Escape from Circumstances can be described as a "school of seeing." In the past Karl Lagerfeld's photographic work has been characterised by the following subjects: landscape, body-parts and architecture. These topics are reflected in some of his books, in Partipris and Casa Malaparte, to name but a few. This study seems to be the logical consequence of this pursuit and the key to his current creative power. In full-bleed plates Lagerfeld presents the different forms of nature, alongside elements of the human body. The human body stands as a "model" for various types of buildings, which are, in an ideal case, in harmony with the human being and nature. The arrangement of these pictures illustrate the anthropomorphic form in its natural and artificial environments.
