Happy Easter everybody! I bet you are all eggcited (sorry for the lame joke ;-) ) about the long weekend, colouring eggs and eating chocolate. I am so glad I can finally share this post with you because I barely couldn't keep it to myself.
As a fan of the art of Jeff Koons, I was intrigued when I discovered shiny metallic chocolate bunnies at the shops that reminded me a lot of the work of the famous artist. Mister Koons had nothing to do with them, but I wouldn't be surprised if the packaging designer of the bunnies was a fellow Koons lover and balloon dog fan.
When a giant version of the bunnies arrived at my local petrol station to make it look cheerful, I just knew I needed to get my fingers on one for a shoot.
I can't say if the lady at the checkout had a clear idea of what we planned to do with her bunny, but I am grateful she lent it to us, and we brought it back safely. It must have been quite a view for the pedestrians when my photographer and I walked through the streets carrying this green long-eared giant. No fancy outfit could have topped the amount of surprised looks we got.
And here we are: Sara in metallic bunny land. I felt a little bit like a model in a Tim Walker shoot (yes I know it's light years away, but still closer than I ever was) in my pastel rainbow dress and with a unicorn on my head. This is how Easter should be, yay!
