apricotberlin’s motifs are reminiscent of the pictorial worlds of social media, the visual universes of instagram and snapchat. The duo—Jessica Schwarz and Tiago da Silva—stages short, immersive moments that are sometimes almost melancholic and contemplative, but always poetic and sexy. They have an extraordinary skill in casting. Their models are contemporary icons, simultaneously likable and distanced.
Berlin-based artists Jessica Schwarz and Tiago da Silva originate from completely different worlds. Schwarz initially studied business administration, but even then was always looking for a way to express her creative talents. The proudly self-taught Da Silva has roots in textile design. After both discovered photography as their medium, they’ve been devoting all their passion to it, but still find time for extended excursions through Berlin.
