You have to mark this name: SHXPIR (pronounced Shakespeare) is considered one of the new creative class rapidly emerging from China and taking on the world.
I accidentally discovered him. I’ve seen some his photos on Harper’s Bazaar China and I immediately thought: “this is TIM WALKER (great surreal and visionary MASTER of fashion photograhy). Instead He was not Tim Walker but this youg talent from China.
His fine art background gives him a strong foundation in color and composition. While his other great love of modern dance gives him an uncanny ability to pose models.The collision of these skills mean that Shxpir’s photographs are taken from a unique angle that tell amazing and provocative stories full of color.As a result, China’s leading fashion magazines– including Elle, Femina and Harper’s Bazaar – collaborate with Shxpir when they need ideas for presenting designers’ collections.
Then I show you the wonderful photo editorial that realised for Harper’s Bazaar China with a surreal mood and set design, with haute couture dress.
I have noticed that for example on Vogue Italy there is not space for young talents or new names of photography; the same problem is for the fashion designer. In this way you do not have the ability to create new opportunities and to raise awareness to new faces and talents. It’s the great italian problem in all areas of work.
Then fashion magazine like Vogue Germany, Vogue Japan, Harper’s Bazaar are most interesting from a visual point of view…
…and now take a look at SHXPIR.
