Old money and new ways. Sacred heritage, but profane minds. The generation of today in a pseudo depression, a golden prison. A lost corpse wandering in a postmodern reality.

Photographer Anthony Seklaoui and stylist Yumna Mirza put together a story of modernity trapped in a loop of grace and decadence, each following the other; both inspiring contemporary experiences of beauty and glamour. With frames and shots of lyrical strength, The Past is Grotesque taps into a visual richness that explores the limits of nostalgia, in the context of its cultural necessity.
