Steven Klein Studio

Great news! One of the most influential photographers Steven Klein has an updated site. Steven Klein has been producing so many memorable images either through editorial, advertising or film. Now there’s a chance for his many fans like me to check out his amazing works.

“Great fashion photography not only understands the clothes and makes them look beautiful and of-the-moment,” says Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, “but it also brings a twist that catches the eye and captures the imagination. In the case of Steven Klein, you give him a dress, and he will give you a girl in a dress with a robot in a garden. It’s clever, conceptual, and ultimately lyrical.”

Vogue Hommes Internation 06 Fall/Winter 2007-2008

I love the current issue of Vogue Hommes International Fall/Winter 2007-2008. Finding what Calvin Klein thought of Mark Walberg was interesting. There’s a beautiful photographs by Hedi Slimane and styled by Emmanuelle Alt of contemporary artists like Terence Koh (a.k.a. Asian Punk Boy), Ryan McGinley. There’s a fashion story by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinood Matadin starring uber hot model Andres. Of course there’s the very sexy editorial by Mario Testino and my all time favourite fashion editor Carine Roitfeld called “Fur Men”.

"Lord of The Ring"

In the latest issue also a very interesting interview of a beautiful young torero Jose Maria Manzanarez. It’s very captivating story, specially how Jose described his passion for the art and his injuries. The photos are by legendary photographer Peter Lindbergh.

Connex 24.7: Presents Scott Taylor

Edward of Connex 247 has a new interview with an up and coming male model from UK Scott Taylor.

“The top designer gets more attention because they put more effort into their clothes and the quality is high standard… There are images I’ve seen in models and photographers portfolios which I really feel the urge comment on, but words cannot describe what I always feel about an image. You just have to sit back and enjoy it.”
