Sometimes, we all come across fashion editorials that just scream to be shared. Yes they are that good ! Fashion Magazine Canada for their March 2013 issue called upon Jamie Nelson ( you can visit him here) He is very good actually ( we could not resist sharing his past work too at the bottom of theis post!)
But this time the vivid prints clash, as they did on the spring runways too. Shot on Anastasija Kondratjeva and styled by Zeina Esmail, we loved the work. Working with a flat pattern wall is difficult both for the photographer and the model I am sure. There are only so many poses and angles you can do. And that is why, beyond the styling and setup we found this one a sucess overall. We might confess that we are either stunned by eccentricity or the bare minimum, mediocre is hardly ever given a place in our heart. Does that work the same way with you?
Jamie Nelson's earlier work
So he shoots beautiful angles, his forte must be outdoors, and maybe even making the models and food look good together. We might think that his above editorial falls short, but then we explained the limits of a flat wall didn't we ! :)
Have a look !
