Dana Jasinkevica and Dita Enikova’s wedding dress is a page from a gothic fairy tale come to life. The two Latvian fashion students created Swan in Oil.Before and After from more than a thousand paper ovals, artfully cobbled together to resemble the plumage of an elegant bird. The photo series juxtaposes images of the dress in its pristine glory with its double splattered in black paint. The emerging narrative, the designers say, encapsulates the “painful question of birds suffering from oil pollution in their natural habitat, with swans frequently among the potential victims.”
