…..just to make a change from the usual photographer- or model-themed post, here’s one that is prop-themed. The images themselves come from fashion – Mishka Aoki, Simonetta, No Added Sugar and Bobo Choses (Melanie Rodriguez); and the rest from purely photographic sources. Some of the spherical objects are just that: props – particularly in fashion, where trying to make a shot a little different and memorable often involves some imaginative additions of physical objects  – empty white birdcage syndrome. The use of the glass (and one metallic) balls in the remaining artistic-photographic images is clearly more thought-out, and central to the images themselves (I’d include Melanie Rodriguez in this group, since for her the art seems more important than the fashion). In some the “crystal ball” fortune-telling/future predicting use seems to be in the artist’s mind, with Nicolette and Melanie adding the magnifying quality of a glass sphere as a theme.
