Photography buffs, listen up. Cooler’s very own long-time fashion contributor, Britta Burger, is hosting her first solo fashion photography exhibition next week in London.
If you like the feel of analog photos, then this is totally worth checking out.
From intriguing portraits to deserted landscapes, Britta’s photography straddles commercial fashion photography and a more detached documentary style.
“When I was first asked to do the exhibition I wanted to be serious and only show documentary images,” says Britta, “but then I realised fashion photography is an important part of my work so I decided to mix the two.”
“I’d also become increasingly annoyed with the pressure to sell random stuff and make it look more desirable and expensive than it was.
Fashion editorials are always going to be a balancing act between journalism and commercial work, so the exhibition is about the compromises you make, but also shows people who are more on the fringes of society. ”
Instead of an exhibition catalogue, Britta has made her own free limited edition fanzine for anyone who comes along, featuring photos, posters and quotes.
