Roberto Bigano | Plastic Girls 1978-2011

My book on mannequins, documenting over  30 years of evolution in fashion and style.
I have been shooting “Plastic Girls” for over thirty years.
They fascinate me and I find they tell a lot about the culture of a country and the evolution of fashion and style.

 

According to a friend of mine, Beppe Maghenzani, I am an hermeneutic, Greek word difficult to translate but, in my case, means that every photo I take is complete in itself and holds myself in its entirety as well as the fact that I continue to work on this subject, forever.

It is very important to clarify that all mannequins, without exception, were photographed in the stores windows always through the glass and never with special permits. All these wonders are right there, available to anyone who has ability to see them.

Another thing that has always amazed me is the talent of window display stylists, not only to set up the store windows, but also to light, often in extraordinary ways, the objects.
I think every photographer has a lot to learn from them.
