Alessandro Merlo - Photography

Alessandro Merlo is an Italian photographer living and working in London. We love his style, which brings together 'queer' identities, fashion photography and portraiture in a very unique way. You can check out more of his work on his site over here.

Oleg Oprisco - Photography

Oleg Oprisco is a Ukrainian fine art photographer who blends fashion, portraiture and of course fine art photography to create a unique visual style that is so appealing. What sets him apart and makes his work extra interesting, is that he shoots on film. This means everything you see in these photographs had to be created the old fashioned way - no photo manipulation techniques and no chance to 'fix it in post'! What a great commitment to the art.

Estelle Hanania - Photography
Estelle Hanania is a French photographer who blurs the lines between fashion, fine art and documentary photography. She photographs 'real people', not models, which allows the relationships they have with each other to become part of her work.

We absolutely love it!

Fabrice Monteiro - Photography

Fabrice Monteiro is a photographer working out of Dakar, Senegal. For this project, entitled: The Prophecy, he worked with a local costume designer, Doulsy, to create a set of fantastical images that imagine what the future of West Africa might look like. These images get even more interesting though, when you learn that they are inspired by local folklore and so intricately composed that they took two years to complete. Incredible work!

Brett Lloyd Photography

Brett Lloyd is a British photographer with a stark, considered aesthetic that we felt we had to share.

Check out a selection of his work below.

Academy Student is named the only African finalist for the ADAA 2016!

The Adobe Design Achievement Awards (ADAA) happen every year, recognising the best in creative work from around the world. We've got amazing news to share; Lucia Petschnig, a student at the academy, was name as the only finalist for ADAA 2016 from the entire African continent! To give you an idea of the numbers involved in the competition (and how well Lucia has done) - there were over 5300 original entries, 1400 semfinalists and only 24 finalists. That's amazing! Her work, 21st Century Pinup Girls imagines the pinup look from the 50s reimagined for modern life. Have a look at her amazing work below.

Good luck Lucia!

Joshua Anderson - Photography

Joshua Anderson is a young photographer from Texas who has a great eye for images. Blurring the lines between portraiture, fashion and surrealism, he is carving out a space that is all his own. His portraits have such a nostalgic, soft feel while at the same time when you look at his fashion work, it becomes angular and intense very quickly. Amazing stuff! Here we've shared just a taste of his work, but you can see more at his site. And we suggest you do!

Axe Black
We love these ads by Ponce from Buenos Aires for Axe's new range of Black Perfumes. With an irreverent take on fashion photography and a fun message that is on brand with Axe - these really are fun. And at the end of the day they do a great job of telling the story of the brand - if you wear their products, you'll look (and smell) great, no matter what you're doing.
Kope | Figgins Photography

Cape Town's own Kope | Figgins are an up-and-coming photography duo who not only create beautiful images, but also have a sense of humour. To get an idea of their humour - check out their website, a nod to the Internet circa 1997 and try not to laugh out loud.

They do a lot of fashion and portraiture, with their signature crisp 90s aesthetic. Great, great work.

For a more up-to-date angle on their work, check out their tumblr, which they add to often.

 

French Connection - From Sketch to Store
6fd85bde05fe187e132cc78a1e4f7dcd.jpeg

d29e6d4d7ed7f9f3b926bca318b3be0a French Connection wanted to show their consumers how quickly they go from designing their clothes to finishing their clothes and having them ready to wear. What better way than to get well-known photographer Rankin to shoot some beautiful models wearing nothing but 'sketches'?

This campaign has an extra, shareable component though, which takes full advantage of Tumblr culture and the shareability of gifs. What a great way to bring photography to life!

Apparently, this is also the first black and white campaign to be run by French Connection in its history - a fairly good attempt for their first try, we must say...

I See A Different You

I See A Different You are a trio working out Soweto, helping to define the modern aesthetic of South Africa. Their work straddles the line between fashion photography and documentary photography, showing their subjects (very often the three guys from I See A Different You) wearing cutting edge fashion in unexpected or even undesirable places.

This mixing of the desirable and the undesirable brings something entirely unique and quintessentially South African to the table. Twins, Justice and Innocent Mukheli and Vuyo Mpantsha, the three men who make up I See A Different You, are without a doubt some of the most interesting young South African photographers and art directors working today and if their current fame is anything to go by, this is not the last we will hear from them.

We suggest you get acquainted with them now, before they get so famous your mom tells you about them.
