Fashioning Photography

  • Jodi

    David May Jeffersonville, VT USA This is an excellent opportunity to see and be seen by others in this field. I'm looking forward to it! This was shot in the Burlington parking garage. Jodi was the type of Model who could where a rag and make it look fabulous. Shooting black clothing in a dark or heavily shadowed area doesn't always work, but the odds were in our favor that afternoon

  • Kalinda

    David Miller Chandler, AZ USA This was shot in Santa Monica using only the misty sunset and Kalinda's raggedy prom dress.

  • Excuse me

    Nika Belianina Toronto, ON Canada as long as my works will be signed that they belong to me, Nika Belianina Model: Faery Lepidoptera, Costume: Christabel Couture

  • Mia, NY studio Model

    David May Jeffersonville, VT USA This is an excellent opportunity to see and be seen by others in this field. I'm looking forward to it! Mia, was our "Muse" or House Model for several months while I was sharing a studio with my brother in Manhattan. I look back at those months as the most rewarding to the development of my style and work ethic.

  • When Pam met Charles

    David May Jeffersonville, VT USA This is an excellent opportunity to see and be seen by others in this field. I'm looking forward to it! While I was a staff photographer for a Burlington retailer I shot on the streets often. Pam who was a regular Model of mine, was unaware that Charles, a well known character of sorts, had found us. I think this was his way of saying hello.

  • Karin

    David May Jeffersonville, VT USA This is an excellent opportunity to see and be seen by others in this field. I'm looking forward to it! I was working with another Model that brought Karin as a guest. It didn't take long before I was calling her to work with me. At this time I stated transitioning from a retail/catalog style to a more editorial/lifestyle approach.

  • Sarah

    David May Jeffersonville, VT USA This is an excellent opportunity to see and be seen by others in this field. I'm looking forward to it! Over the past decade, the industry has changed dramatically. The advances in digital photography are astounding. I periodically shoot to test new equipment and try my hand at current trends. Every once in a while I'll find a Jem to photograph!

  • Desert Rest

    Carolyn Hampton Sherman Oaks, CA USA

  • Renaissance Doll

    Jericho Soh Singapore, Singapore A very Renaissance Oil painting feel was set to parody the Fine Artist's initial dislike of photography as an Arts Medium. This work combines the very commercialized aspect of Fashion Photography with the romance of Renaissance painting.

  • Vice of Time

    Jericho Soh Singapore, Singapore Challenging traditional concepts of Fashion Photography which is always still and clean, this piece of work puts emphasis on the beauty of aging and passing of time. Beauty they say is temporal and this is what makes it so desirable.

  • Mariner Inn #2

    Candace Moore Houston, TX USA From the series: "Mariner Inn", featuring clothing by Jordan Wiehle, hair and makeup artistry by Brittiny Shirley and model Stacey Pool Morse.

  • India Indian

  • 5 Train, Bronx to Harlem, NYC

    Nikki Johnson New York, NY USA I shot this portrait while on a train from the Bronx to Manhattan. I was attracted to his look as a handsome throwback to the Harlem Renaissance. His clothing echos a jazz age past while the fact that he is texting keeps things firmly in the present.

  • THE MAD HATTER one

  • Trapped Chair

    Jessica Tattory Missoula, MT USA Virgina Woolf once wrote, "Imaginatively she is of the highest importance; practically she is completely insignificant. She pervades poetry from cover to cover; she is all but insignificant."

  • Pandora's Box

    Joi Ong Rochester, NY USA This is work that I've made within the last couple of months. It's a break between fashion and odd stories that are tied in by the images.

  • Time Machine Escapades- 1980

    Emily Friedensohn Essex Junction, Vermont USA This is my sister. The two of us were born in the wrong decade.

  • Time Machine Escapades-1979

    Emily Friedensohn Essex Junction, Vermont USA Big Pimpin' Ramón, my new car. A 1979 Lincoln Continental equipped with an 8-track player and leather seating. The night I bought it, my brother and I ran to the outside garage and slipped in a Chuck Mangione 8-track. I have big plans for this car.

  • Child Savior

    Joi Ong Rochester, NY USA This is work that I've made within the last couple of months. It's a break between fashion and odd stories that are tied in by the images.

Where do art and fashion meet?  That’s the gray area we’re looking to showcase for “Fashioning Photography.”  Since the 1990’s, the two have benefited from constant cross-fertilization.  We are taking fashion photography very seriously as a result.

