First Manifesto of Surrealism

For Spring/Summer 2017, Document travels to Berlin with photographer Marcus Schaefer and stylist Toby Grimditch to explore the power of the unconscious mind in this series of portraits, still life, and key looks from Europe's most imaginative labels. Inspired by André Breton's "First Manifesto of Surrealism," which outlines the importance of pyschic automatism—or the free association of thought—the compilation of imagery attempts to do just that, abandoning reason for freedom.
