Famous Movies through Fashion by Candice Milon

5-1

Perhaps the way French photographer Candice Milon captured iconic movie costumes could be a neat way to photograph your own wardrobe. Which shirt matches with which pants?
But back to the series by Candice Milon. She shows us that the clothes worn by movie actors do play an important role in how we remember those movies. It’s a very nice fashion catalog. Or a catalog for potential movie-themed-party-costumes. But for now it’s a nice way for you to guess the characters’ names and movie titles of each photo.

Food & Drinks…and String by Kyle Dreier

Do you ever wonder what type of drink suits best with the meal you’re about to eat? Well food photographer Kyle Dreier made this easy for you with his series Food & Drinks…and String. Or as some have called it the “Food bondage series”. In this personal project Kyle explorers the stereotypical food pairings. And he does so in a very delicious way. I wonder how long Kyle will go on with this project. Since there are countless possibilities to combine, enjoy and photograph.

Hangers

Carefully Composed Works of Art

Photography has evolved through out the years and is getting more and more respected as an art form. Perhaps Man Ray really kicked off the conceptual kind of usage of the camera.

Still-life photographer Maurice Scheltens and visual artist Liesbeth Abbenes are artists, like Man Ray, that have a truly conceptual approach to photography. The photos they compose are created by looking at shape and color. The overall composition is the important factor in their creations. Some of their work even reminds me of paintings by Mark Rothko.

Scheltens & Abbenes take ordinary objects like hangers or chairs and manage to place them in such a way that their shapes or colors brings about something truly abstract. They make us look at the objects not for what they are but for what they can be. Shape over function. It makes us look differently towards any given object. Wonderful photographs that will look beautifully on any living room wall.
