Jonathan De Villiers
Jonathan is a fashion photographer who has a lot of varied work but this stood out to me. The imagery is similar to some images i have looked at, and tell a story, but a different way of telling it, perhaps a slight ironic twist on typical romance images.
This looks like a typical beach image, great lighting, soft pose, and a natural appealing look on the model's face. Really soft, an endearing look, but all is perhaps not what it seems!
Again a similar image as the image above, but tease a little, and makes the viewer wonder where the images is shot? It does not look like a convential beach image anymore, however this large steel object at the top contrasts hugely with the feminmity of the model and makes us wonder, where is she?
And all is revealed, a transport boat in Paris. All the glamour and class of Paris, which the model still holds, however on this labourers boat, a complete contrast but yet it works, a very ironic image that is really interesting, and also humurous! A fantastic idea.
