11.11.11 our 5th group Trash The Dress photography event.
Trash The Dress photography is a wellknown phenomenon in the US since the late 90's. "Trash the dress" is the art of destruction or deconstruction of a brides wedding dress to create a new artwork that the bride would be proud to display on their wall. [Wikipedia]
'Drown the Gown', 'Running of the Brides' and 'Rock The Frock' are similar names for this fine art photography, mixed with beauty, fashion and glamour photography.
In the Netherlands Melanie Rijkers (MeRy) & Hans van Nunen of Artstudio23.com created the first group event in 2008. 09.09.09 was the first event to be known worldwide, with 99+ women wearing their wedding dress once more. 10.10.10, 11.11.11 and 12.12.12 www.facebook.com/TrashTheDressEU
