We come across so many interesting and innovative approaches to magazine photoshoots that we don’t envy those creatives tasked with coming up with something novel that will stand out from the rest. All the more reason then for us to be wowed when something as good as this pop-art themed shoot for Vogue Nippon comes along. It’s the brainchild of British photographer Lacey, a Royal College of Prinitng graduate and one-time assistant of Tim Walker. She worked with make-up guru Andrew Gallimore, and they commissioned the brilliant Craig & Karl to produce some 2D illustrations that could be mixed into the images.
The results are genuinely fantastic and it hangs together as a fun, memorable series that enhances rather than distracts from the subject. Your move rest of the world…
