Capturing Beauty…

March 3, 2012

Probably the most iconic fashion photographer working at the moment, Mario Testino has worked for a huge range of magazines and publications from Vogue to Vanity Fair.
He is perhaps most famous for his portrait, which he has taken of countless celebrities, always capturing them at their best.
I love how his pictures always exude femininity and beauty..

‘My pictures are my eyes, I photograph what I seeā€”and what I want to see.’ – Mario Testino

A Quote From Marc Jacobs…

February 10, 2012

‘I like the sort of ‘nothingness’ of the jeans and t-shirt. I feel that’s about as close as I can get to the future because it seems like something so old that will always be, so I feel it’s a safe bet for the future.’ – Marc Jacobs

Photography and zest…

1933

A rather lovely tweeter told me to look at the National Media Museum website, which has tons of vintage images and photography.
I particularly fell in love with some of Zoltan Glass’ work.
Zoltan Glass was a car enthusiast, so started his career taking photos of cars and automobiles. However when he moved to London, he started fashion photography as well.
I love how he just captures people’s spirit and zest for life and I think it is this which makes his photos so enchanting..

‘Zest is the secret of all beauty. There is no beauty that is attractive without zest.’ – Christian Dior
