Kate Moss by Terry Richardson for Harper’s Bazaar

With a little less hype and not a poster in sight Terry Richardson gets behind the lense to shoot Kate Moss again, this time for the June/July issue of Harper’s Bazaar. Taking the shoot outside, rather than in his signature studio, Miss Moss is looking belting again!

Rihanna recently passed by the studio of Terry Richardson. The famed New York photographer and ‘Daddy Hype’ of course took the chance to shoot a nice impromptu spread of the singer, who in return did some sexy poses for him. All in all a nice series of images that is certainly worth checking out first thing on a morning..

i-D Magazine: Kate Moss for Supreme

The Kate Moss for Supreme campaign was and still is one of the most successful streetwear campaigns of all time – surely cementing the New York brand’s legacy for years to come. Photographed by Alasdair McLellan as part of i-D Magazine’s “Royalty” Issue, the holdover shot of Moss is included in the editorial as well as an interview with James Jebbia, founder and owner of Supreme. The issue can be purchased online for £9.00

Terry Richardson x Kate Moss AGAIN!

Sorry but I never get bored of either TR or KM! so once again supermodel Kate Moss got in front of the lens of Terry Richardson. Similar to her recent work with Supreme, the model is smoking a cigarette during her shoot with the New York photographer. There is just something about Kate Moss. All she needs is a cigarette and that paired with her look makes her more sexy than most others right from the start.

LOVE Magazine Lindsay Lohan by Terry Richardson

20120207-081753.jpg

I’m not afraid to admit it I am a fan of LiLo… For better or for worse, Lindsay Lohan has never been far from the spotlight. With seemingly more arrests and incarcerations than film roles, life for the troubled young Hollywood starlet has been anything less than tumultuous. But Lohan ended 2011 on a number of progressive career notes – first, for her admirable role in Robert Rodriguez’s film Machete, then shortly after, with her electrifying Marylyn Monroe-inspired photo spread for Playboy Magazine. Renowned American photographer Terry Richardson has expanded on Lohan’s striking resemblance to Monroe, photographing her for the UK’s LOVE Magazine. The spread finds the always-provacative Lohan in vintage lingerie, again channeling Marylyn herself in 21st century fashion. Lohan’s photo issue of “After Taste” in LOVE Magazine is available now

SlamxHype x Ben Benoliel Interview

Check out Slam x Hype’s interview with Mr Ben Benoliel

London based photographer Ben Benoliel’s solo exhibition, NEGATIVE ARCHIVE, kicks off this Thursday, 17th November at Clerkenwell’s J+A Cafe & Gallery. The LN-CC Photography Director will show his personal work for the first time in this context.

I caught up with Ben to talk Photography, his career and the show.

AB: Tell us what got you into photography?

BB: I didn’t start taking photos until I was 16. Until then I hadn’t really had the option. Out of school all I would do was play football and in school we only ever had the option of ‘Art & Design’, which was always my favourite subject (after PE!). I had always had an interest in imagery and fashion and was always artistic but was never great at drawing. When I went to college, Photography was an obvious option and I soon became extremely passionate about taking and developing images. I looked into photography degrees and 2 years later I started on the London College of Fashion’s BA Fashion Photography course.

AB: What was your first camera, if you remember?

BB: My first camera was a 35mm Pentax that came out of the college cupboard. I used to take it home and do location shoots with friends. Digital wasn’t so much of an option back then and there is nothing like using an analogue film camera. I don’t think the genre would have grabbed me quite as much if I hadn’t been shooting and developing film!

AB: What inspires you daily to get out and take photos?

BB: Its not so much I go out with ‘taking pictures’ in mind, I just love to take pictures so I do. With the digital era even if you don’t have a camera on your person you will always have one on your phone ! My iPhone is full of everyday images of things ranging from cars to brick walls ! I just got the iPhone 4s and the image quality of this is better than my first expensive digital camera !

AB: when it comes to creating imagery – what’s your goal?

BB: Obviously whilst working for clients the goal is to meet the brief but my genuine goal is to create images which I love and am happy to put out there. I would like to think that I had a style and that images i had taken were uniquely recognisable as mine.

AB: What do you prefer shooting and why, people, fashion, landscapes?

BB: People. Nothing gives me a buzz than shooting people. Personally I think a portrait always revels something about a person that even having a conversation doesn’t. It shows a side of a person only a photograph can.

AB: What are your thoughts over the new generation of photography quick access imagery?

BB: I hear a lot of photographers expressing negative thoughts about this I don’t hate it, I’m not angry about it but I do think it has effected the quality of photography as a medium overall. Having said that its great that more people can enjoy photography, why shouldn’t they ! As a professional photographer it sometimes makes things a lot more competitive but at the same time, a great image is a great image and that is what i strive to achieve.

AB: Thoughts about moving into moving image?

BB: If digital photography infuriates photographers I daren’t think about how the ‘5d revolution’ makes video makers feel ! Its great for us photographers to be able to capture movement and I’m certainly interested in exploring this in the future. Im not overly keen on how the aforementioned 5d has made almost 99% of video look and feel the same but that is just my personal preference.

AB: Digital or Film?

BB: Film, every time. Every image in the show has come from a beautiful negative.

Ursus Whrlis : The Art Of Cleaning Up

One for all you people with OCD out there…Organizational skills aren’t usually something you look for in an artist, but inUrsus Wehrli‘s case, they’re definitely something of value. Famous for his “Tidying Up Art” books, which deliver deconstructions of the works of Van Gogh, Botticelli, Pollock, and many other masters, the Swiss artist and comedian is pushing his visual manifesto for a more organized and categorized take on art.

His book, “The Art of Clean Up”, brings this concept a little closer to home, with Ursus sorting out things we encounter in everyday life—alphabet soup, a sandbox, a parking lot—according to color, size, and shape.  Available now
