thanks for the new pics ybf

i like the editorial for 10, but i find the 4th picture in it to be a bit awkward
the other thing that throws me off in that ed is the styling in terms of using ballet slippers for a man--that's just not something i feel that i can personally get behind style-wise

I very much like the Vogue Russia editorial in post #31 though...
the haziness of the photos as well as the versatility in framing and focus are intriguing

Serge Leblon

Photographer

Born in 1964, the Belgian photographer Serge Leblon originally studied cinematography at the INSAS in Brussels. From there, he began a career in photo-reportage, principally working in the Middle East and covering the war in Lebanon. Growing tired of being a reporter, Leblon started a project on 'formalisation and incommunicability' and a subsequent editorial project for The Face led to further work in fashion. He has since published work in publications including Dazed & Confused, Big, Jalouse, i-D, Self Service, Doing Bird and Purple. He has also conducted advertising campaigns for brands including Tsumori Chisato and Cacharel. In addition, Leblon has featured in exhibitions held in New York, Brussels and Tokyo. He published his first monograph in 2000, 'Serge Leblon', published by Base.

I'm loving the 'flare' effect in his images. It gives them such a delicious edge.

for those in Paris... Serge Leblon is currently having an exhibition at La Bank
http://www.bankgalerie.com/

here is Le Monde paper about this exhibit' :

Les flous rêveurs de Serge Leblon

LE MONDE | 21.09.07 | 19h17 • Mis à jour le 21.09.07 | 19h17

Le Belge Serge Leblon a fait carrière dans la mode. De cet univers, il a gardé un goût pour les couleurs vives et les détails vestimentaires. Et peut-être aussi cette fascination étrange autant qu'entêtée pour les chevelures féminines, leurs textures et leurs infinis dégradés de blonds, bruns, roux.
Galerie B.A.N.K., à Paris, le photographe expose une série aux accents tout baudelairiens : des portraits où la personne, prise de dos, s'efface derrière la masse ondulante de ses cheveux. Mais il serait illusoire d'y voir un substitut au visage : ce rideau séduisant lui-même se dérobe, par un jeu de flou qui maintient à distance le spectateur.
Sans manipulation informatique, juste en jouant sur la mise au point lors de la prise de vue, le photographe plonge toute ses images, portraits, scènes de rue ou paysages, dans un flou épais qui leur confère une tonalité insaisissable et irréelle. L'oeil peine, cherche en vain où se fixer.
Alors que le personnage central se perd dans un brouillard rêveur, c'est plutôt un détail ou un fond a priori sans intérêt qui reste net : la main d'une jeune fille serrée sur un document ou bien le mur pouilleux et pelé devant lequel passe une femme distinguée - mais floue. Les couleurs chaudes, les motifs vagues, font presque ressembler ces photos à des Polaroid... comme si l'on avait affaire ici à des souvenirs forts et lumineux, mais distordus par le temps et la nostalgie.
Serge Leblon donne à voir quelques séduisants portraits de célébrités - les actrices Charlotte Gainsbourg et Isabelle Huppert sont moins des icônes glamour que des âmes mélancoliques, les cheveux au vent, perdues dans le songe d'un autre.
Mais ce sont surtout ses paysages qui sont remarquables. Ils sont sans titre, et parfois difficiles à situer géographiquement. Comme cette route bordée d'une infranchissable barrière de thuyas qui s'enfonce dans le flou et le lointain. La scène, qu'on dirait sortie d'un film, a les pieds dans la réalité et s'échappe pourtant dans la fiction.

"The Vanishing", de Serge Leblon. La B.A.N.K. 42, rue Volta, Paris-3e. Mo Arts-et-métiers. Tél. : 01-42-72-06-90. Jusqu'au 20 octobre. Du lundi au samedi de 11 heures à 19 heures.

The blurs dreamers of Serge Leblon
THE WORLD | 21.09.07 | Updated • 19h17 21.09.07 | 19h17

E Belgian Serge Leblon made career in the fashion. Of this universe, it kept a taste for the vestimentary colors sharp and details. And perhaps also this strange fascination as much as entêtée for female chevelures, their textures and their infinite fair ranges, brown the, russet-red one.Gallery B.A.N.K., in Paris, the photographer exposes a series to the accents all baudelairiens: portraits where the person, catch of back, are erased behind the undulating mass of her hair. But it would be illusory to see a substitute with the face there: this curtain alluring itself is concealed, by a play of blur which maintains remote the spectator.
Without data-processing handling, just while exploiting the development at the time of the catch of sight, the photographer plunges all his images, portraits, scenes of street or landscapes, in a thick blur which confers an imperceptible and unreal tonality to them. The eye pains, seeks in vain where to fix itself.
Whereas the central character loses himself in a fog dreamer, it is rather a detail or a bottom a priori without interest which remains Net: the hand of a girl tightened on a document or the cankered and peeled wall in front of which passes a woman distinguished - but fuzzy. The hot colors, the vague reasons, almost make resemble these photographs Polaroid... as if one dealt with strong and luminous memories here, but distorted by time and nostalgia.
Serge Leblon gives to see some tempting portraits of celebrities - the actresses Charlotte Gainsbourg and Isabelle Huppert are less icons glamour than hearts melancholic persons, the hair with the wind, lost in the dream of another.
But these are especially the landscapes which are remarkable. They are without title, and sometimes difficult to locate geographically. As this road bordered of an insuperable barrier of thujas which is inserted in the blur and the distance. The scene, which one would say left a film, has the feet in reality and however escapes in the fiction.

Serge was the principal photographer for the artwork for Lily Allen's new album It's Not Me, It's You and the later single covers. Given the album cover compared to some other pictures from the shoot I'm VERY disappointed that the cover looks as ordinary as it does.

Outtakes:







Does anyone know where Serge's main portfolio website is now? He does not seem to be with Bird Productions anymore as far as I can see.
