Long famed as a controversial figure in the photography community…David Hamilton is the master of the soft focus. His images capture the subtle sensuality of women in their everyday lives. While some of his work may push the envelope according to fashion standards of the 1990’s, today their racy-ness pales in comparison to the bodies of work of, say Tom Ford or Terry Richardson. I think you all know how I feel about nudity (whatever ya got…shake whatcha got) but however you may feel about these, they have greatly influenced modern fashion expression, and are certainly art in their own right…Enjoy!!!
” a distinction must be
made between eroticism
and pornography; the media
have blurred the disparity to
an unforgivable degree…”
“Bêtes de Mode” by HELMO for the Lafayette Galleries in Paris.
Bêtes de Mode by HELMO is an extremely interesting series that represents more an artistic eye than a fashion eye. The title translates to “fashion animals”. This shoot pairs models with interesting animals that mesh well. Each photo is blue and black, with red overlay. The images are fresh and sharp without being over conceptualized.
See Collectiva for the entire series of 11 pictures.
The last shot here is my personal favorite.
