Pictures by Marius Knieling
Obsessed with photography. Obsessed with how photography captures moments. Moments that remind you of wonderful times you had, moments that were so precious to you. Love how you can catch light and shadows and change perspectives, to the extend that people will not understand. Understand the art you created, the love that you made, the single excellence one shot had. Photography is the most important thing for me in my job. I am Obsessed in creating imagery, but also being open for other imagery to open my horizons and give me the inspiration that I am seeking for. Obsessed with the different techniques photography has to offer. the ones that are long forgotten, the ones that may still be used, and the ones that are only used by professionals. analogue PHOTOGRAPHY – not knowing how your picture turned out, only after you developed them. DEVELOPMENT – a process that we need more.
It started with a love story, the love between Kate Moss and Mario Sorrenti. Young and unconditional love and kind of obsession to each other. 1993 Mario Sorrenti shot iconic pictures of Kate Moss during their little love vacation on Virgin Island. The Outcome, of course, was remarkable, and probably would have went viral nowadays. These were the perfect match for the Calvin Klein Obsession Campaign back in the 90s. You could say, that there is a slight Obsession from the Brand Calvin Klein towards the photography taken by Sorrenti, because they decided to use unpublished pictures from the shoot for the newest „Obsessed“-Perfume campaign. The perfect fit to these subtle sexy images and somewhat provocative as the Scent itself, which has a discreet smell and is tender but also reveals a hint of that sexiness. So very sensual with a mixture of femininity and masculinity. The Scent is put together with a top note of sacred citrus and neroli essence. The heart note contains the feminine notes which is violet leaf, white lavender and purple sage whereas the base notes includes the masculine notes musk and ambrette. Obsessed from Calvin Klein is perfect for everyday, because its so light and subtle but still has that something special.
