Generally speaking contemporary fashion photography does not excite me as much, there are exceptions of course... Something to do with the invention of the digital camera I expect, it leaves me cold.
There is a lack of gritty, experimental and emotional qualities that are so deeply embedded in analog photography. I don't imagine, that the likes of Deborah Turberville, Sarah Moon, Paolo Roversi have fully embraced digital. Then again I could be wrong.
In any case I have recently discovered Roger Deckker, the image above really reminds me of Sam Haskins' November Girl. I like the variations and the way he pushes the medium. One image in particular, which I hope to post soon could easily be confused with a shot of Nico.
'In 1967 Nico and I hung out at John and Tom Law's home above the Sunset Strip where she visited and we did a shoot. She tried on a dress I had made to wear during my pregnancy with Pilar, our first child. Nico started dancing around the back yard twirling and pirouetting and having a wonderful time. A very special moment in all my years of photography. Nico was an amazing woman.'
