Gemma Booth

Some really fun photography from Gemma Booth. Apparently fashion photography doesn’t always have to include a bunch of naked girls! It must be pretty tough for Booth to take a bad picture when her shoots are so fantastically art-directed and brilliantly styled. Love the series with the little robot!

Lookbook.nu

Your life is officially over. Well, if you are at all interested in fashion it is. I came across Lookbook about a month ago and my productivity went sub-zero for quite awhile. Aspiring fashionistas upload photos of themselves and attach details of exactly what they’re wearing – photos are hyped up and aggregated on the main page. Simple concept, perfect execution.

Ye Rin Mok

I recently discovered the photography of Ye Rin Mok, who has shot for the likes of Anthen, Nylon, Tokion, Theme, Spin, Monocle, and the list really does go on. Looking through Mok’s portfolio I discovered a large number of the photos in which the subject is actually facing away from the camera. I found the gallery jarring, and really quite powerful.

I took a class in art school called Vision, Perception and Science and we learned that there is a little sensor in the brain that is constantly looking for faces. This is why the bumper and headlights on a car look like a smiling face, and also why there is such tension in these photos. There are no faces in these portraits. Read More

André Pinces

Great fashion photography by Vancouver’s own André Pinces. I met him last year and have yet to meet a nicer guy. Actually, you’d be hard pressed to meet him at all, with the schedule he’s got going on. When he’s not out creating personal work, he’s running around shooting for many international publications, including Surface, Vice, and US Weekly.

FLAKE.tv

My man Gavin out in the Netherlands has got some great videos you’ll want to check out if you’re into street fashion. He’s running Flake.tv which is an online urban lifestyle/fashion channel. So far they’ve got six episodes featuring some of Europe’s finest shops like Colette, Surface to Air, and Trust Nobody.
