Pre-Conscience/Conscience, or PCS/CS for short, is an experimental art series by fashion photographer Julien Vallon who has clients such as Kanye West, Vogue, L’Officiel Brasil and Adidas. This artful nude series is “a long reflection on subconscious movement.” Julien explains: “During several hours, according to Jung’s precepts, I try to open the inside world of my models to reveal their true identity through their own movement, until each impulse becomes natural.”

Musically, you had your Bowies to disco, disco to punk, and a whole lotta Pink Floyd in there, too. Which is fine, some of it good. Hey, I love Fleetwood Mac. And did we mention cocaine?

Guy Bourdin was a painter and legendary fashion photographer whose style has been pervasively appropriated in pop culture. Mentored by Man Ray, he avoided the limelight, focusing strictly on the creation of arresting pictures. Despite staging surreal mise en scènes for high-end brands like Vogue, fashion was the last thing on his mind. Sometimes, on the set of his shoots, Bourdin would bring out a super-8 cine camera, an example of which you can watch above.
