Obscured

What you can’t see in Dennis Veldman‘s latest work, Black, is just as important as what you can.

The framing of each shot is intensely intimate as if the lens of the camera wants to stare right into each model’s soul. But while their faces are obscured by strands of hair, like curtains to hide behind, none of the models bows to the camera’s close watch. Instead they stare right back.

Veldmann deliberately wanted to create something “darker”, almost eerie, with the intensely shadowy and close-up shots. You can view the full shoot at the gallery above.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
