A splash of paint
Stunning photos from London based photographer Iain Crawford. With his quite extraordinary approach to fashion photography he has produced a fantastic and unique portfolio full of amazing work. This series where brightly coloured paint is thrown over flawless models, possesses something extra special. The elegant shapes that Crawford captures in that split second are incredible, as if the paint was meant to wrap itself around the model in that exact way…I can’t imagine how the models manage to pose so professionally with paint being thrown at them, but somehow they accomplish it with total grace! The result is a range of brilliant pictures full of emotion, energy, and most of all, captivating COLOUR! The colour is my favourite aspect of Crawford’s work, it’s bright and it’s fantastic! I haven’t seen colour used like this before, to full effect, with one simple, bold colour at a time. With work like this it’s not surprising he’s been commissioned by the likes of L’Oreal, Givenchy, Lancome and Vogue, among many many more. Every time I look at these pictures it strikes me how Crawford has managed to create a feeling of such calm, from such chaos.
