This blog began in Spring 2009 as an investigation into the dialogue between fashion and art. I was interested in the way both mediums share a negotiation of form and color, presentation, interpretations and how they inform one another. In time, the emphasis shifted to fashion media, specifically editorials as a contemporary form of art work, a social storytelling in which cultural values are displayed and negotiated. In the past five years of this blog, social media has transformed how we receive visual information. This editorial above and below by Emma Summerton for W, March 2014, captures the selfie-involved cultural moment. This blog still provides a great resource of fashion photography with The History of Fashion Photography getting more visits than any other page. I am archiving this blog for the time being, with a new focus to social media. Continue following my aesthetic explorations, visit my site and follow me at Instagram.
