Photographer David Bellemere delivers a contemporary mashup of street photography and glam with a bit of fashion and nudity thrown into the mix. Street photography is nothing new, and it has been a favorite style for as long as cameras have existed.
Lui magazine’s new pictorial wth models Flavia Lucini and Samantha Gradoville takes us to the city streets not to the typical cozy couch scenario best known to glamour photographers. This style is nothing new but is quite trendy and widely seen today in the leading fashion and men’s publications.
This contemporary approach brings less glitz and glitter with it, and the big hair and overtly glamour style have gotten a serious facelift style-wise speaking. This is not to say that glam roots should be overlooked, but as you evaluate the images below, you might recognize the influence of Helmut Newton and Peter Lindberg fused with David Bellemere’s style.
Are we going in circles in regards to time and style? Yes and no. The contemporary approach will aways reinvent itself and recycle with a new look even when you can easily find similarities to a style and pictorials seen some twenty years ago.
What’s the takeaway?
Pay attention to the trends, what’s current, and what sells. Do not base your decisions only on what you see on social media posts and your past fantasies. See what the big publishing world is doing and jump in if publishing is your goal. We have seen Playboy change from its glory days to a less favored outcome. While Playboy is soul-searching for a new identity, let’s open our eyes and see what else there is to learn and accomplish. Never limit yourself to one style, but to all of them so you can create and grow as the publishing world evolves.
