Cosmopolitan Layered World
For this series Natalie Otalora travels the world photographing different cities, places and cultures before turning her photos into modern-day Impressionistic artwork. She mixes her photos with magazine cut-outs typographical fonts and street art techniques to transform hundreds of images, mediums and materials into great compositions that tell hundreds of stories at once.
This serie touches upon Social media and brand awareness, Now a days social media is much more than a trend. It’s become an essential part of the fabric of modern society. It’s hard to overestimate how much of an impact social media now has on our world. This is true on many levels, such as the way we socialize, the way we gain access to information, the way we do business and the way we consume brands.
With this serie Natalie Otalora approaches Consumerism and Women empowerment. Consumerism and the way it shapes our wants, desires, and longings in such a way that we want not simply to acquire things because they are useful, but more so, because of what they say about us and mean to us. Chanel N.5 is the elixir that became the worlds most wanted and iconic fragrance of all times for decades and decades. It became a scent that can smell radically different from one woman to another, remarking that each woman is different and beautiful in her own essence. Natalie Otalora uses Chanel as a symbol of elegance, luxury and pure women empowerment.
“I remember seeing those amazing CHANEL advertising campaigns on billboards and magazines as a child and wondering if I’d ever be grown-up enough to wear Chanel myself”
