    Horst Diekgerdes: Women

The fluid and occasionally pyrotechnic fashion photography of Horst Diekgerdes

Posted by Liv Siddall,

Fashion photography can more often than not concentrate on the unearthly beautiful humans and clothes alone, which is fine – it gets the job done and everyone’s a winner. But sometimes a photographer can come along and shake things up with a knack for impeccable location-spotting as well as being able to shoot both interesting and dynamic shots of the models themselves. Horst Diekgerdes manages to find locations so enthralling that his shoots could either be entire spreads of magazines, or stills from films that no one would dare to make. I don’t know about you, but I really like the idea of him coaxing a model into a tree, or starting violent water fights just to get the shot he needs.
