Wondering through an antiques emporium, I looked up and saw a clutch of chandeliers hanging on thick, rusted chains from a beam.
I photographed them, but somehow I wasn't able to capture what it was that they provoked in my mind – a sense of opulent fantasy... glittering intrigue... decadent riches, eccentric dinner parties.
And now I have discovered that one of my favourite film directors, Baz Luhrmann, has just gone and done all this for me in his latest project, an advertisement for a high street fashion chain. Unfortunately, in my opinion, it's the clothes they are promoting that let this little film down, but otherwise I love what he was reaching for. What do you think?
