Le Creative Sweatshop Photographs Abstract Worlds of Color

Not really sure how these photographs are made by their blowing my mind. From what I can tell they’re designed by Le Creative Sweatshop and photographed by Mathieu Missiaen, a rather fortuitous collaboration if you ask me. On their site they say that there’s no Photoshop trickery, that it’s all natural, and one photo says that it was made using “Plastic and mirror and Shower gel”. Pretty damn cool for shower gel.

You can see more of Le Creative Sweatshops works by visiting their site here.

Cutting Edge Fashion Photography by Madame Peripetie

Madame Peripetie, a London based photographer, has created a series of incredibl photos which feature boundary breaking fashion and styling. Working with art director Eugen Laitenberger, the two of them have collected these images in a book called Dream Sequence which features some of the most stunning costumes and fashion that I’ve ever seen. There are science fiction inspired headpieces, extravagant hair, pops of flowers everywhere, and tons of different patterns. Beautiful, bizarre, and brilliant.

Charlie Engman’s Fashionable Mom

Charlie Engman Mom

A few weeks ago, The Cut named a few photographers to watch. They ran the spectrum of what fashion photography is now and the one who stood out to me was obviously the weirdest of the bunch, Charlie Engman. His image featured an older woman staring at the camera, caught somewhere between fashionable folly and curmudgeonly crankiness. It’s charming and ugly and beautiful, something easy to fall in love with. The image—Above.—is from a series Engmand did called MOM that he did a few years ago for The Room. It’s an incredible series that shows that fashion and style are not tied to age.

Geometric Play Time With Anna Lomax

Anna Lomax Art 1

Most persons born in the early to late eighties will remember a specific bedsheet that I cannot Google to find because it it something so common yet so specific that it is impossible to find on the internet. It was a play on primary colors and geometry: it was a white sheet with a black grid that had red and blue trim with infrequent green, yellow, and more shapes placed throughout. The concept is something between Memphis Group and DJ Tanner’s bedroom. Sound familiar? I hope so (because I still cannot find a photo of it).

Whoever made these sheets had a big influence on the current crop of designers and artists. That’s why there is so much pattern clashing and playing with geometry. You see it from Will Bryant to Stephanie Gonot—and my theory is that these bedsheets had something to do with it. This idea jumps across the pond too as artist and art director Anna Lomax has felt this too. Her work is a huge playing with pattern playing and collision of forms. It’s artistic play time that is quite wonderful.

John Goldsmith’s Normally Abnormal Street Photography

John Goldsmith Photography 1

John Goldsmith is a Vancouver based photographer. He does a lot of projects and portraits but his street photography has to be his strong suit. It’s not that he’s capturing fashionable street scenes or crushing cultural commentary but instead is finding rich oddity in the world around him. His camera is somehow able to find things the normal eye is missing, to capture specific moments where something is weird, be it from your perception being off or that you are just the right angle. This element of fleetingness is why his street photography is so great: it catches abnormalities in normality.
