用時尚批判社會 Steven Meisel

時尚攝影總是風花雪月高高在上?對美國攝影師Steven Meisel來講,還是一種宣言。他鏡頭下的模特兒從不缺乏華麗服飾,可他的影像裡還多了一份對社會事件的回應。他說Obviously I feel that fashion is totally racist,不平則要鳴,他以一輯輯照片挑戰社會的既有價值觀,黑人女性、恐怖主義、女性整容⋯⋯他鏡頭下的時尚攝影沒有堅離地的距離感,而是用講故事的攝影手法去描述一個現象或文化,含蓄卻有力量,讓人過目難忘。

現年63歲的Steven Meisel向來低調,留有一頭黑色長髮樣貌標誌的他,甚少出席公開活動,也很少接受傳媒訪問及拍攝。只知他自小已對時尚相當着迷,當其他男孩子吵着要玩具或相機時,他卻鍾意拿着《Vogue》及《Harper’s Bazaar》等時尚雜誌畫素描,12歲時還讓女性朋友假扮攝影大師Richard Avedon的秘書,向模特兒公司要照片。為了見到當時走紅的模特兒Twiggy,甚至在時尚攝影師在Melvin Sokolsky的工作室外守候。

Steven Meisel最初並非攝影師,而是一名插畫師,同時兼職在設計學院教插畫。儘管當時他很仰慕Irving Penn、Bert Stern等攝影師,卻從未幻想踏足時尚攝影這行業。1970年代,時尚雜誌還流行用插畫做封面,他輾轉到《Women’s Wear Daily》做插畫師,平時也利用閒暇時間拍攝模特兒的試鏡照片,後來成為著名女演員的Phoebe Cates正是其一,當年她帶着 29 more words

Book Review: Black Beauty By Anna Sewell

Hello everyone,

Today I have decide to do a book review on Black Beauty. It is a novel which has been sitting on my bookshelf for months and I have finally decided to read it which is wonderful! 212 more words



Your beauty amazes the skies,

You’ve won favour from the sun,

How its rays traces your figure onto your shadow,

Jealous of the moonlight,

When it unveils the scene of your pectorals to me. 184 more words

The Crown That Made Her Queen

For years I have been out here trying to persuade beautiful black women to be proud of their individualities. They have unique qualities which usually include a dark-brown pigmented melanin and hair, black and nappy with untamed edges, but many (both men and women) prefer the enhanced beauty attributed to makeup. 551 more words
