Photography works in the most magical ways. It all lies in the power of the click that lasts no more than a few microseconds, but it’s a real deal breaker. From the contouring light on the face to the delusional sparkle on a dress, the lens is powerful enough to do anything. Or make anything look like what it’s not.
Photographer Akiss Paraskevopoulos looks at his subject matter in a new light, also with a very literal twist. As seen in this editorial, instead of taking the universally acceptable approach of making the clothes and model work for the lens, he favours the contrary. The nostalgic lighting of each shot is supported with hazy pastel undertones defining his working aesthetic. The weight rests with the mood of the shots and clothes become secondary, still making them visually pleasing.
A photographer’s subtle tackling with their subject is what makes an editorial stand out. And this particular one by Akiss is leading the troop in the aforementioned category.
