Marilyn was actually responsible for the Stern image looking like that. I seem to remember him saying that she wanted to see all of the proof sheets before he developed any of the photographs, he then had them delivered to her and when she returned them she had marked all of the images she did not want him to use with the red pen so that they could never be printed. Unfortunately for her but fortunately for us, he used them anyway.

anyway, i love them.

Hello everybody,
This is my first post here, and first and foremost I would like to say that this site has been an excellent source of information. Also I am very happy that people share my enthusiasm for fashion photography. Now my question with regards to the Craig McDean and Erwin Blumenfeld images is at what point does "inspiration" become a blatant rip off. Just a few months ago, in an issue of Clear magazine was some photographer, I think his name was Klas Stromme, whose editorial was a blatant rip off of Guy Bourdins images. Evrything from blood/paint coming out of the electric socket to that one shot with woman strected ove rthe couch looking into the mirror + alot more. The only difference with the images was the change in color schemes. Nowhere in this editorial is Guy Bourdon mentioned, nor does Craig McDean even mention Erwin Blumenfeld. It seems like fashion photography in the US is so closed and non-inviting for new ideas and thoughts that people are afraid to try new things or push their ideas. Its so competitive that they are simply redoing older photographs. I would love peoples opinions on this. I have been an assistant for the last 4 years and I cant even begin to tell you the amount of photographers that asked me how another photographer lights his images. Its honestly quite sad.
thanks,
krizzlec

Speaking of mert and marcus they seem to have been ripped off many times by camilla akrans.


camilla source: mariemaud

m&m source: yourbestfriend


camilla source: mariemaud


m&m source: hfgl



camilla source: lund lund







m&m source: style.com



camilla source lund lund


m&m source amazon.com

its a little too much to ignore and since the mert and marcus pictures were published first...

^The totally ripped of Madonna's SEX photos for the Courtney Love POP story.

And their Armani Jeans ads with Agyness looked so much like some of Lindberghs work!

No, they rip off everyone under the sun, including Meisel quite often.

Ive never really noticed similarities with meisel or lindbergh, but i'd love to see some pics. As for Newton, Bourdin, Man Ray, Ritts those dont really bother me because they're not working anymore. Also Ive never see a mert and marcus photograph and thought it was meisel or lindbergh whereas i often think camilla's photographs have been done by mert and marcus. Maybe its just me. Im vey young andperhaps you guys have just seen more than I have.
