Los Angeles based August Bradley belongs to our favorite new breed of fashion photographer. In fact we hesitate to box this style in being called “photography” although it most certainly qualifies as such.
As digital tools have evolved over the last decade we’ve seen a few artists here and there that blur the line between photography and photorealistic illustration, and few do it as well as this. As shown in the video, Bradley makes reference to classical European portraiture styles (think Baroque era paintings of aristocracy) and mashes them together with contemporary fashion. The result is something a little too perfect in some areas to be a painting, but with sketchy details that make brush strokes so pleasing.
