It’s been a long time since I made a post about an emerging, nay fantastic, photographer on TFM. This was mainly because I changed the content flow of the blog a little but also because I couldn’t seem to discover anyone who is offering a new breath of creative air, until Pauline Suzor. After a serious amount of online stalking (I checked the author of a streetstyle photo I loved and saw it was Pauline, found out about her tumblr etc etc) I discovered this 21 year old gem based in Stockholm. With clients like ACNE Studios, Universal Studios and Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Stockholm; she is slowly becoming a household name for candidly whimsical editorial & event photography, sometimes enriched with her witty counter lines and playful illustrations.
Long live the quality high street, all hail minimalism, god save H&M and may the shopaholic intuitions be with us!
It’s been a long time since I’ve touched my whimsical side; dealing with wedding details made me so much “fluff and glitter” oriented that all I ever searched for was center pieces or head dresses. That was until I stumbled upon Li Hui‘s work; a self taught photographer who uses natural elements and efects such as double exposure and light leaks to express people and nature from her point of view. The fact that you never see any faces is because she thinks people change their faces too fast in the real world and body language is the only way she can know about what’s going on inside of them. An odd and non-profitable thought for someone who works in fashion (that’s me, not her; she’s not a fashion photographer), but I’m in love with the angle and the depth of the photos. I told you at the beginning of the post that I was going weird today.
