Kintsukuroi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or silver and understanding that the piece is more beautiful for having been broken and New York wedding photographer KYLEE YEE has demonstrated that in the most serene and sublime way with this refined editorial. Keeping things simple the team created a story of the healing process from broken and hurting, to feeling whole again – a process that is experienced by everyone at some point, in some way or another.
Kylie tells us, “For the longest time I wanted to create a shoot around this beautiful Kintsugi art. To show that instead of a break diminishing the items appeal, the mending process gives it a new sense of vitality and resilience, raising appreciation of the piece to even greater heights. The true life of the bowl actually began the moment it was dropped.
What a beautiful metaphor for life and love.”
