About the artist

"See, learn and understand the world"

As a celebrated photo model, Delia Dickmann was herself a motif for photographic art for decades. Productions for Armani Givenchy, Kodak and many more made her travel around the world. Learning to see and to understand the world in its beauty but also in its transitoriness are still the driving force behind her own artistic work as a photographer.

Works | Series

To create this series, Delia Dickmann, a famous Armani model, travels around the world with Barbie. The Barbie doll is a perfect figure for Delia to realize her ideas worldwide with an exciting model. The styling, the outfit and also the setting are designed by herself at the original locations. The trick is to position Barbie proportionally to the background. Her work is very spontaneous, as she creates and photographs matching outfits immediately, inspired by the location, colors and situations.

It was the cherry blossom for which the artist boarded the plane to Tokyo at very short notice. She describes it as amazing how comfortable she felt in this country right away.

The cherry blossom has a deep meaning in Japan. It stands for the ephemeral, the fast-moving. The realization that life can end at any moment, that nothing is permanent, shapes the culture of the Japanese and the Cherry Blossom Festival in a special way. Capturing this fleeting moment and at the same time being an observer of how the Japanese experience this moment was incredibly fascinating for Delia.

Even in the post-processing of her trip, the experience did not let her go. It is like a journey into the inside of being human, a mediation on the big questions of life, the beauty of the moment, happiness but also the transience of one’s own existence and the power of a new beginning.

You can admire many works at the Nikko Hotel Düsseldorf.
