For L’Habit fait Le Moine, French photographer Charles-Henry Bédué infiltrates some of the most exclusive fashion shows and brand events in China and Paris. Making his living as an event photographer, the artist explains that he initially felt alienated amidst the hoards of glitterati. The only remedy for his discomfort was to push the crowded scenes further into the realm of abstraction, capturing alluring glimpses of color and form caught within the sea of high fashion glamour.
For Austin-based photographer Tracy Morford, fashion is a means of exploring personal themes as well as telling universal stories. Since growing up in the wooded landscape of Central New York, the artist has felt a profound connection with nature, one which she returns to by capturing solitary women as they gallop through verdant pastures or dip their toes in passing streams.
