We’ve been fans of Hedi Slimane ever since he was working with Alber Elbaz for Yves Saint Laurent and all over his Dior Homme years. But now that he has moved on and changed fashion for photography we are simply crazy about him.
His portraits of young, androgynous, skinny, rockin’ boys and girls represent a world where the most important things are music and enjoying every living moment. Slimane has a very aesthetic but nonetheless poignant point of view on youth and popular culture: his work, (very graphic and always in black and white) is not meant to impress us or make a statement, but to capture the teen spirit. And that’s what Slimane does best: his photographs express all youth obsessions, yet they never fail to transmit a certain sense of innocence, that of “children playing with cigars”.
Here are some of our favourite shots from the Diary. The first two ones are of Ed, our favourite male model at Artificial Magazine!
