Some of her work strikes me as tacky. Other work is very interesting. So I’m not completely sure what to think.

I love these staged photographs that are almost collages, almost paintings.

“Miss Aniela has become a reference in the domain of fashion photography that flirts with fine art, creating magical glamorous spaces and suspending them in memorable images, with a dreamy aristocracy and a surrealist subtext.”

Aniela is the middle name of Natalie Dybisz, a fine-art fashion photographer based in London, UK. Originating as a self-portrait artist in 2006, Miss Aniela’s work has been exhibited internationally and featured in numerous media including NY Arts, El Pais, ALARM Chicago, Vogue Italia and BBC.





Rebeca Saray

16 02 2015

The amazing thing about fashion photographers (or at least the ones that intrigue me) is their ability to tell stories. Sometimes mysteries. Sometimes comedies.  And they create colours and textures and images that are fascinating. Rebeca Saray must be a very successful photographer. Just look at her name.

Yanzhou Bao

I loved the colours in this photographic/fashion collection. Yanzhou Bao is the photographer.  It as if the pics are bleeding.

Serge Lutens is a French photographer, filmmaker, hair stylist, perfume art-director and fashion designer. Serge Lutens is most well known for his art direction and photography for Japanese cosmetics company Shiseido in the 1980s.

I love his use of flat spaces. Gorgeous.

Damien Blottiere

I love this guy’s work. He is part of the fashion industry and his visual ideas are very exciting. Or maybe he’s helped solve a few problems that I’ve been playing with. In any event I love this guy’s work. (I said that, didn’t I.) Damien Blottiere

POP and ART

25 12 2014

What is art? Tough question. Especially when it involves commerce. And it has always involved commerce. Michelangelo did not paint the Sistine Chapel for nothing. No money, no art. Maybe. But art has been corrupted by too much money. Not that living artists are wealthy. But museums like Getty’s and the new museums in the middle east like Art Dubai have distorted an already bulbous market. And then there is pop culture in general. Rock, rap, fashion etc have created this image of elitist and very rich artists. Some are, some aren’t. Dylan is an artist. Jaggar is an artist but a bad one. And Tony Bennet is a singer. More and more we focus on personality and not the work. And of course, a lot of people (mostly galleries, record, and film producers) are making a lot of money. Its like the royal family in England. Visible but useless.

Peggy Wolf

16 12 2014

Ms. Wolf has bridged the gap between art and fashion. Has used collage in interesting, arresting, and simple ways. The things she does just look neat. They also look commercial. But this does not seem to mininimumalize (I created this word) their charm.

I find this artist’s work both intriguing and disturbing. I’m not even sure of her name. Or his. Amanda Adrien Patout
