The medium of film has always inspired me to appreciate the past. I find that I always want to shoot something authentically vintage or older in nature. For my final project, I created timeless, yet vintage editorial fashion photographs inspired by the work of Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton and Patrick Demarchelier. The series portrays images of a young woman doing classic poses in long gowns with mesh headpieces and bold makeup. I wanted the images to be darker to give them a bit of an edge. Overall, my work can be described as vintage fashion from the 1920’s/1930’s with an edgier feel.
