Antipodium fashion

 on 


Here is a first set of fashion photographs I have taken at the 2009 Rosemount Sydney Fashion Festival.

Antipodium fashion label was established in 2006. It began with a one-off collection for London’s Antipodium boutique. Finch and company founder Ashe Peacock and his sister Fenella, to combine their designs with her experience and create a new range for the store. Antipodium gained an instant popularity and the trio turned their attentions to the project full-time. In each of their five major collections Antipodium has remained true to a simple aesthetic: unique, beautiful pieces that are clever, remarkably cool and undeniably sexy.

Photographer and model in George Street

 on 


This photograph of a photographer taking photograph of a model with tattooed stars on her arm in the George Street reminds me of a dialog I had recently on an Internet forum on subject of street photography.

One of the studio photographers in response to the claim that street photographers meet a lot of people responded that he too meets a lot of people in the street and than … he takes them to the studio to take photographs. There is something tragic and yet funny at the same time that he could not comprehend how talking a person from the street into a studio would remove any authentic character from the person.

The scene of the attractive model in light dress on a cold day is the opposite situation. Here is a studio taken into the street to get some “urban” credence. Will it work? Only if you take photographs for glossy magazines, where reality doesn’t rate.
