SO HERE IS THE QUESTION OF THE DAY:
Does photography represents something real (especially fashion photography)? And even more importantly should it show something real? (There are lot are people complaining that models looks unrealistic) I mean even in non-fashion photos it is always photographers point of view... the angle, focus etc. And we all are familiar with PHOTOSHOP (speaking of it watch this video.... I almost fell down the chair when I first saw it hahaha)
What I think is that photography should tell some story, some tale that is at least a little unrealistic... It would create this fantasy world... and I guess it's good because we all like to dream. Don't we? This is what captures our attention...
After all if we need a dose of reality just look around!
Even the "street-style" at blogs from the fashion weeks... come on those people change their outfits several times a day... some of them spend more time dressing-up then actually working :)))) (although dressing is part of their work)!
But I think it is SOOOO COOL! I do LOVE seeing Miroslava Duma or Anna Dello Russo in countless dazzling outfits.
So what do you think... should photography show pure reality or have a touch of fantasy?
