Master and dievca: Killer HeelsPosted: June 5, 2015
Master and dievca took a trip to view the Brooklyn Museum’s exhibition “Killer Heels” which ran from September 10, 2014–March 1, 2015.
A good choice, as dievca finds a high-heeled shoes to be a key accessory in her presentation outfits for Master and Master has great appreciation for dievca’s heels. Viewing the exhibition would be a win-win from both sides.
Much of dievca’s photography had to be dumped with the lighting (and her lack of patience with taking the photos, when the shoes begged to be ogled….), but here are some salvaged photos – in random order – to give you a taste of the shoe offerings.

Killer Heels explored the high-heeled shoe as a fashion statement, fetish object, instrument of power, and outlet of artistic expression for both the designer and the wearer. The high-heeled shoe has developed style and meaning throughout the ages — a constantly shifting and morphing process. Be it wedges, platforms, sharp stilettos, 3D printing, plastic, fiberglass, crystal — the shoes to be viewed offered a statement as to their existence.
