what strange beauty in these portraits of young danish woman in traditional costume.  the headdress, called a strude, is also the title of this series of photographs by Trine Søndergaard.  the strude protects the face from the elements, but out of context is an other worldly mask.  the textiles, light, and aura are so interesting to me, so i can't wait to see this show in person at bruce silverstein gallery.  it's up until june 26th in nyc.

  1. Incredible! such a soft and eerie vibe in the photos, and the girls' expressions. Also, what a beautiful alternative to the balaclava!
