Featured: Photographer – Jeanloup Sieff
I was in the Leica London store and cafe yesterday in Mayfair and we got talking about past photographers. Jimmy who works there and is a wealth of knowledge recommended I look up the late Jeanloup Sieff. A french fashion photographer that shot mostly in black and white and with a style not so different from my taste in terms of – black and white, female models, fashion, strong lighting and compositions.
I am probably unlike many photographers in that I just shoot whatever comes into my head. I do not know many famous photographers..perhaps ten names at an absolute maximum. I didn’t study photography so I missed that part of my photography education by being self taught. I am very practical in my work but I would be lost if you fired famous names at me.
Inspired by Jimmy, I got on the internet when I got home and was really impressed with Sieff’s photography. So much so I thought I would share it here.
Attached is a link to his book review – Jeanloup Sieff – 40 years of photography
