Those of you who have visited our blog before probably know that we have a weakness for creative photo ideas. In recent years, Instagram in particular has proved to be an almost indefatigable source of finds. To be honest, this is also the reason why we have become such fans of the platform. Our latest find on Instagram didn’t catch our eye because of photo technique or exciting image compositions, but because with a funny and quite creative idea she managed to make her hair her main source of Instagram success and a tool for socio-political statements.
Wool, wire, threads, a few accessories from time to time and of course an incredible amount of creativity are all that the artist needs. Laetitia Kys feed is really incredible. A teapot, a dog that gives her the paw, a dancing couple on her head… the list of ideas she realizes with her hair is almost endless.
For Laetitia, her hair is above all a means of self-expression, she shows her followers and the world what she is busy with, what she is enthusiastic about and, above all, Laetitia Kys addresses topics that are not funny and entertaining at all. She uses her Instagram reach and the attention she gets for her hair creations to draw attention to issues such as social injustice and sexual harassment or to advocate women’s rights.
A really great woman and artist.
