Sensuality and solitude

Vivienne Mok‘s work is always pretty, always feminine; filled as they are with those objects of girlish fancy like tulle and chiffon, lace and roses. This is where it crosses over into the sensual, the sheer fabric exposing bare skin, the natural beauty of bed hair and no makeup.

The light gets in

There is a crack in everything / That’s how the light gets in. In a literal sense, Vivienne Mok lets the light into everything. Nothing is perfect, but when the light shines through it, it’s certainly more beautiful. Skylights pour rays of sun into the space of grand old rooms. Gauzy chiffon and lace let light in through every porous inch, creating silhouettes of human…

Sensual innocence & bridal whites in Bambi

Vivienne Mok‘s butter-soft aesthetic and bridal whites are two things that go perfectly hand in hand. As with all of Mok’s work, though, this isn’t the Bride in all her pampered, glossy glory. She’s enveloped in a dreamy haze of light, and as the shoot wears on her high necks and long trains shorten, her layers of lace are peeled away, her tightly braided hair…

Charlotte, way back when

Speaking of long-lost shoots, a la Hannah Glasby by Antony Nobilo and Miranda Kerr by Laurent Darmon… here’s one from the (figurative) dusty shoebox of Dennis Veldman. Veldman took the shots of model Charlotte in the earlier days of her modelling career. Eva Koegenboeg styled the shoot with a mix of vintage and modern pieces – a disco-ball silver skirt and sheer blouse, a flapper-esque…

Warmth and sensuality

I can’t count the number of times I’ve used the word ‘auteur’ with reference to Vivienne Mok; and it still holds true with each shoot of hers we encounter. The fact is that Mok’s shoots, in all their thematic and aesthetic cohesion, tend to fall into two categories: the soft, sweet, and innocent, or the sensual and deeply erotic. But for Mok the line between…

Nea: fairytale beauty

When you’re a little girl, no dream is unachievable, everyone can be a princess and it only takes a little bit of glitter to make you smile. Much the same can be said when looking upon Vivienne Mok’s work; her multitalented self always brings dreamy, fairy tale-like photoshoots to reality. For instance, her spread in the 3rd issue of Dew Magazine features the model Nea;…

An auteur’s vision of softness

A unity of vision. A distinctive style, recurrent aesthetic, returning themes. If the word auteur can apply equally to photographers as to filmmakers, Vivienne Mok would hold the title. Shooting up-and-coming model Gorana for Fashionising.com, Mok brings her remarkable soft and sensual style of photography back again in a daydream of hazy light, silk and sunday pleats. As is often the case with Mok’s shoots,…

Sensuality vs innocence

Last we interviewed Vivienne Mok she told us she would describer her work as ‘sensual’, not necessarily ‘erotic’. Not that she has anything against the latter term – it’s just not a conscious effort to create something that fits within it. Whether or not this series for LoveSexDance magazine could be boxed up and shipped off with that label is a subjective question, but one…

Weekend distraction: Monika Borowska

The never-ending stream of softly beautiful imagery that is the work of Vivienne Mok continues. Now model Monika Borowska poses in two ongoing and closely interrelated trends of the season: sheer fabric and lace. Taken away from all other influences and transported into the Vivienne Mok fairytale universe, they’re two trends proven to work in the soft and sensual style she reliably conveys.

Exclusive: Tales of forgotten places

Vivienne Mok believes that to be a great photographer, one must have a strong vision. It’s certainly a characteristic she not only aspires to but one she achieves with rhythmic regularity. Her shoots are the kind that seem to create their own worlds. They’re dream-like, almost always a unified vision of beauty and softness. At times they capture something sensual, erotic even – though when…
