Young Voices in Fashion & Portraiture: Rema Chaudhary
I am very drawn to structure and geometry. Lines and shapes, textures of walls and fabrics, movement and stance…all come together to give my pictures a particular narrative.
Composition, for me, is key. If you look at the work of Arnold Newman or Henri Cartier-Bresson, you see a compositional tension that I find brilliant. There is a perfect relationship between the background and the subject. Their work has been a huge influence in the way I see.
Having said that, I do enjoy spontaneity. Sometimes the most ordinary and banal objects can look so glorious in the right light or if you just go in closer.
I don’t consider myself a fashion photographer. A mood or vibe photographer perhaps, always looking for something that invokes a feeling, the extraordinary in the ordinary, the surreal in the real and possibly the ‘oooh’ in oops!Tags: Anniversary Issue Vol 1, better photography, fashion, fashion and portraiture, fashion photography, June 2016, young voice
