Bringing fetish to light

Fetish-themed shoots are frequently sexy, but less often are they polished and elegant. Even the countless nods to the late Helmut Newton are regularly enacted in a raw or shadowy way. Andrea Klarin brings us one of those dizzyingly captivating exceptions: fetishist standards of latex and leather, nudity and beautiful anonymity, set against open spaces and luminous, light-filled windows.

According to a biography of the Belgradian photographer on EW-Agency’s website, Klarin sees beauty as “something that can come in any form or shape and provokes a reaction, which for him is the fun element as not everyone will react in the same way.” If one shot of the series provokes a reaction best, it’s the shot of a model on a chair, back arched, legs scissored geometrically, feet tip-toed in impossibly high ballerina fetish heels; a gold embellished blouse providing a soft and theatrical contrast to the PVC shine of the boots.

There’s an elegance to the meticulous pose. And there’s something redeeming about the light streaming in through the windows.

Of course Klarin is right; not everyone will react the same way. Regardless of what reaction the subject matter provokes, though, it’s hard to argue against the beauty of Klarin’s photography work.

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.
