Anders Edström - Photographer
Since we haven't a thread on Anders...beautiful imagery he captures...quite pristine and enigmaticallz simplistic.

He's brilliant. Love his work for Purple. It's very casual and simple, but not in a throwaway trash way like Terry Richardson and, say, Magnus Unnar. His work is really quite beautiful.

Thanks for the thread, Scott!

You're right. And I'd actually compare his work with the likes of Wolfgang Tillmans. He's just got a similar quality...in that,as you say,a casual sort of poetry that he does so well. And his lensed campaigns for Miu Miu are the only one's that have ever caught my eye with so much resonance.

There's an Ann-Sofie Back/Sonia Rykiel-styled editorial from Purple I'll get up later.

You're both quite welcome

Thank´s Scott for bringing Anders in! It´s easy to see why he get along so well with Ann-Sofie, they seem to share the same love/hate relation to everything fashion. Kind of trying to reveal and embrace it at the same time...sort of.
There´s a nice flip-through-able preview of one of his books at:

You're welcome,Rozzetta!

Yeah,I was reading about his book whilst trying to find images for the thread...looks really good.

I love this description:
Quote:
Anders Edström creates small sequences of sparse images which elaborate a filmic narrative of inconsequential moments, stories of moments in between moments. “They appear as the aftermath of some wire brush cleaning of a slate. To which elements were slowly added. Family, some nature, friends, a bit of community, décor. Images pulled from the gaps between changing nappies, having meals, talking, getting from here to there…” (Curtis Winter).
As for he and Ann-Sofie....they've been friends for a very long time. He shoots all her look-books and they even worked together when she styled for Miu Miu. Lest to mention,their collaborations in Self Service and Purple. I think they met back when she was still attending school in London....and they do share the same ambivalence for fashion. They have an interesting dynamic when they work together.

Thanks for the info! I just knew they´ve done a lot of work together. I guess she is the one that takes credit for him being labeled as a fashionphotographer, on his own he is more of an artist to me (which is a good thing of course). His work reminds me alot of Ola Rindal, coulnd´t find a thread for him anywhere here though. If I don´t find it I might have to start one
