The fashion industry has seen its bevy of esteemed artists and photographers, with great individuals of history including Mario Testino, Nick Knight and Annie Liebovitz as contributors it is often difficult to stand head and shoulders with such names to make one’s own.
Nevertheless, the vibrancy of the industry demands new blood eternally, and with the winter issue of i-D now in stock the world over, the photographer Anna Bauer comes into the spotlight.
Bauer is no greenhorn to fashion: a solid contributor for nearly half a decade, and a master of developed film portraiture shots, anyone who is anybody in fashion has at some stage fixed upon her lens. Names include Alber Elbaz, Anna Wintour, Alison Nix and more recently Gisele Bundchen (at the 2011 closing for Givenchy). Her work makes excellent use of lighting and viewpoint, and anyone with a remote interest or inclination for fashion should sample her raw and simply splendid work!
