the above images are part of the project dorian’s dish for pup magazine #03.

the inspirational source of this 3rd issue of pup magazine is the writer and playwright oscar wilde. for this project we were inspired by the philosophical and only novel by oscar wilde: the picture of dorian gray.

Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian’s beauty; he believes that Dorian’s beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat’s hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life.

Understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences; all the while his portrait ages and records every soul-corrupting sin

our interpretations are created using vegetable and fruit crackers as starting point. photography by nine ijff.
