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.
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. VIEW THE FULL POST —►
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.
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.
I ffffinally got myself an invite to ffffound! Hooray. For whatever reason it is next to impossible to get an invite to join the site.
Anyways, I was poking around the site and came across these great images used to promote ffffound’s in-house t-shirts. What do you do when you can’t get a decent looking model for your photoshoot? You force Paris Hilton and Kate Moss to model your gear by ripping up the photos and sticking them together! Brilliant.
Bêtes de Mode (Beasts of Fashion) by Thomas Couderc and Clement Vauchez. They created 13 images of models superimposed over images of animals and the results are stunning! The works were displayed at Galeries Lafayette Boulevard Hausmann. Peep the rest of the images after the jump!
