Photography: Jamie Stoker takes some beautiful shots backstage at LFW

Falling in stark comparison with many of the fashion editorials we come across from day to day, filled as they often are with angry-looking faces, angular bodies and digitally enhanced everything, Jamie Stoker’s images of London Fashion Week are the essence of classical ethereality. When the photographer was hired to shoot backstage at the event this autumn and found himself in the midst of beautiful girls in beautiful dresses on all sides it seemed only natural that he bust out the very same Contax he used to take these shots at Wimbledon, but this time with high speed grainy black and white film to capture some of that niceness.

The mental image we have of Jamie standing stock still in the midst of a jungle of flashing DSLRs is a funny one, and we’re sure glad he stood his ground. There’s no room for photoshop or carefully refined features in these graceful shots – just straight up beautiful pictures taken on a camera that doesn’t know how to make anything else.
