    the black model looks like Buckwheat from the little rascals. the white models fit the conventional aesthetic for beauty. what gives?

    • I don’t believe anything “gives” Carlos. It’s a question of defining what the conventional aesthetic is for any given person – or culture for that matter. It appears to me that the creative team has attempted to highlight the black model’s [pure] African features which are equal in terms of what might be deemed aesthetic beauty. I think that’s a good thing.

  2. Dear Rob. I think the stylist might be a little offended that you didn’t deem it necessary to credit her. It is almost purely her work that makes this shoot not forgetting the Hair and Make Up, they are the artists involved after all. It took me years to realise ( and I tell my assistants all the time ) that it’s not enough to take nice pictures. It’s the team that counts almost as much as you do, if not more these days. A fashion shoot is a collaboration if any element of it is “wrong” it wont make the impact you want it to. I’m sure this comes under the “omissions and errors excepted” but thought I’d use the opportunity to make a valid point that is difficult to get when you are a good photographer starting out unless you get it from the get go. Casting , Styling, Hair, Make Up if one of ‘em’s wrong it wont strike the right note with the people who it is aimed at. BTW I love your blog Rob.

  3. Alasdair Mclellan is a great modelling photographer. Nice collection of clicking. I think some colorful photographs are required here in this edition. Why here not show clearly subjects details.

  4. Wonderful images. I do agree on what Gary Houlder pointed out about stylists. Their skill can make a shoot go from ooh to ah. Nice to see B/W images continue to be more used than in the recent past.
