While we’ve posted about David Brandon Geeting a few times before, his new work sees the wry aesthetic shown in his context-defying still-life shots applied to the realm of fashion photography. The figures, clothes and surrounding objects share the compositional weight and contextual absence of his still-life work, the models are very much sculptural parts rather than the stars of any image.
David, who has worked on commissions for the likes of Bloomberg Businessweek, W/—- Projects and The Fader, says that he never saw himself as purely a still-life photographer. “I’m not interested in mastering any certain ‘genre,’ I make images that feel like mine, regardless of content or category,” he says. He considers shooting for fashion as being very similar to still-life or any other work, and “disregards the weight of the brands, not concerned with making a compelling fashion image, [but rather] a compelling image.” Whether commercial or otherwise, “if it doesn’t look cool then it doesn’t matter.” Amen to that!
