So, what is Editorial Fashion? Apparently it is photography that tells a story. But is also something that plays with your mind a hell of a great deal. Some of it is outlandish and some of it could easily be called just insane. All I can say is that I am struggling to get my head around the current fashion trends as it is.
As I research into the past such as the 50s, 60s and 70s, it seems that editorial fashion was actually quite sensible. You had classic movie stars who showed such style and panache like Paul Newman and Sophia Loren, both shot exquisitely by Richard Avedon.
Now we have photographers who are really challenging the barriers of art and fashion by using human beings as illustrious canvases and fiddling with our very senses of what can be deemed normal. I have only just started this journey into an unknown world. It is not pretty landscapes, nor even pretty portraits. It is an eye opener for me. Wish me well on my travels!
