sigh……this documentary is beyond….well….anything. it is so fascinating & magical & REAL. it makes me want to be a part of this industry….especially in the photography sense. i got to see mario testino & david sims work their magic. so inspiring. thank you courtney watson.
anna wintour is a genius. & the people she gets to encounter & work with…& not to mention, she is so classic & timless. i mean, her look literally hasn’t changed since 1990.
& the vogue stylist….grace coddington is so inspiring. here she is featured in the vogue age issue.
she used to be a model, but now she styles the major shoots….she is the mind behind the couture editorial shoots & has such an incredible eye. this movie features the 2007 september issue & in an interview she is talking about how she wishes images could be softer and she is encouraging the photographers to allow for blurry images & movement instead of just trying to get the sharpest thing possible. i mean…she is 2 years ahead of the time…ALWAYS.
people may find fashion trivial or amusing or a waste of time & money….but honestly, it is ART. it is inspiring & beautiful & without it, photography would be lacking a major creative element that sometimes makes the shot.
