I'm trying not to geek out too terribly over the fact that Annie Liebovitz is shooting in the studio next to me and I just saw her in the hall (!!!). Clearly, I'm a huge fan of hers, have been for a while, and think her work is absolutely phenomenal - but I absolutely have no nerve and could never even dream of approaching her.
It got me thinking, though, that I don't recall featuring any photography on this blog, and if I have it must have been a while - and then I remembered I've had Suzanne Clements' work on bookmark for a while now, so it's as good of a time as any to actually post it! "Through the Viewfinder" photography is always a lot of fun to do, though not many people can use the technique to their full advantage. I think Suzanne does, though, making her floral photography highly romanticized in their colors and sentimental by strategically using dusk specks. The combination of high contrast and the tactile in the two shots above give a very vintage feel to them while also appealing to a graphic, modern sensibility. Hope you love the work like I do!
