Falling Up

Falling Up

Photography/Words - Elias Wessel

Styling - Priscilla Polley


Falling is something involuntarily. Something threatening you get forced to. In contrast "Up" is a synonym for success. This aporia results out of the two contrary moving directions: Down = falling and Up = Up. A conflict which is indissoluble at my current period of life because "Falling" as well as "Up" relate to my private and professional areas of life which were strongly linked over the past 9 years.


There are plenty of personal experiences, thoughts, symbols and metaphors covered in Falling Up as well as analogies to "Mary Poppins", "Rumpelstiltskin" and the "Shock Headed Peter" which finally allow "Falling Up" to make a statement about the current art and fashion industry and to be a modern fairy tale out of my personal past, present and future.