Is it the droves of visitors that appear in museums and galleries with the Fashion Photography exhibit? Is it the income available to Photographers who bend a little into the commercial realm? Is it our fascination for lifestyle imaging that has created the booming magazine culture and therefore elevated the fashion spread to be endlessly alluring to the artist?  There is so much diversity and energy in contemporary fashion photography that artists everywhere are turning to it as a subject matter; it’s an obsession and a compulsion.

Fashion changes its values constantly and the variety of the fashion photograph is proof.  Though “safe” images are preferred by most advertisers for magazine spots, there are no holds barred for the gallery setting.  Whether it’s for music videos, lookbooks, catalogues, advertising and catwalk photography, or the personal portfolio, fashion photography is everywhere.

The styles are seemingly infinite, ever-evolving, and constantly reinventing themselves:  staged tableaux (Steven Meisel), diarist approaches (Mario Sorrenti, Corinne Day), cinematic (Venetia Scott), critical and political (Nick Knight), high gloss and glamour (Karl Lagerfeld), iconographical (Craig McDean), shock (Clayton Cubitt), sexual (Steven Klein), psychological (Camille Vivier), surreal (Bela Borsodi), spectacle (Ellen Rogers), realism (Lina Scheynius) and the banal (Jonathan de Villiers).  What is your style?  We're looking forward to representing this great variety in "Fashioning Photography."

Photographer and Editor-in-Chief of FutureClaw Magazine, Bobby Mozumder will choose images for “Fashioning Photography” that represent the gamut of this pliable, influential, exciting field of art and commercial fashion photography.  Are you a part of the next wave?

Full Color Catalog now available at VioVio
All selected entries are included in a full color exhibit catalog. Juror's Choice receives a 20x35" vinyl exhibit banner featuring their image. We offer free matting and framing of accepted entries for the duration of each of our exhibition, subject to standard sizes. Photographers set their own prices if they wish to sell their work and retain all rights to their photographs.

In Mozumder’s own words:  Photography largely speaks of a photographer's personal life.  Through their imagery, one can almost determine the lifestyle of a photographer.  Study enough photographers and a large enough sample of their photography, and you will find repeated patterns of association, ranging from their apparel selection, to music, to culinary taste, even a photographer's political inclinations.

Fashion photography is a subset of photography that speaks of personal style, and these photos present a leading edge style that inspire people to explore the boundaries of fashion.

Special Collection, FashioningTHE SPECIAL COLLECTION

an auxiliary collection to the "Fashioning Photography" exhibit

We did some something totally new for the "Fashioning Photography" exhibition.  We mounted what we called a “Special Collection” of images as a supplement to the regular exhibit. We chose 16 additional images to print and hang during the months.  Images were clipped to hangers which were hung from a clothing rack that drifted around the Gallery for the month.  These images were paramount to the ongoing discussion we instigated considering What is Fashion Photography?  What fabulous conversations we had surrounding some of the issues of this special genre of Fine Art and Commercial photography.  A few words heard during these discussions:  concept/metaphor, exploitation, body image, pop/mass culture, commodity, sexuality, etc.  What an opportunity it was.  MANY CONGRATULATIONS! to the Photographers whose work was chosen for this auxiliary collection:  (alphabetically) Andrea Bancone, Nika Belianina, Joseph M. Cousino, Jesse Fox, Reza Golchin, Nikki Johnson, Nick Kline, Nikolay Mikheev, Joi Ong, Len Speier, Krista Svalbona, Vera Varley. Your images were a hit – we’re honored to have had them on display.

Juror:  Bobby Mozumder

Your Juror for “Fashioning Photography” is Bobby Mozumder, both a Photographer, and Editor-in-Chief at FutureClaw Magazine, currently in its third year.  A Rochester Institute of Technology graduate, Mozumder now lives and works in Washington D.C..  His fashion photography ranges from high-end glamour to diaristic. Whether high-end studio or location, Mozumder’s images incorporate exquisite lighting, intimate camera angles, dynamic framing, graphic overlays, and an approach to color that ranges from monochromatic to high-key black and white.  Across the gamut, his imagery is consistently calculated.  Is it the influence of a background in computer architecture and engineering?  Personal work aside, we’re lucky to have his experience as Editor-in-Chief of FutureClaw Magazine extended to the jurying of “Fashioning Photography.” Mozumder is entrenched in the art, culture, and fashion of our time, engaging himself in Fashion Photography’s latest trends as he builds the FutureClaw brand as one of today’s most beautiful boutique magazines.

In Mozumder’s own words:  Photography largely speaks of a photographer's personal life.  Through their imagery, one can almost determine the lifestyle of a photographer.  Study enough photographers and a large enough sample of their photography, and you will find repeated patterns of association, ranging from their apparel selection, to music, to culinary taste, even a photographer's political inclinations.
