    Nice model. Nice photos. But what? It doesn't say anything. It's just more studio work to add to the already over-saturated vault of fashion imagery.

    • thanks for saying what I'm always thinking.
      What I'm wondering is- where do we go from here?
      I seem to always come back to fashion imagery and yet be utterly bored by the majority of it.
      There is a limit to what you can do with a girl and some clothes and the novelty has definitely worn off.
      What happens next?

      • Hey Maya,

        It's about money mainly. The days of true editorial weren't governed by current economic times. The mags are interested less in ideas, and more in displaying clothes the way they are to keep their advertisers happy, or to attract new ones. It's gone away from art and creativity and more about a way to make money to keep an established company afloat. Sadly. It's why the internet is really getting interesting, and while I think we're in a transition period while the internet gains credibility, I think the future of highly creative, inspiring and visionary work is going to published on the internet, until the value of it is rediscovered…and we'll all make millions :)

        As for these shots, I think they're quite nice. Bit boring, yes. It just depends on what you're looking for, but for me I see the beauty of the model here which is really pleasing. Simple things in life are often the best apparently!
