I’m not one for fashion blogs but I do respect people who put sincere effort into bringing quality content to the internet. I stumbled across Citizens of the World through their ‘Literally Fiction’ photo shoot (photographer: Dominic Loneragan) where they paired lingerie with cheesy self-help books. It’s beautifully shot with a sort of Playboy-esque energy. The end result is quite funny and self-effacing.
London-based photographer Madame Peripetie’s conceptual series Metamorphosis was created for the jewelry designer Daisy Feng. Shrouded in a sheet and adorned with the delicate, spider web-like jewlery, a woman’s body becomes transformed into something architectural. The series is all about that transformation. It takes something as familiar as the female form and quite literally objectifies […]
Based on the Central Coast, in New South Wales, Kiah Kinchella is a self-proclaimed vintage fashion photographer. Picking up a camera at the age of 16, Kinchella shot everything and anything until settling into her style: a natural and vivid take on fashion photography. Ditching the studio and taking to the streets, Kinchella produces images […]
Baliant Barna is a young Hungarian fashion photographer who recently moved to London. In this stunning video, entitled Parasominia (the term for disorders that occur during the transition between wakefulness and REM sleep), Barna and make-up artist Kata Kertez team up to create something truly special for the recent Fashion Festival in Budapest.
Oliver Blohm has a passion for chemistry and an eye for the morbid. His work is a mystic and surreal, a collection of slim models and strange happenings in and around Berlin, where he lives. Already published and sought after by the fashion world, Blohm’s work challenges the boundaries of modern photography.
Italian Filippo Del Vita and Argentinean Laura Garcia Serventi accentuate already beautiful fashion and create pieces of art in the process under the umbrella of their company, Effelle Photography. No wonder all the notable fashion magazines want to work with them.
You can be sure that the big fashion magazines such as Harpers Bazaar, TUSH and Vogue know what they’re doing when they’re booking Paul Scala. Because they know that he knows. His work is so en vogue that it doesn’t even matter if it’s a fashion still or a portrait of a celebrity like Tony Ward. It’ll blow your mind anyways.
Rarely do I find myself losing track of time due to endless re-examination of images. Within a few days of coming across Russian photographer Elizaveta Porodina’s work, I had already scrutinized her entire portfolio more than ten times. Porodina’s portfolio is full of photographs radiating conceptual and aesthetic beauty. The photographer’s personality and eccentricities flow through her work on a consistent basis.
Diana Chire, photographer, film-maker and model. This girl is cute, charismatic and brimming with raw talent. Her fashion photography has elements of Jurgen Teller about it, but with an incredibly authentic edge. Watch this space, there’s plenty more to come.
This was the first site dedicated to the one of the masters of fashion photography, Guy Bourdin, who worked French Vogue for almost 30 years. Before it, there was literally only three of his pictures on the internet and it looked as if he had been totally forgotten. Now it seems he is more famous than when he was alive. My favourite photos have always been the shoe campaigns he shot over many years for Charles Jourdan.
Marvin Joseph, a fashion photographer who has followed a winding path to Sydney, has found more than a few die-hard fans in the models he photographs, as well the clients that seek him out. He believes that we are born to create and has his sights, and his heart, now firmly set on that creative beacon-of-dreams, New York City.
These stunning photographs by award-winning Italian photographer Fulvio Bonavia are not only delectable and endlessly enticing, they also point to the growing trend towards meshing food, art and fashion in one giant grab bag of styles. These are taken from his latest book, A Matter of Taste.
Fumie Sasabuchi uses fashion photography as source images for her collaged drawings. The Japanese-born artist’s pieces have a lyricism about them, recalling the anatomical drawings of Di Vinci as well as classical figurative paintings, with a preoccupation with death and the alteration of surfaces.
Fashion photographer Melvin Sokolsky’s works from 1960s are still fresh, timeless and so inspiring. Or should I say that they look newer than what’s out there in fashion photography world now? Ah, the world before Photoshop.
