A thought on photography/ LFW SS13

I like these slightly obscure photographs from fashion week (above and post below). By slightly obscure I mean a photo that is not a posed, outfit shot. I mean a photo that feels almost unintentional, capturing a moment that almost was not meant to be captured. Here photography demonstrates its brilliance as documentation. Through the act of photographing, this moment can be presented side by side with another, born-to-be Kodak moment, in exactly the same size, giving them equal importance in demanding the viewer's attention. What might have passed as an unmarked, unnoticed moment in time through photography is forever immortalised.

Stolen moment/ LFW SS13

In between the snapping and posing, this happened. The tilt of her wide-rimmed hat reminds me of an old Irving Penn photo.

This is what I wore/ LFW FW13

For only two hours on the only day I attended London fashion week FW13, this is what I wore. As immortalised by Anne Bernecker.

Dress by Acne, shirt by Muji, blazer by Zara, camera by Yashica.

Memories of days gone by/ LFW SS13

Now that my camera has taken a hike for good, I'm left with the only option of endlessly rehashing my old photos for some blog content. While I eventually get around to processing the film I shot on for the London fashion week that's just gone by, I've dug up from the deep recesses of my hard drive photos I took at the one before (Spring/Summer 2013) that I never even bothered posting.
