The JESTERCATS.COM venture - A photographer's thoughts
We decided to combine our talents, and create products that would carry Vasia's original artwork and my mineral macro photography.
We thought it to be an original idea and possibly the first time ever that such a thing was attempted.Nature is famous for creating the most unique patterns and designs,painted with the most beautiful colurs.The structure and colours of naturaly occuring crystals and minerals can be said to be the pinnacle of nature's tallent.So why not create clothes that celebrate that fact and allow people to safely wear the beauty of minerals found deep underground ?
Nature provides the beauty of its natural resources in the form of minerals,and we provide the world with the abbility to wear that beauty,always respecting those resources. 95% of my pictures that are printed on our created apparels and clothes,are photos of samples that ware taken "in situ",meaning that they were shot on the spot where the mineral was found underground,right at its "birthplace",without removing it from the earth.This way,their natural beauty can be enjoyed both by the wearer of the clothing item,as well as by the future underground explorer ,researcher,or visitor.
