Perfume – Story of a murder (cinematic self portrait project)

Reenacting the great story of Patrick Süskind “Perfume – The story of a murderer” (Das Parfüm – Geschichte eines Mörders) as a series of self portraits with my real life partner and me.

The series is inspired by the film, as well as other stories/films and my imagination of how the story should look like.

This posts features the results from summer 2019 – March 2020. More to come in 2020.

More scenes to come in 2020!

A crossover between cosplay and set-design exercise in my very own home.
