Layla Sailor’s ethereal photography first enchanted us when we discovered her work for Whitney Eve’s “Bits & Bobs” Fall 2012 collection. The soft lighting and subtle earth tones that transcended us to a realm fit for a Grecian goddess seem to be Sailor’s forte, as she presents us with a charming new editorial series titled “Ceci n’est pas une photo.” Have a look:
The shoot was inspired by French artist René Magritte’s infamous painting La trahison des images, which bore the words “Ceci n’est pas une pipe” beneath a stark image of a pipe.
Instantly transporting me to Paris in the summertime, where eating macaroons and sipping espresso on a cafe patio without a care in the world seems to capture the essence of life, the photos are fun and girly and take me to my happy place.
