I personally consider fashion photography-or some of it at least-to be art. Not your average Vogue Nippon over-edited studio shot, perhaps, but certainly some of the editorials out there are serious stuff. Many of the foremost artists of the last century were, at least in part, photographers: Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Helmut Newton...you get the gist. Anyway, this isn't a digression into the 'fashion as art' debate-instead, it's a combination of fashion and art-or fashion and sculpture, more specifically.
Got to dash-the Apprentice this week is about fashion (buying from up-and-coming designers, or something? My dad just popped in to give me his scrambled version of the truth) so can't miss it! (I've realised this blog makes it sound like I do nothing but watch tv-which isn't true. I spend a fair amount of time watching it, but not as much as your average teenager, I'd say. Anyway, we all need time to unwind...Standard excuse for the parents every time!
