Dirk Van Saene spring—summer 1991.
Bill Cunningham once wrote in The New York Times about the 1991 summer collection: “Mr. Van Saene’s clothes are distinguished by a gentle sweetness, like laundry hung out in a Swiss backyard with an alpine meadow in the distance.” That comment possibly gets to the very essence of Dirk Van Saene’s master craftmanship. He succeeds in capturing in his clothes, however complex and inventive their construction, however perfect their finish, however far-fetched and unexpected their appearance, the essential feeling of companionship, the impromptu, the playfulness, sensuality and almost comforting nature of a piece of textile. 
Dirk Van Saene: Let’s face it. The main aim of presenting a collection on a catwalk is to get the press excited, so they write about it and publish pictures of it! The theatrical bit is an attempt to make it different from all those other shows…

Selfish Curiosity - Jae Shin Cross
This black and white 35 mm double exposure was made to represent the always looming expectation that white Americans will ask (or not ask) to touch an black American’s hair because it’s “different” or “fun”. This act perpetuates racism by continuing to treat African Americans as foreign and less than someone with straight hair. Certain jobs require black men and women to have straight hair (no braids, no natural, no dreads). Straight hair is the “norm” and what makes most Americans comfortable. The act of basically petting men and women (no matter what their hair looks/feels like) can be insulting and hurtful to the image of their individuality and pride, but is especially impacted on black men and women because of the history conducted here. Obviously, it depends on the person, but being asked to touch their hair is something most black women go through weekly or even daily.

“High latitude gullies”, inside the northeast rim of Porter Crater, 52°S 247°E.
Russell William Porter (1871-1949) was, at times, an arctic explorer, astronomer, telescope engineer, professor of architecture, painter and technical illustrator.
In 1906, Porter joined an expedition to Alaska led by Frederick Cook. While Porter explored and surveyed the surrounding region, Cook and one other explorer set off to climb Denali, North America’s tallest mountain (aka Mount McKinley; 6,000m or 20,000 feet). Cook eventually returned, claiming success, and Porter became the first of many skeptics: Cook’s ascent was soon shown to have been falsified; he had actually climbed and photographed a much smaller nearby mountain now evocatively named “Fake Peak”.
Porter is best remembered for designing and hand-crafting many telescopes and observatories, including the initial sketches for the Griffith Observatory in the Hollywood hills, and contributions to the 200-inch Hale Telescope at Mount Palomar.
