Portraits of Tokyo’s Most Rebellious Fashion Icons

Portraits of Tokyo's Most Rebellious Fashion Icons

Portraits of Tokyo’s Most Rebellious Fashion Icons

New York-based photographer Thomas C. Card turns the camera on some of the most fashionable and fierce females in Tokyo. In the spring of 2012, Card traveled to Tokyo to document the city’s vibrant street fashion scene. Started in the early 1990s, Japanese fashion tribes sprung up as young people, particularly women, began to rebel against traditional Japanese culture. Instead of taking photos of these women on Tokyo’s busy streets, like in the famous district of Harajuku, he brought his subjects indoors – into a more quiet and intimate environment, his studio.

These fascinating photos have all been assembled into one book called Tokyo Adorned, which was released just ten days ago. Comprised of 132 striking color photographs, Tokyo Adorned is an oversized 12.5 by 15 inch hardcover book that gives us a window into one highly creative world. Set against an all white backdrop, the women and their complicated outfits, with their loud colors and crazy patterns, seem to pop off the page.

As the book states, “The neon, pastels, bows, and vibrant prints of Tokyo’s fashion tribes are unmistakable, outrageous, and fun. Recognized around the world, with huge online followings, the city’s style icons are photographed here against white backgrounds, revealing a new dimen­sion of personality and emotion in these remarkable individuals. Portraits include fashion icon Kumamiki—the vision behind the Party Baby movement and clothing brand—who has a growing global online following, as well as personalities such as Chocomelo, Saki Kurumi, and Haruka Kurebayashi.”

Aerial Landscape Photography by Bernhard Edmaier

Aerial Landscape Photography by Bernhard Edmaier

Bernhard Edmaier is a German photographer, geologist, and author. A strange combination, but he uses these skills to capture breathtaking landscapes from high up in the sky. Edmaier is already a geologist before he made photography passion 20 years ago and founded a photographic agency ‘Geophot – Pictures of the Earth’.

His knowledge in geology helps him to present the manifold colours, forms and structures which the Earth has created without man’s interference using aerial photography. The picture above is the famous Yellowstone’s hot springs. Mats of heat-loving bacteria and algae, which hold carotene, colour the sinter crust and the channels orange and brown.

Driven by his perennial interest in natural phenomena, Bernhard Edmaier travels extensively to deserted and still untouched corners of the globe to gather material for his books and other photographic projects.

13 Queens by Alex and Felix

13 Queens by Alex and Felix

Rulers over surreal worlds.

“There are unfamiliar worlds waiting to be discovered, filled with very well known objects of our everyday life yet staged in an unexpected way beyond recognition, draped with exuberant costumes of various shapes and colours. The insignia of power, the signs of their dreamland, hang from their bodies, stick to their skin and surround the sphere of their heads. These queens have truly incorporated their sensual empire. Every single one a proud queen, patron saint of ornaments, ruler over an empire of symbols, inviting the viewer to lose oneself.” These are the exact words that describe Alex and Felix‘s photography project 13 Queens that is taken from their website.

Alex Gertschen and Felix Meier are Swiss photographers creating photographs in an imaginative world, often absurd and surreal. The models, objects and props are carefully constructed before being to give a magical look. Each queen represent different personalities and stories.

Experimental Photography by Bagrad Badalian

Experimental Photography by Bagrad Badalian

When you say photography, people will think “fashion”, “beautiful models” or “advertising” but photographer Bagrad Badalian created a different niche, one that is different than anything else.

Badalian started this experimental photography project by experimenting with different types of lighting techniques and combining them with reflective body painting. He and his makeup artist Orla McKeating removed the color from their models and added colors of their own with light painting. The camera is then set to low shutter to capture these abstract images as the subjects moved.
