Caesar Lima Los Angeles

Los Angeles-based photographer Caesar Lima’s portraits come with a certain choose-your-own-adventure quality to them, emphasized by his myriad of protagonists, from mad scientist to Hollywood seductresses.

A self-proclaimed non-conformist, this Sao Paulo-born photographer, with a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising, says he has always gone against the creative grain. His unique style has earned him multiple awards and accolades, including most recently One Eyeland Award (2016), four IPA Awards (2015), Px3 Award (2012), IPA Awards (2011-2013), and Lürzer’s Archive 200 Best Ad Photographers (2012).

Working with clients like Sony, T-Mobile, K-Swiss and Wella, Caesar says to make a good portrait is a challenge; there has to be plenty of expression, mood and attitude to create that one successful image.

Christian Hoppe - SEREGEL Berlin

SEREGEL staged the Artaunon jewellery collection in an innovative and unusual way. The company offers only unique pieces in the finest gold, black iron, or with sparkling precious stones. Old Roman coins are often also used.

SEREGEL created a gloomy, almost mystical ambience; in the centre the black-painted model, the set dressed in purist tones, places the focus of the image firmly on the jewellery. "Exciting. Mysterious. And, above all, noble and precious."

The shoot took place at SEREGEL's Berlin studio. Post-production was handled by Redhaven.

Veerle Van Look Brussels - Antwerp

Veerle Van Look’s photographs mix the playful colours of the 60s with today’s abstract posed fashion photography. The cover of her oeuvre appears to be bright and glamorous, full of girly models who look straight into the eyes of their fictional opponents. Always almost natural, but never spontaneous, these young women get framed into a minimalistic universe and directed towards the uncommon. Where the fashion photographer reaches out and offers a helping hand through extravagant locations and luxurious props, Veerle leaves them standing alone in front of the camera with nothing but her directions and styling to hide behind.

Portraits of beauty are captured with make-up as the best mask available. Standing against a plain background, the models are consistently guided into a controversial or unusual pose. Bending as mannequins, they act as a face for a certain time, style or personality.

Veerle’s professional eye is focussed on the movements of the model’s body in search for a posture or expression that reflects her intentional concept. The photographer’s work method continues in post-production. Veerle handles the raw images as a blank sheet of paper on which she puzzles every piece into their true order. Everything is thought through in advance, created to keep the digital options open.
