    makes you realize how rare it is for a photographer to have a unique concept for an editorial these days….

    I disagree with the first comment. The location is somewhat similar but once you get in the specifics (styling, cropping, angles, etc.) they are two very different shoots.

    Love the colors, Malgosia looks amazing!

    • tina.l

      i think it smacks of inez and vinoodh, YSL and vogue china….

      I agree. The shoots are both sunny, but otherwise very different.

    I WISH SHE’D CLOSE HER MOUTH
    IF SHE DID THIS EDITORIAL WOULD BE PERFECT

  • Citogene

    MOTHER NATURE IS CALLING! I think the series are beautifully photographed, but styling wise…still beautiful but inconsistent…

    As for YSL…Helmut Newton did it before I&V and I’m sure someone did it before him. As the saying goes, “it’s all been done before”. Nothing is 100% original.

    • tina.l

      true but if you are going to copy something then make it amazing, this feels like there is nothing behind it conceptually, styling and photographically it misses any point, i dont think each individual picture is very strong, i guess you can see the clothes, thats the point?

      • Tanya

        (i guess you can see the clothes, thats the point?)

        That’s the ENTIRE point of fashion photography. At the end of the day, fashion is a business just like any other. The goal of an editorial/campaign is to sell the clothes. You are supposed to look at editorials and say, “I want that dress”. Looking at these images, the clothes are the focus of every shot.

        You are perfectly free to your opinion as photography is a subjective matter, but to say a story isn’t good because it shows the clothes is missing the entire point of fashion photography.

          the entire point of editorials is to inspire us with beautiful images, some of these are that, most are not… i think you missed the point of my comment, we don’t need a lesson in why fashion magazines exist, thats obvious, i said it missed any point apart from seeing the clothes, if an editorial is only about the clothes then lets see everything against a white studio and rejoice in the fact that “its all been done before” so why bother trying to do anything really well, how bleak.

          helmut newton did what before I&V? stood someone in front of a cactus? helmut newton was brilliant imagine he decided to only reference previous photographers over and over, i think I&V are great too and most of the time greg kadel takes beautiful pictures… not saying these arent but it is not good because there is clothing in it…

          • Tanya

            Your response makes no sense when looking at your original comment.

            (i think it smacks of inez and vinoodh, YSL and vogue china…)

            First you compare Kadel’s work to I&V and then when I point out that Newton did it before I&V, you say it’s not original to take pictures in a desert setting. Make up your mind. When I compared I&V to Newton, it was very specific things not just the setting that’s similar.

            And now you put words in my mouth. Where did I say that no one should try to take good photos? My point is that with any medium such as photography you are always reworking and recreating old concepts. So I found it ridiculous that you and the first commenter were acting like I&V were the first to do a shoot such as this. Brush up on your knowledge of fashion photography before being so quick to call out “copying”.

            I’m done with this discussion. Let’s just agree to disagree lol.

      in reply to your last comment at the bottom of this “discussion” i hazard a guess that i am way older and have a far more extensive knowledge of fashion photography and the field in general…( might not be the case but) you defending such a mediocre editorial is case in point.

      final words from me to you, dont give up on new things being created……it can happen, i actually see new things on this site all the time, to quote you directly so that i am not putting words in your mouth

      “reworking and recreating old concepts”

      there is the possibility that new ideas might happen…. i really hope they do.

      once again to clarify most of the time i like greg kadels work…. 99% of my problem with this editorial is the styling!
