The Polaroids of Cathleen NAUNDORF

Photographs by Cathleen Naundorf
Foreword by Matthias Harder


Cathleen Naundorf has been working on a haute couture serie called „Un rêve de mode“ from 2005 to 2011. She concentrated on six couture houses: Chanel, Dior, Gaultier, Lacroix, Elie Saab and Valentino.
In reconition of her remarkable achievements as a photographer, she was privileged to have free access to all collections of the fashion houses in order to create her lavish film set productions.



“Un rêve de mode” the unique Polaroid photos correspond to the exclusivity of the Haute-Couture designs. Today the artist sees Haute Couture as the last element of free expression within the world of fashion production. Time and memories become blurred as we contemplate her delicate, unusual pictures, compiled from some 150 shooting sessions; the representation of reality gives way to the impression of subtle dream sequences. After all, fashion photography has always been about beauty and dreams – as well as their possible realisation in one’s own life. Some of Cathleen Naundorf’s Polaroids may contain the stuff of which icons are made, although – or perhaps because – they are disconnected from time.”
