There is a definite growing and living quality to EVERYTHING Holler and Saunders does. IT ENCOMPASSES YOU. Things attain an animation, a character, a life they never previously had. If things were already emitting at 100% before the fact, they will emit at 1000%, 10,000%, 100,000%, exponentially, once they participate in that Holler and Saunders game! There is no explanation for this. Once the dialogue between all aspects is created, the new rules write, others broken, the game is won, and to the victor, the spoils.
I come back to that point. There is no explanation.
The effect is so great, magical, surreal, that the mere task to even photograph it is in vain. Holler and Saunders is not photogenic. You have to be there. In it. It is the only way to grasp that kind of power. Then you can get it, and if you don’t get it then, there is probably something severely wrong with you. Something elemental is missing. You are possibly thinking with the old, boring, inapplicable rules. Exactly the ones you need to unlearn.
Even the most savvy, aerodyte or erudite, sophisticated types will be stumped to grasp any classification for their blogs, tweets, and glossy magazines. Chicness is revealed as a petty condition, and the attempt to analyze them intellectually will go absolutely nowhere.
Again those rules do not apply. Their ideal holds no regard for or respect for the aspirational or the vulgarity of “luxury”.
