Her Precious Terrarium
The high fashion editorial “Her Precious Terrarium” by 2b+photo (Tobias Meier) depicts a woman holding a terrarium. Inside the terrarium is a beautiful little woman, dressed in Antonio Grimaldi couture.
The overall surrealist feel of this editorial is heightened when we see that the woman inside the terrarium is a tiny version of the woman holding the terrarium.
With cheeky scenes of the woman holding and admiring her terrarium, with what is essentially a beautiful little version of herself, the editorial gives a playful nod to the narcissistic quality of today’s world.
The stark black backdrop increases the surrealist feel, and makes the colourful jewelry, dresses and greenery pop.
This editorial is another unique masterpiece, characteristic of the bold concepts seen in 2b+photo’s work.
