Hill Partnerships Ltd commissioned me to photograph staff on one site in East London and a completed building in Wembley, well the show homes were completed, and very beautiful they were. The weather wasn’t great for the construction site shots, but by using some portable lights some life was injected into the images. Great bunch of people to work with at both locations.
The V&A exhibition of the photographs of Horst P Horst continues till 4th January 2015, so plenty of time to get down to South Ken to see some of the greatest Vogue covers shot. A fascinating collection of fashion images and personal work. I found the shear number of covers he shot for Vogue truly amazing, and the curators must be congratulated on the way they display this vast collection. But, and this is a similar complaint I had with the Bailey exhibition, I was disappointed with the size and prominence given to his most famous work. In particular “The Mainbocher corset” which while interesting to see how it had been retouched for publication was disappointingly small.
