Fashion Photography | Nominee
Stuttgart / DE http://peterfranck.de/
In the here shown »fashion« shots neither the model nor the shown piece of clothing plays a special role. Some pictures are even completely without articles. The pictures should much more transport a feeling, a story which cumulates in the question of what that’s all about and who stands behind the shown picture.
Just as the models hide, the promotional purpose hides. Clothes and body are cut, the background merges with the foreground. Therein lies, so as in the narrative and humorous character, the tenor of the work. Elements from comics, films, art history and everyday life situations collide. Where just a real woman seemed to lay, the ground turns to be the pure color space, the girl under the table is reminiscent of Botticellis Venus, Batmans bride, Tattoos look like clothes and a dress becomes an ornamental pattern. Tables change into a painting surface. Humor plays a big role, humor and the freedom to tell absurd stories.
