Editorial of the Week: Josephine for Oyster #88













I love it when I discover stunning editorials from lesser known magazines. I think sometimes the big names can get too caught up in making deadlines and featuring specific pieces that they forget that fashion photography is, in its entirety, an art. Having widely-acclaimed photographers and top models don't always guarantee a fantastic shoot. Oftentimes the shots look over-processed and extremely commercial. They lack a certain charm and personality.

Josephine de la Baum's editorial by Cameron Smith embodies an authenticity not found in high-budget editorials. Shot for Oyster Magazine, the spread features a dreamy Josephine frolicking in churches and graveyards decked out in Miu Miu, Dolce & Gabbana,and Christopher Kane. I wonder how the church would respond to her black lace corset

PS. It's 4:07 am in China right now, this will be the last post I'll be making from Shanghai for a while!! I board a 12 hour flight to the US at 10am!! I could not be more excited to go home!

  2. Gorgeous. I hope these shots were taken with an actual film camera that has real light leaks and not manipulated with photoshop.
