Essential Photography: 2009

Actor Andrew Garfield and model Lily Cole

Inspired by the Metropolitan Opera's production of Hänsel und Gretel, Vogue Creative Director Grace Coddington and photographer Annie Leibovitz give the classic fairy tale a sublime twist. Hansel and Gretel are no longer children, but adults. The wicked witch, likewise, ages backwards.

These photographs were published in Vogue's December 2009 issue, the year Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus was released. Two of Imaginarium's young stars — the eternally boyish Andrew Garfield and the doll-like model, Lily Cole — were cast as Hansel and Gretel.

As for the wicked witch, they got a feisty lady named Lady Gaga. Good choice.

I am so in love with Andew Garfield. I can't believe I didn't recognize him in Imaginarium.. Blame it on Jude Law's receeding hairline. It was all I could focus on.

Visual Velocity said...

citybuoy: Kawawa naman si Jude Law, kasalanan niya nanaman. lol

dreamwalker: Napag-usapan ka namin kanina sa office. Hindi ko na maalala kung anong context. Memory lapse ito.

Amazing! And just like Citybouy, I am very much in love and is having a virtual relationship with Andrew Garfield since "Social Network."

Visual Velocity said...

Désolé Boy: I have a copy of Social Network. Haven't seen it yet, though. Heheh

Saw Andrew in Boy A and Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus. There's this other short film. Forgot the title. I'm getting old. My memory's going bonkers. lol
