Many of fashion’s most prolific photographers turn out work that spans a spectrum of styles – all depending on what the job is and what’s required of them at the time. That shows versatility and a particular type of skill. On the other end of the scale are those who develop trademarks, that nudge towards the label of auteurs or carve out a distinct style that’s instantly recognisable as their own.
Remi Rebillard tends towards the latter category. His latest shoot, “Les Soeurs” (The Sisters) cements his trademark shots: photos taken through glass, listless ragdoll poses, and the inclusion of scenes devoid of any models at all. Remi’s models here are young (the youngest, Eva, just 10 years old): but they’re more like actresses in a series of cinematic stills than ‘underage’ models. They’re sisters who seem abandoned by the adult world, perhaps forced to grow up too quickly.
Styled by Lawnette Lucille and with hair and makeup by Davide Calcinai, you can view the full shoot by Remi Rebillard (remirebillard.com) at the gallery.
