Gene Kelly Dancing

Gjon Mili photographed for LIFE from 1939 until his death in 1984.
He photographed many celebrities from Gene Kelly to Pablo Picasso.
Mili trained as an engineer and was extremely interested in technology. He was actually one of the first people to use the electric flash for photography.
I think his work reflects his love for technology because it truly captures movement and is so dynamic and expressive..

A stroll through SoHo..

November 29, 2012

Last weekend I was wandering round SoHo, doing some shopping when I stumbled upon a small Marilyn Monroe exhibit. It had been put on by Erno Lazlo as a gift to New York and if that wasn’t enough, it was also free!

The exhibit featured clothes that Monroe had worn as well as some of her personal items. In many cases, it showed the item and then a photo of Marilyn wearing it. It was only small, but I really enjoyed it, and finding it out of the blue made it even better..

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

Cecil Beaton is regarded as one of the greatest photographers ever.
He photographs fashion and portraits and has taken pictures of some of the most well-known celebrities and icons of the last century.
I love the beauty his portraits bring out and the way he captures private and more touching moments..
