I am not the only one that consider Igor Oussenko one of the best big things in fashion/editorial photography.He managed to make a strong impression with his Kaleidoscope photography project for a retailer, while climbing the ladder with editorials for major fashion titles.Here featured is an interview to Sybil-Ilia.Take it as an opportunity to familiarize with a photographer that his work have already made an impact.
-Was photography an early passion of yours?Or something you discovered latter on?
Photography was a hobby for me for a long time.But when i’ve got my first camera,at 25,i began practicing in studio and soon started to shoot editorials and advertisement
- Could you say that photographers or other visual artists have had,in multiple ways,influenced your aesthetics?
The highest standard of photography for me is the work of Mert and Marcus and Steven Meisel.They always inspire me.
is there a ”recipe” for a good photography?Are you a fan of ‘retouched’ of the ‘unretouched’ side,btw?
I think that a good photography is the combination of the good light,clever composition plus high quality retouch and correction.The image after retouching must be better than before.Otherwise we have to skip this step or,perhaps,a part of it.
What is the difference between”black and white” and shooting ”in color”?
Black&White pictures focus our mind on the soul of the picture instead of diverting attention to the color.
What is finally the definition of ”beauty” for you?
I shoot mostly people,so i see beauty only naturally.Don’t like the modern ”upgrades” of the naturally born sexuality of the human being.
~And now,a chance to get to know him directly through his work~
I have previously contributed to One magazine and i have the utmost respect about the work and the vision of founder and editor-in-chief Nicole Gavrilles She has a passion for fashion and editorial design. By creating ONE, she wanted to further expand her skills and challenge herself to incorporate her love for fashion along with her design work. Issue
one and two were strictly displayed as personal projects and hosted online for public viewers to enjoy. ONE Magazine now is a fashion editorial magazine dedicated to the exposure of talented and world-renowned photographers.
Issue No.8 is out and, apart from being aesthetically great,as always, marks an 8 year anniversary.Themed ‘The Energy Issue’.it is the second biggest issue published and by far the most beautiful released.It features,amongst many other great editorials, an interview of Pola Thomson along with a feature of her AW14 collection.

The Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2014 campaign is indeed shot with exceptional mastery and an eye to conceptual arts with bold colors yet floating lines,pieces that are almost blurring one into the other,showcasing the beauty of the Armani collection while work in life,not in a static photography.Photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott provided the almost cinematic concept with colors-in-motion,without leaving aside the somehow romantic essence of the campaign.Perhaps one of the most interesting fashion campaigns of the season.Enjoy.
”Shadows Of Her Mind’‘ is a black and white fashion editorial beautifully lensed by Guy Aroch for Muse Magazine #35 Fall 2013 starring model Rosie Tapner. An almost cinematic approach and the beauty of different fabrics promptly showcased via black and white imagery,make this editorial one of the best for the new year.

With an excellent selection of garments and a great styling that showcased the beauty of structure and form in juxtaposition of the one of colors, Elle Denmark December 2013 featured one of the best editorials we’ve come across so far. Lensed by Oliver Stalmans and styled by Anna Katsanis, starring model Gertrud Hegelund, ”Cold as Ice” is surely hot!
