I love this idea. I think it is because the women who are thoughtful enough to observe the aesthetics of fashion not only have an eye for color, lines, style and design but also have a genuine understanding of what is beautiful on the inside and outside.
Alas, I’m not one of the prettiest young women of fashion; but I have been known to compose a photograph or two, and yesterday, after spending a couple of hours at the Frick Collection ( Picasso’s early Drawings the featured attraction), I crossed over to Central Park with my trusty old Olympus rangefinder. One hour later, I RAN INTO BILL CUNNINGHAM AT WORK! He was photographing the trees damaged by the snowstorm near the Park entrance at 60th street. I got one shot of him in action on b/w film and four candids with my smartphone. It was a humbling and thrilling experience.
Garance (with her most spectacular legs) is a triple threat. Gifted photographer who really sees her subject, illustrator with a charming style uniquely her own, and a brilliantly funny and warm writer. No wonder we all love her and cheer the two of you on!
Most of those girls just follow the trend. They just need a camera to do that. Just because they are pretty, it doesn’t mean that they can take good pics like the ones appearing on this website. A good camera is not enough to be a Scott or a Garance.
One feels safe with Garance, and your photo’s here show her natural soul and I think she just has some thing very special and a talent for fashion and photography… I hope you enjoy each other and know what a very special and unique love…
What do you mean–are you SURPRISED that photography is the most visibly discernible art form these women are embracing? Ok, Garance is gorgeous, her photos are beautiful, and when I saw her speak at Sciences-Po, I was extremely impressed by her intelligence. BUT, at the same time, photography is the only artform that could document fashion these days–it’s not like one could whip out an easel and some paints at/outside of a runway show and do today’s need for immediacy and “accuracy” of representation any sort of justice. And of course, walking around with a camera in cities and wherever else in this fashionable world does not necessarily turn one into a photographer. I think the coolest thing, something you should perhaps explore, is the beautiful women who are attempting to create a more multimedia documentation of fashion: HINT Garance does it beautifully… Video. I think videos, compilations, the collaboration of color and form and music would be more interesting to track as a trend…especially as a feminine one.
Nowhere in his post did he even imply that. Saying that there are many pretty women who partake in fashion photography does not suggest that it is an activity exclusively for them. Putting words into people’s mouths is childish.
I think both photography and fashion are more accessible now than they have ever been. It may be bloggers like you and Garance that inspire everyone to pick up a camera and try. It’s harder than it looks, but they are probably having fun.
I’m clearly a huge fan of Garance and her pictures!
Btw, I’m about to buy the new Olympus PEN Lite (E-PL3) camera. Not a photography expert at all. Have you heard of it? http://girlwithcamera1.blogspot.com/
Absolutely love seeing photos of Garance. Although far from stereotypically beautiful, she’s stunning in her own unique way. They say beauty comes from within and I wonder if that’s the case with Garance. She looks happy and at ease . . . . far more beautiful than perfect features. Her incredible sense of style doesn’t go wrong either! More and more photos of this incredibly stylish woman please. And then some more . . .
Garance is great ! It is the famous hermes bag on the second picture. I love also her shoes, i see them in the French Elle (Zara Store i think, she is incrudible to look for THE DETAIL) . Have a nice day.
Heh! Well, obviously no matter how well a girl or guy dresses up, and how cool they look with a camera, they probably just can’t take a picture like Scott can. But it does inspire some of us to try and its still enjoyable to capture the beauty around us, in fashion, architecture, nature and whatever else. Maybe we can’t do it like the amazingly talented ones, but we still have fun, and maybe look good doing it. Thats plenty.
It’s a shame, however, that almost all the cameras these pretty ladies are sporting tend to be black bulky ugly plasticky unwieldy machines. The girls look so uncomfortable holding those DSLRs that it takes away from their style and fashion, and likely quality of their photography.
