Fashion from a Different Point of View

1

A look at the fashion of the 40's, from another point of view and in color. All thanks to John Rawlings (1912-1970). Discover part of his archive of over 30,000 images.

John Rawlings (1912-1970) was an important fashion photographer between 30’s and 60’s of the past century. His main client was Conde Nast Publications, publisher of magazines like Vogue and Vanity Fair. The important thing about his work is not just the 200 covers he did, or the 30,000 images on his archive. What is really interesting is the different view that was in fashion. Below you can see some color images with the look of Rawlings.

    A Salute to the Masters: R.I.P. (A Tribute to George Krause)

    This article is dedicated to the multifaceted American photographer George Krause and to his series depicting funeral monuments realized between 1962 and 1963. I was able to know about this series thanks to an important essay on photography written by former Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Director of Photography, John Szarkowski. For this tribute, I loaded my trusty Praktica camera with a roll of Ilford film and took a series of photos in the Monumental Cemetery in my city, Como. Take a look!

His series exposes some of the notions we carry of kitchens and cooking in the only medium befitting of the task: 35mm film.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
