"I think there is beauty in everything. What ‘normal’ people would perceive as ugly, I can usually see something of beauty in it." — Alexander McQueen
My chosen genre for this topic is fashion photography. I have a strong interest in how fashion has different parts to it, the cheap fashion that is lived in and then that which is admired by others. I want to look into the comfortable, distressed fashion seen on the streets rather than formulated fashion on the runways and in magazines. Street fashion is a term used to describe looks which have emerged from individuals and not from studios, and is associated heavily with youth culture. Being able to capture these styles shows us much more about modern fashion than magazines or catwalk shows of high fashion.
