While we're talking about the snap shot aesthetic,
here a few examples from an editorial shoot
featuring model Natalia Vodianova,
but I am not sure who the photographer is.
(...not too much selling of the clothing happening here...?
I guess this is where the 'lifestyle' aspect chimes in.)
probably best known for photographing Marc Jacobs' advertisements,
is a contemporary fashion photographer who seems to really take that
Munkacsi 'action realism' /
Nancy Hall-Duncan's theory of everyone-partaking-in-a-fashionable-existence,
to a new level.
Some even say that his image making relates to that of a polaroid,
utilizing bright flash and everyday themes.
