Above are some photos from a Dali inspired Harper’s Bazaar shoot
(photo credit: Richard Burbridge). I’ve always been fascinated by Dali’s artwork so when I came across these photos my heart skipped a beat or two. Burbridge has done a magnificent job. These are definitely pieces of art in their own right.
I’ve included some of Dali’s works below, just for funsies.
Swans Reflecting Elephants
The Burning Giraffe
I probably could have included The Persistence of Memory, but that would have been too cliched. While we’re on the topic, I cannot wait until the Salvador Dali exhibit comes to Melbourne next year. Apparently it will be the largest retrospective Dali exhibition staged in Australia. I’ll have to remember to save up some $$$ so I can fly down and have a looksy. Pity it’s not coming to GoMA, but then again I guess we’ve already had Warhol and Picasso.
To finish things off I’ll leave you with a bit of trivia that may (but most likely never will) come in handy. For those of you who didn’t already know, Dali also designed the Chupa Chups logo. Huzzah!
