It was a happy coincidence coming into the works of BABYHOUSE NEW YORK, "the collaborative brainchild" of Mark Fitton and Suzanne Darcy. It had been few days since NYFWM came to a close and we were deep into the 'secondlayer' hashtag seeking out coverage from others in attendance of the SS17 presentation at Skylight Clarkson. There were a few images scattered to the #secondlayer grid that were unlike any other - there was a undying narrative and they stood out from everything else we had seen. The common denominator: @babyhousenewyork.
BABYHOUSE NEW YORK 'explores the marriage of analog photography and mixed media video', and they do so with conviction; deep shadows, heavy contrast, gradience, geometrically dissected imagery & video.
If you're a fan of convention, scroll no more... then give your head a shake. Below are our selects from the BABYHOUSE NEW YORK coverage of SECOND/LAYER's SS17 presentation.
