This is a wonderful video series from Nowness, curated a time ago. “BUT” I thought that it was time to re-introduce it -again- for the pleasure of your sens, eyes, some humour some choking some big winks to the saddest part of what defines beauty. As old is this series it is still accurate and unfortunately for our reality will probably remain true for a while. Although happy are those talented directors all inspired by it and definitely creates the most eloquent videos along the topic. Thanks to you talents
