Fashion week in New York can be a surprising mix of opportunities for a photographer. This month I personally received a last minute invite by Ivan Villegas to join him document the Diesel Black Gold show backstage for Harper's Bazaar Mexico. I felt so privileged as the activity behind the scenes is definitely a side of Fashion week that is exciting for me. By nature I have always been more fascinated by the bone structure of a show, the unseen hundreds little hands and whispers behind the curtain as opposed to the front seat, full-on finished product. It is visually so rich in stories. I was without a doubt right at home on this project.
Here is my version of a crazy two-hour pre-show experience. Detailed front row runway show available here. And of course few more images of my coverage are posted on my website www.anneclairerohe.com
It's been a while since I have last met you here dear readers. Sorry for this hiatus! Sometimes in life, you do things your heart doesn't necessarily align with, but you have to in order to get to your next goal, as futile as this goal might be. The past two months were all about going against my true nature and I am happy to come out of it. I did shed some feathers in the process. But it gave me great clarity of mind. The clarity that hat I want to keep perusing what makes me happy most as a person, and that is to create images. I actually never doubted that fact, but life doesn't allow me to ONLY do this unfortunately.
Being quite out of the loop, I was so delighted to find out Julia Hetta was behind some of the new Toast campaign this fall (below, indoor pictures). The other images created for Toast this season (the outdoor ones) are by Nicholas James Seaton which I am equally delighted by. What a stunning lineup of talents for this campaign.
A little campaign I shot last month at iCi restaurant. I highly recommend this location for photogaphers here in Brooklyn, just ask to book the parlor floor. Really versatile natural light space. As always, I am so grateful for the team of talents that put so much efforts into this unpredictable project and poured faith into my vision.
