A photographer’s eye brilliantly captures an image that the naked eye cannot. Through the advent of digital photography and the evolution of the camera phone, everyone is now a photographer. And while many may lament the demise of the art of the professional photographer, I can’t complain about a world filled with striking images. And what I can do is celebrate the moments of beauty and light brilliantly portrayed in a photograph.
The ubiquity of street style photography is a phenomenon birthed by the instantaneous ability to take a picture at every moment. Inherent style to the average New Yorker, however, is nothing new. The sidewalk is our catwalk, documented as such as soon as the camera was invented.
Insider access to the elite often spurns the most captivating photographs. When a celebrity or socialite lets their guard down, the right photographer can capture a side often not shared with the public.
Fashion and art have long been provocative lovers. Lush, tantalizing imagery express the transformative quality of the world’s finest designers. Storied Italian brand Gucci is often at the leader of that dynamic intersection where fashion meets art, as evident in their latest campaign shot by Glen Luchford.
