I don't know if the thread focus on style and make-up (coz that's the point in that picture, non ?) ...... which would be weird with a photographers title ?

but if i think of PHOTO, i would say : Steven Meisel, Paolo Roversi (I posted some photos in his thread to compare his work with some documentary pictures of this time) and Turbeville (i would say she's influenced by the late 19th-early 20th iconography ... i don't know) .... and if i enlarge the "fashion", i would say Pierre & Gilles (see Nadar)

in Devil wears Prada, you see Grace Codington and her team flipping through Brassai book (Taschen ed.)

about this, history of photography inspiring contemporary photographers, i wish some of them (in FASHION) would get inspired more by the documentary, "everyday-life", and ethnographic photographies of this time.
in this kind, perhaps Steven Klein could be the one that remember me all these old photos of abattoirs (Meatpack things ???)


but MEISEL is really the one to look through if you wanna see history of photography


* interesting thread !

Welcome to the Fashion Spot, loveandconfusion!

This is a good idea, but, as you can see from the members confustion, we need to clarify what you this thread is supposed to be about.

So, is this is a thread about fashion photographers, who were actually shooting in the 1900's through the 1920's?

Or do you mean current fashion photographers who like to shoot in the style of the early 1900's? Like to shoot in a vintage style?

Either one would be a suitable topic for this forum, which is about the actual people (photographers, stylists, makeup artists, fashion editors, etc.) who have created all of those beautiful fashion images that we see in magazines and campaigns. But, in this forum, you will need to actually identify the name of the photographer who shot that image ... and talk a little bit about his work. Who is he, who did he shoot for ... name some fashion magazines his work was in, etc.? Then other members can jump in add other names and discuss their work, too.


Do you happen to know the name of the photographer who shot this?

Ahh sorry everyone, yep I meant current photographers that draw inspiration from the 1900s!

The photo I posted was by a photographer called Mina Kullman. It's not the greatest example but it's the only one I could find!

Thanks for the help!! I'm new to posting..haha

Thanks ... I've changed the thread title slightly ... hopefully it will draw some more ideas from members.

Maybe they can post some examples, too?



I worked with a photographer who was inspired by the famous 20'/30's artist, Tamara de Lempicka, although this is not her usual genre, just a one time inspiration:


Photographer: Sun Myung Park
Stylist: me
Makeup: Ray Filipowicz
Hair: Kazumi

Can you find an example of his work that fits this genre and post it here? Anyone?

when i see this, i immediately think of Roversi portraits ... The strength and 'truth' he manages to capture in his portraits are two things I see in this mugshot of the 1900-1930s ...
His technic (or maybe is it his camera, someone else should say better) also reminds me of some photos of this period.
and of course, the fact he shot in B&W .....
