    Romain Sellier: HOCKNEY for i-D Online (Stylist Vanessa Deutsch)

Photography: Romain Sellier's fashion shoot inspired by Hockney paintings

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Some cultural figures are so entrenched in the public consciousness that other creatives shy away from making work that references them, unwilling or unable to cut through the baggage that inevitably comes with such individuals. Huge credit then to photographer Romain Sellier and stylist Vanessa Deutsch who created this really excellent series for i-D Online inspired by David Hockney. I like that the duo haven’t been too clever – eschewing some of the obvious connotations the artist evokes – but equally they’ve avoided the clumsy, the obvious and the pastiche. What you’re left with is a strong visual treatment that proves Romain and Vanessa are both creatives well worth keeping an eye on.
