Artistic Fashion Photography (Expansio Continere) by Daniela Echeverry

Meaning “expansion and containment”, Expansio continere is inspired in a unique specie of tree that grows up in Madagascar island: Baobab.

In damping months, the tree stores water in his thick trunk, in order to survive without water in the next 9 dry months to come.

These outfits talk about growing as a biological process and how the purpose is the containment of water, just like the Baobab tree. Besides, they’re considered as a high couture, due to their delicacy and manual construction.
