Mod Couples

Mod couples is a series photographed by Carlotta Cardana focusing on double portraits of people who lead a mod lifestyle in aesthetics if nothing else. Cardana was drawn to couples over individuals because of the way their identities blend together, in her words, "I am also quite interested in the relationship between a person and his or her surrounding environment, in seeing how they complement each other. Consequently, I took elaborate planning out of the equation when making these pictures: the couples chose what to wear and where to be photographed. The world depicted in the pictures is entirely the world they have created for themselves." First attracted to their eye-catching style, the portraits go beyond their appearance and delve further into the lifestyle from the styling of their homes to musical preferences and other subculture elements. It's a fascinating and inspiring series for any vintage lover.
