Lecture Notes on Fashion As A Photograph

I recently had a really interesting lecture on fashion photography, I enjoy photography and so it is a subject I have a real personal interested in. The notes for it are above but there were a couple of pictures which particularly caught my eye on the slideshow:

Firstly this photograph of Eileen Agar by Lee Miller, I think it is amazing the way that she has taken the photo of the shadow against the white pillar to make the texture of the stone look like the material and the shape of the skirt. Also I think the contrast between the dark shadow and the white pillar makes it more effective!

The other photographer that caught my eye on the presentation was Richard Avedon, I think the first photo with the elephants is visually amazing, the dress looks particularly striking against the elephants skin. With the second photo of Tina Turner, I like his way of capturing the person in a movement or emotion, rather than just stood still in the way that fashion  photographs were at this time. I think it provides a much more interesting photograph!

Lecture Notes on High Culture/Low Culture

Avant garde is art/design  that is progressive and innovating and is often used to describe things in the fashion industry, however many people question whether it really is avant garde as we constantly see styles and ideas being recycled in fashion and trends being used again. However after seeing work from recent artists like Gareth Pugh, I think that he could easily be described as avant garde, his amazing work and the structures of his garments are a much needed change for a fashion industry that has become quite boring and similar all over the country.
