Personal Best – “Fashion Philosophy”
Nowadays there are a lot of Fashion Weeks around the world. Four of the most important are – New York, London, Milan and Paris. Three of them happen in Europe. Each of them lasts around one week. During this time fashion designers, brands or “houses” show their newest collections to the buyers and the media. They are presenting what will be important in coming season and what will not. Not many has possibility to see what is happening on the other side. Everything is happening there very fast plus the light and emotions that built the atmosphere and what we can see on model faces.
“Fashion Philosophy” is one of my personal best projects since I’ve started my journey with Fujifilm company in 2012/2013. The whole work started while I was working on Fashion Weeks London, Milan and Paris for New York and The Cut Magazine. Later I’ve continued this project shooting Haute Couture show for CR Fashionbook in Paris.
In this work I used X-T1 and later X-Pro2 cameras with only prime lenses. If you are interested what I had in my backpack please go here.
For images from this project I received three awards at two biggest polish press photo contests in 2016 and 2018 – BZ WBK Press Photo and Grand Press Photo.
