We well know that Viviane Sassen is one of those names that’s big in the contemporary fashion photography field and there’s no doubt that this success is not just because. Her style is categorically inspiring; it clashes with everything we’ve seen before up ’till now. For her, fashion is like a theme park with whom she’s always had a love/hate relationship, a free fall to experimentation.
Analemma: Fashion Photography 1992 – 2012 is Sassen’s first exhibition in London, where we can see her more as a contemporary artist than a photographer. We highlight her colour palettes, incredibly combined, but giving the impression as if they were accidental. She does magic with compositions, her shapes are sculptoric and models are key though they are represented in an unusual way and their faces are not the protagonists. Undoubtedly, Sassen breaks barriers when talking about fashion, adding up her painting and composition talents. If you really want to witness something amazing and you’re in the UK capital city, the exhibition will be at the Photographer’s Gallery of London ’till the 18th of January, 2015. Live art.
