Fashion Photography as Art I am so excited to be moonlighting here at Chic Modern Vintage! Tonia, Thank you so much for having me. Do you guys watch Work of Art on Bravo? This past week was the finale, and the guest judge was photographer David LaChapelle. When introducing him they said he, more than any other photographer had blurred the lines between fashion and fine art photography. What an interesting concept and one I have explored in my own artwork. I went to David's website to explores some of his work.
Isn't this amazing? It almost looks like a painting...
I love the stories you could make up about this piece. These pieces definitely stand on their own as fine art, but would also work in any fashion spread. I am a fine art/ architectural photographer in Atlanta, GA, and Sunday morning I delivered a new piece to a client's home.
The client said she was going to frame the piece and hang it in her terrace level. It got me to thinking about how closely this resembles fashion photography and how blurred the lines have become.
If you are interested in this subject, I recommend watching the documentary The September Issue, which shows the editors at Vogue putting together their September Issue. there are some great scenes of them photographing fashion spreads. The results are amazing, and definitely qualify as fine art. Thank you so much for letting me spotlight on such an inspirational blog! It has been an honor.
