The model specially selected for this project is the actress/artist Linda Tarafi. Together with fashion photographer Di Makawi theyve been working intensively using archetypes as inspiration for Project Diversities. These archetypes are chosen to portray different aspects of the model and her personality, showing multiple diversities. The pictures/images are categorized by their unique archetype and the selected illustrators have been able to choose, work and illustrate from 16 personalized archetypes along with a brief info and a complete interview with the model/actress/artist; Linda Tarafi (to be found in the exhibition PROJECT DIVERSITIES PART I).
These are the used archetypes:
The Lover • The Self / The Persona • The Saint • The Outlaw • The Child • The Sage • The Virgin • The Warrior • The Explorer • The Actress • The Ruler • The Creator • The Seeker • The Magician • The Character • The Hero
Finally, its the alchemy and transformation of the portray through the diversIty of each unique artistry that make this project interesting, and complete.
