Recently, the Lomography’s International Online Magazine team began writing themed articles to fuel your enthusiasm and understanding about the vast world of everything that’s analogue! From September 5th to 11th, the International Magazine was dedicated to Fashion in Film Photography.
Fashion, Film, and Everything in Between
Our writers painstakingly gathered interesting fashion in film posts — from classic fashion photography to modern fashion stills in film, from chic and classy fashion icons to vintage fashion advertisements, and from fashion-inspired movies and rumbles — we have them all for you! Here are the snippets; just follow the clickable links to read the full articles.
plasticpopsicle featured fashion in its classical regime. In her Vintage Glamour columns, she went back into the late 1800’s in her vibrant Kodak Girl piece. She also wrote about space age fashion in '60s. Moreover, she also dissected vintage fashion clips from the '70s and '80s and old school Barbie doll commercials. Fantastic fashion magazine covers and head-turning hairstyles during the late '30s were also put into spotlight. Her Fashion in Film columns took us into the analogue future wherein she emphasized the gorgeous analogue fashion spreads of photographers Andy Bettles and Winona Barton-Ballentine.
jeanmendoza is one of our new writers. She delved into the life and works of various fashion photography geniuses such as David Bailey, Katharina Reckendorfer, Lillian Bassman, and Sacha Dean Biyan. She also presented the ballerina-slash-fashion-icon Lisa Fonssagrives and her lovely photographs.
nyebe, another new writer for the Magazine, shared with us the new wave and punk scene of the ‘80s as immortalized in the steaming film photographs by Ilse Ruppert. Fashion aside, he featured Format Perspective, a documentary on skate photography and also CNN’s video clip on film being not dead yet. He also revisited the 9/11 tragedy and wrote about James Nachtwey's unpublished film photographs during that historical day.
shhquiet integrated fashion photography in her weekly Lifestyle series. She chose Michelangelo Antonioni’s provocative film Blow-Up for her Midweek Movies! Additionally, she also paid tribute to the flamboyant Freddie Mercury on Put Your Headphones On Friday.
And lastly for Lifestyle, and hopefully not the least, I, basterda, finally got to feature articles for the Magazine again after some hibernation. In honor of fashion in film, Sir Richard Avedon and his forever graceful fashion film shots were accentuated and well-praised in my latest installment for the Best of the Best series. Of course, fashion won’t be complete if it weren’t for models and muses and so I dedicated a piece for the forever fabulous and fashionable, Twiggy — my personal favorite!
Tipster and Competitions
Lomographers could be fashionistas, too! In the article, Shooting Fashion: Posing, cruzron fleshed out a number of expressive guidelines on how to strike different poses. However, if you want to stick to the basic and simple, jeanmendoza teaches how to mimic classic art into fashion photography as well.
These Tipsters would definitely inspire you to join our fashion-inspired rumbles! Show us your most wistful coo, strut your best angle, and submit your most fashionable entries to the following new competitions: Fabulous Fashionista, Lomography Lookbook, and Lomography Polyvore.
