOW THAT I KNOW. Editorial. Atlas Magazine 2017
„…What if the world we perceive was nothing but a shadow of a higher reality?“
– Plato, The Allegory of the Cave, 380 b. Chr.
For the series „Now that I know“ Julia Otto (Art Direction & Styling) and I teamed up after we met online and discovered that we share a similar aesthetical taste.
The inspiration came from a friend of Julia who was writing a paper on „Immersion and Illusion“. Immersion is the feeling of being surrounded by a completely different reality, absorbing all your attention and senses, like being submerged under water. It can happen when you read a book, watch a movie or play a video game. The boundaries between fiction and reality blur. Adventures become real.
In the editorial “Now That I Know” we wanted to portrait the feeling of being submerged in your own parallel world. You get confronted with your desires and fears and in introspection discover what else lies within yourself.
