Come into the Castle, Maud

Showcasing couture gowns against a featureless white backdrop would be unfair. These are gowns that deserve a surrounding as lavish as their hand-stitched details and delicate fabrics – a backdrop like the Palace Hotel Shangri-La in Paris, perhaps. That’s where Benjamin Kanarek shot his latest haute couture editorial for the November 2012 issue of Harper’s BAZAAR en Español. Maud Welzen is prim and polished in…

An interview with Skyfall Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe: weekend watch

“Bérénice has an incredibly witty sense of humor,” says photographer Benjamin Kanarek after spending a day getting to know cinema’s latest Bond Girl. After shooting Bérénice for Harper’s Bazaar, Kanarek and video director Frédérique Renaut decided a candid interview was also in order. In the video Bérénice shares details of how she was cast for SKYFALL, her childhood memories, and what she feels about Bond…

Bond Girl Berenice Marlohe: from Skyfall to Harper’s Bazaar

The title of ‘Bond Girl’ isn’t just a one-film thing; it’s like a lifetime badge of honor. A certification that a woman has a certain something. And the latest to earn that badge? French actress Bérénice Marlohe, who stars as the seductive Sévérine in the new film SKYFALL. In the cover shoot for Harper’s BAZAAR en Español, November 2012, Benjamin Kanarek captures both the natural…

Couture & a Canadian in Paris

Couture gowns never look quite as at home as they do against the backdrops of Paris. They have an affinity: the appliqué flowers blooming across skirts in deliberate rows, like the formal gardens of the Tuileries; the ornate gold lace like palace interiors; and the full, billowing silhouettes like grand architectural domes. But as much as Benjamin Kanarek’s (benjaminkanarekblog.com) latest shoot brings couture fashion to…

Modern white featuring Du Juan

Against a stormy backdrop and battling fierce winds, Du Juan stands in outfits of all white – making it all the more obvious just how suitable and stylish white can be for winter. Photographed by Benjamin Kanarek for the September 2012 issue of Vogue China, the shoot showcases the season’s range of textures and shapes that make the colour white desirable. Stylist Julie Ragolia mixes…

Portrait of a lady: Lydia Hearst

It starts with heiress Lydia Hearst, hands grasping tiny hips, in Louis Vuitton’s ladylike ensemble of pastel lace and peachy statement collar. From there Benjamin Kanarek‘s shoot moves through a series of cinematic frames, each styled with a ladylike softness that’s nepenthe to any memory of the model having ever posed with skin-baring abandon in front of Terry Richardson’s lens. This is, unequivocally, Lydia the…

Woman on top

The bombshell ‘60s may have returned in a flurry of lace dresses, cat eye glasses, and hourglass-inducing pencil skirts – but in this modern era, woman’s role in the office is vastly different to what it was back then. Benjamin Kanarek’s latest shoot for Harper’s Bazaar en Espanol & Mexico is like Mad Men in reverse: the female is the dominant player in this corporate…

Couture on the cutting room floor

What causes some images – some of the most breathtaking, captivating images – to get left behind on the cutting room floor? As lamented by Daniel in the past, print magazines have a physical limitation that the digital world does not, one that often results in ‘wasted art’ never to be appreciated by anyone but the artist. Today we get another sideways glimpse into the…

Amber Anderson goes mod

You may recall just a few days ago we featured a teaser of the adorable singer/model/actress Amber Anderson posing for the lens of Benjamin Kanarek. Now, in a pop of bright colours and Peggy Moffitt-inspired hair, Amber’s full shoot comes to our screens and comes to life. This type of modern update on swinging 60s dressing is something we’ll be seeing much more of –…

Amber Anderson behind-the-scenes (video)

Update: as promised, you can now view the full behind the scenes video after the jump. I’m watching Amber Anderson in this behind-the-scenes video by Benjamin Kanarek, and wondering how I’ve never fallen in love with her before. Perhaps its because she’s one of those over-achievers who sings, models and acts (look out for her in the cast of Natalie Portman’s new flick, Your Highness)…
