From Russia with winter love

With a lavish taste pointed almost exclusively towards grandeur and an immaculate styling that might appear eccentric for an outsider, Russia has plenty to offer in terms of imaginative fashion. Playing upon heritage and highlighting the Russian idea of luxury, Nicolas Guerin‘s Russian Dancing photo shoot feels just like an open door, inviting you to peek into the fascinating universe of a Balkan palace during…

Exploring love through colour

Seeing how over time love has been given many and very distinct interpretations, it’s no wonder that now we can almost catch sight of the perfect picture painted by a burning passion, a deep melancholy or a remediless romance. Gifting love with a series of timeless portraits that are built upon a complete display of emotions, photographer Nicolas Guerin chose color to evoke the oldest…

Lust is a drug, and the boy is addicted: She Put A Spell On Me

Love may be a drug, but it’s lust that’s truly, dangerously addictive. In Nicolas Guerin‘s latest shoot for Fiasco, it’s the power of a woman over a man that becomes a spell, rendering him incapable of thinking of anything but her. Woman here is powerful and empowered, an enchantress using her wiles to take what she wants. But what of the point of view of…

Codie Young is the rope-bound secretary

Fifty Shades of Grey may have bolstered hardware store sales of rope, but this shoot from Schön! Magazine‘s 19th issue hints at the 2002 film starring Maggie Gyllenhaal: both take the title Secretary. Codie Young stars as the girl being dominated in photographer Billy Nava’s rope-filled fantasy. But unlike other shoots we’ve seen that dabble in the arts of Japanese Shibari (Lara Stone for Visionaire…

Drama, personality, androgyny: Andrej Pejic

In shooting Andrej Pejic, Nicolas Guerin brings out one all-important thing; the thing most key to the model’s ongoing success. Well ok – two things, the first and most obvious being Pejic’s famously androgynous form of beauty. The second is Pejic’s ability to do drama but in such a way that never feels like he’s taking himself too seriously. From Pejic’s numerous interviews with magazines…

Bondage, the Japanese way

Japanese Bondage is an aesthetic art. Beyond its sexual connotations there’s a beauty in the symmetry of the knot-tying, the intricate patterns of the ropes, in the positions of the one being bound. It’s no wonder this art, known as Kinbaku or Shibari, has become a favourite for photographers looking to tap into something both erotic and visually beautiful. A match made in heaven, this…

Obscure objects of desire

Amped up levels of sensuality, raw displays of lust, and the binding ropes of bondage make this shoot by Nicolas Guerin more about the mood and less about the lingerie featured within it – luxurious as the pieces by the likes of La Perla and Agent Provocateur may be. It’s titled Cet Obscur Objet Du Desir and, like the 1977 film of the same name,…

Falling from grace

There’s a mildly dizzying physical sensation that accompanies a viewing of Nicolas Guerin’s shoot Fallen Angels. The fall is turned into a literal one by the downward views favoured by Guerin’s lens. But like any angel that’s fallen from grace there’s also a suggestion of greed or over-indulgence, of opulence and corruption – albeit a beautiful and alluring one. Marz Atashi’s styling leans towards rich,…

The fire of youth

It’s about rebellion, passion, lust and immaturity. Those few years of our lives where ignorance and inimitability are bigger trends than what animal prints could ever be. Proudly flagging the tag line of ‘youth’, Fiasco magazine explores this stage of life in its 15th issue with portrait photographer Nicolas Guerin. Just as the lack of discipline is supplanted with enormous fervour, everything you’d expect from…

An interview with Yohji Yamamoto

Of woman, Yohji Yamamoto says that “the more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence.” Not only a poetic sentiment, but a unique one: unlike the majority of designers who do womenswear, Yamamoto believes in using clothing to hide a woman’s body. To “protect” her sexuality. His view of seduction via androgyny is certainly expressed…
