Melissa Schriek, when the body is part of the environment itself

Melissa Schriek, when the body is part of the environment itself

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Melissa Schriek is a Dutch photographer who uses the visual power of the body and its gestures to make it an integral part of the environment in which it is located. The ethereal figures seem to float freely within the spaces that they themselves mark with their extraneous and at the same time indispensable presence.

“The body seems to be a contradiction in itself; it’s personal but it is also political: I’m fascinated by those contradictions: they are dramatic but also humorous; there is loneliness and togetherness, and you see private and public at the same time.”

Human relations become part of a global design, where the body is used as an instrument of physical and emotional connection. The artist stated that her research immediately revealed itself as a spontaneous need:

“Fin da giovane sono stata affascinata dal mio corpo. Il modo in cui può assumere forme, come lo posso scolpire e come può muoversi. È il motivo per cui ballavo quando ero più piccola e mi ci è voluto un po’ di tempo per capire che potevo mescolare questo interesse con il mio interesse per la fotografia, unendo le discipline”.

Using her experience with dancing and her artistic sensibility, Melissa Schriek has managed to give voice to the image that for her represents the purest essence of the body.

Yenata, the NSFW gets even more perturbing

Yenata, the NSFW gets even more perturbing

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Yenata is a Korean photographer who produces strongly perturbing and provocative NSFW images. Her shots have been published on Playboy.
Yenata is a Korean photographer who started shooting as a hobby when she graduated in fashion design from the university. Since 2016, however, she has been completely focused on photography and shooting her friends with provocative images that give us an overview of the carefree nature of modern Korean youth.

Despite being an emerging talent, the artist has already published in Nylon and Playboy. Yenata’s unique NSFW style explores the intense contrasts between the shades of red and black and the unshakable looks of her subjects that leave a lasting impression on viewers:

“I like strong moods. It’s really simple, but strong. Most of the subjects are friends that I often shoot naturally, as if it were a game”.

Yenata reveals the sensual face of Korean youth without embarrassment, but as if it were part of everyday life. Continuing her passion for fashion, Yenata has worked with designers such as Rei Kawakubo and Vivienne Westwood, creating original works.

“I’m usually inspired by myself, my friends, music, movies, dreams and nature; everything. I remember and record these things to photograph”.

Although Yenata may be young, she is definitely on the rise not only in her home country, South Korea but also internationally. The perturbing and allusive images are part of a general and sexualized view of the fashion world, the world of young people and the primordial expression of creativity.

Mous Lamrabat, two worlds that merge

Mous Lamrabat, two worlds that merge

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Mous Lamrabat destroys the rules of an imaginary to write about new ones through a unique style that blends Western symbols with Moroccan imagery. Combining love with humour, his images convey messages of respect, acceptance and dialogue between cultures.

After studying interior design, Mous decided to devote himself entirely to the production of images and motivated his choice in this way:

“This is the beauty of photography. I love being creative every day. The only “negative” thing is that your brain is trained to work on extra shifts, so it never stops. When I go to bed, it takes me a long time to turn it off”.

The artist has Arab roots, although he grew up in Belgium, often finding himself in the thorny position of having to give up part of his identity.

Do you really have to choose?

The answer is not always automatic but often suffered: through photography Mous managed to reconcile his cultural roots, creating a world made of oxymorons, amazement and freedom, that kind of freedom that only art can give. Strange and ambiguous characters become fascinating emblems and mirror of a multiracial society, which looks to the future with freshness and positivity, transforming the unusual into the unique.

You can immerse yourself in the world of Mous by taking a look at our gallery and his Instagram profile.

Original portraits by photographer Othmane Zaidy

Original portraits by photographer Othmane Zaidy

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Photographer Othmane Zaidy, known on Instagram as  @3outmane, is establishing himself as an emerging talent because of his very particular and recognizable style of portraits.

In his feed there are images with various pop influences, characterized by vibrant colors and a playful mood. It takes little to make one of his photos distinguishable from a thousand, such as an object of everyday life, which is enhanced to its full potential in combination with the faces of the subjects, the rest does the light.

His slogan speaks clearly:

“I don’t take a photograph, I make it”.

Behind each shot there is a strong design approach, which structures the image as a whole, nothing is dictated by chance. The faces of the subjects are always semi-hidden, but no less devoid of personality than the more “standard” ones: the very fact of concealing his characters behind the objects intrigues the viewer.

Othmane Zaidy has created her imagination: take a look at our gallery below.

Fashion shots by photographer Can Sever

Fashion shots by photographer Can Sever

Claudia Fuggetti · 5 months ago · Photography

Fashion photographs taken by Can Sever are characterized by unusual, freshly cut shots. The artist, who lives and works in Istanbul, specializes in the fashion industry and has collaborated with several magazines in the field such as Vogue Turkey, Vogue Italy, L’Officiel Turkey and, Marie Claire Turkey.

Can’s images have an extra gear that can be codified in two main characteristics concerning his style and the composition of the scene; a recurring aspect, for example, is the one concerning the pose of the subject, which is always captured in awe.

The reflections and the careful study of the light give suggestive atmospheres, able to give a vaguely ethereal mood, sometimes almost evanescent. Everything is enhanced, from candles to a simple field flower.

The search for a trademark is particularly difficult in the field of fashion photography where everything and the opposite of everything has already been transformed into reality.
