Nude for you: a portrait

What does it take to make a beautiful nude portrait? It’s all about form; about the lines of the body and the shadows as they dance along the outlines of each bodypart. It comes down to lighting, and pose, and composition. Timmothy Lee‘s nude portrait of Tyna Kottova succeeds on all those levels, a softly black and white photo series that focuses on the body…

Creative projections

One of my most memorable Las Vegas experiences was going to see Crazy Horse at the MGM Grand (on a side note, despite its lack of authenticity, I actually found the Vegas show to beat Paris’ hands down; such is the production value of Vegas shows). As the curtains raised and a rank-and-file lineup of perfect topless bodies stood marching on the spot in little…

Indulging in the outtakes

I’m always saddening that some of the art I’m likely to appreciate never sees the light of day. It’s for that reason that I tend to hunt down the “director’s cuts” and deleted scenes that have ended up missing from the cinematic experiences I most enjoyed. And it’s for the same reason that the biggest impression left on me by The September Issue was that…

The cold Venus: Irina Funtikova

It’s not the first time that photographer Timmothy Lee has provided us an interpretation of Venus de Milo. Last time, however, Lee’s work with model Irina Funtikova was golden, soft and often sensual. Lee’s return to the photo shoot, by way of these set of outtake pictures, are quite different. Dark, almost cold, and heavily angled, these outtakes lack none of the quality of the…

Two to tango

Photographer Timmothy Lee often cites music as his inspiration. This time it’s a sensual tango, Gotan Project’s Santa Maria, along with the words of Cacho Dante: to dance tango, you must listen to the heart of the woman.

A Black Swan

Things don’t always go to plan. This we know. Sometimes the result is misfortune. Sometimes things turn out better than we’d plan. And at other times the result is something we didn’t have in mind at all to begin with but potentially no less satisfying. Such is the story of photographer Timmothy Lee‘s take on Black Swan. But not the cinematic masterpiece from Darren Aronofsky…

A golden goddess

The latest work from Timmothy Lee takes the name Venus de Milo; but far from being cold and statuesque Irina Funtikova is a Goddess of shimmering gold. Joelle Litt‘s styling is a cohesive venture into all things gilded, with everything from sequinned harem pants to mermaid-like paillette dresses.

The black rose

We’ve had many a discussion in our office about the role of nudity in fashion, none have ever agreed with some of the correspondance we receive stating that it has no place (such correspondence is never that nicely put mind you, it’s normally a rant about how disgusting nudity is). It’s an issue that Fashionising.com contributor, Timmothy Lee, has opted to tackle in his latest…

Dark imagination

Taking 2010′s concept de jour, 3D, and inspiration from Albert Einstein’s famous words of wisdom, that “imagination is everything“, has resulted in a unique and dark twist on the 3D medium that is Timmothy Lee‘s Dark Matter photo shoot. As with the last pictorial he was kind enough to supply for fashionisers’ viewing pleasure, the subject of Timmothy’s lens is again Canadian model Irina Funtikova.…

I-R-I-N-A

“I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment. They become in a sense… symbolic of themselves. I often feel that people come to me to be photographed as they would go to a doctor or a fortune teller – to find out how they are.” – Richard Avedon With Avedon’s quote in mind, photographer Timmothy Lee set about shooting…
