Surrealist dreams, Xilitla, Mexico

Some years ago I heard about a surrealist castle hidden in the mountains of the tropical forest somewhere in Mexico. After looking at the first picture of the place, I knew that I had to see it in real life. We drove for almost 7 hours from Mexico City and arrived to Xilitla, a town in San Luis Potosi state. We checked in a nice boutique hotel close that had a terrace overseeing the mountains, and that was conveniently close to the park.

The surrealist sculpture park is called Las Pozas, and was designed by the british artist and poet Edward James. The concrete sculptures are built in different locations on a hill, where there are also natural pools of turquoise water. The nature in the place is jungle-like and the constructions are arranged in a way that makes you feel like you are passing through a labyrinth in Alice in Wonderland. Staircases leading nowhere, and walls with no purpose make the place so exotic and magical.

We decided to photograph some of my favorite pieces from my vintage collection, to focus on the uniqueness of both the place and this clothing treasures. A cape from Yves Saint Laurent from 1976, a Rochas dress from the 90’s and a blue cape from Azzaro in the 80’s. I also used a Stella McCartney orange dress that I bought when I saw it opened the runway show in the Fall/winter 2010 season, a new Eres swimsuit, and a kimono from Kyoto.

I hope you enjoy these series that Ruy and me were so excited to photograph for such a long time.

    C’est un très, très bel endroit, on dirait un peu Rivendell en plus excentrique. Les photos sont réussies (j’adore la cape bleue) 🙂

    They were supposed to remain in pairs, although they seldom did, being rabid individualists, and no times were recorded because Mr. Caprine reckoned competition destroyed the intrinsic pleasure to be gained from an activity. The routes were always circular; starting and finishing in the same place, and the students took off at two-minute intervals wearing the regulation brief nylon shorts for freedom of leg movement, and light, strong jogging shoes. As the routes were usually under the shade of trees, the boys copied their teacher and ran shirtless so as not to overheat.

    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this website.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult to
    get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and
    visual appearance. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Chrome.

    Superb Blog!

    Sick and tired of being bored? There’s nothing at all good to watch on TV these days. How many cat videos can you watch at YouTube? What you really want is some live adult entertainment. That’s what http://www.camgirl.pw is all about. It’s 24/7 excitement like you’ve never seen before. Check it out and tell a friend. Something this good needs to be shared.
