Chanel #5    Extravaganza
 In 1973 I collected a series of bottles of perfume Chanel#5.
Seduced by the Cartesian architectonical structure of the bottle I began a visual and photographic exploration of the many possibilities that these geometric forms provided.
After completing a series of “classical” images I went tothe opposite side of the Moon and began the deconstruction of these images and it’s symbolical iconographical interpretation.

All these experimentations were done on film and Polaroid before the computer era and the Photoshop madness.
