Jeanloup Sieff is one of my all time favorite photographers, as any reader of this blog will know. I have always loved this beautiful, tantalising image with Sieff’s consummate lighting and obsessional love of fingers.
In 1997 when I was President of D&AD I
had the great pleasure of putting together a series of President’s Lectures.
This gave me the opportunity of approaching some of my all time favorite
creative talents. Jean Loup Sieff was one such supreme talent. I have always
loved the beauty and delicacy of his photographs. The use of wide-angle lenses,
exquisitely soft, creamy lighting and wonderful compositions create images of
pure serenity, especially his nudes.
Torsi is a great example of his craft in which
the majority of the people photographed were not professional models. He used a
simple lighting set up and the minimum of props. He also had a passion for
hands and their arrangement…
London based photographer
Jillian Edelstein is embarking on a rather fun project to dovetail with the
introduction of the new Sony Ericsson Satio mobile. Sony have commissioned her
to use the Satio’s in- built camera to photograph eyes. But it's not the usual
run of celebrities that Edelstein is used to snapping…
No not them, as lovely as they are. This time it’s the likes of you
and me. She will be photographing 112 eyes in 12.1 hours at Sony Ericsson’s
London store. So if you would like your eye featured as part of this very
special project all you have to do is apply online here. The project will take
place the first week in December. Sony Ericsson will be streaming the results
live on their website. So if you are not lucky enough to be selected keep
looking in to see what Jillian will make of it. And to see more of her work
