Tie-up espadrilles, lace and tulle, flower garlands and crisp white knickerbocker-tap pants. That’s just to name a few of the things that find their way into this beautiful shoot by Henry Moshizi, which captures Spring so perfectly from start to end. Model Iza Olak makes me want to go bleach my eyebrows, pick daisies and frolic in the fields. Be back soon.
Fashion is circular. It is inspired, and it inspires. That’s true for every fashioniser, every designer, every photographer. And Akiss Paraskevopoulos is one such fashion photographer. When Love magazine released their much talked about third issue it was Akiss and model Taryn Andreatta who brought us an homage to the issue’s style (circular indeed given the Love shoots were inspired by Helmut Newton). Now Akiss draws inspiration from something else – the cult French film Emmanuelle.
It was the 1950’s; a time when tattoos were still a symbol of rebellion, music still crackled and flowed from the flashing lights of a jukebox, and cigarettes were mandatory – indoors or out. We may think of such things as mere cliches. Are the film depictions of greaser boys with rolled-up sleeves and tiny-waisted girls in circle skirts faithful representations of the day?
Looking at Bruce Davidson‘s Brooklyn Gang project (1959), the answer would be yes. The tattoos, the cigarettes, the boys’ rockabilly hair ; you might as well be looking at a film set from Rebel Without A Cause. Davidson’s photos are beautiful in their candor and compelling in their detail.
