Venus with two moons
Amanda Seyfried is photographed by Malerie Marder in the latest issue of Un-titled Project, one of the coolest art journals around that invites different artists to explore their creative vision.
I’m really digging Marder’s aesthetic. Her photos explore the human psyche and sexuality in a way that is lullingly calm and personal, yet a bit unsettling at the same time. She also rolls retro and futuristic imagery together in a seamless fashion.
This photo made me think ‘Venus with two moons’ (now apparently espoused as a myth… Venus has no moons).
And this photo is intimate and captivating, pulling the eye in with a puzzling question. Is that a duplication of Seyfried lying on the bed with her? I linger on the image for longer. A body double? An eerie clone?
I wonder how Seyfried’s upcoming film ‘Lovelace’ will turn out- it’s a biopic about adult film star Linda Lovelace from when she was 20 to 32. It’s a far cry from Les Miserables for sure, but I’ve seen Seyfried pulling off some pretty gripping scenes in art house films like ‘Chloe’ in which her character has an affair with Julianne Moore’s character.
