editorialesque » karen elson for vogue japan

by Jeremy Danté

represented by women model management, iconic red head karen elson appears editorially for the june issue of vogue japan. shot by daniele + iango, elson appears stunning against a dramtically lit studio backdrop which ignites her iconic hair color, allowing her photographic presence to become enhanced. monochromatic pieces in zebra & striped print with floral accents are seen throughout & elson models each style perfectly. hailing from the united kingdom, elson ranks as fashion’s no. 11 icon. all visual aesthetics taken into consideration, i feel as though daniele + iango are becoming a bit of a photographic one note. they also photographed elson for the summer/spring issue of muse magazine, in which a similar dramatically lit backdrop was seen. while i love the image & can interpret the vision clearly; versatility & differentiation from one spread to another is key for any & every fashion photographer. while i fully admire a visual signature, i also seek wide ranged technique.
