POSTCARDS FROM UZBEKISTAN /// travel film
Part of a series of short films and still photography commissioned for the British Council’s ‘New Silk Road’ project with fashion designers Basso & Brooke which culminated in an exhibition at the Design Museum in London.
“Last year, Anglo-Brazilian design duo Basso & Brooke embarked on an unusual research trip. The print obsessed pair set off along the great and ancient Silk Road in Uzbekistan. Along the way, they drew inspiration from the landscape, history and fabrics they encountered. Now, their silk route trail inspired collection is on show at the Design Museum.
With them for the ride was film-maker and regular Basso & Brooke collaborator Chloe de Carvalho who, as well as documenting the trip, made a 10 minute film full of folk-dancing, catwalk shows and ornate architecture that accompanies the exhibition.” READ MORE
