Silk by Sølve Sundsbø
Norwegian fashion photographer and filmmaker Sølve Sundsbø infuses his imagery with sharp, otherworldly concepts and experimental techniques. He arrived in London in 1995 to pursue a short course in photography at the London College of Printing and became a photography assistant for acclaimed experimental imagemaker Nick Knight. That pivotal role and Knight’s mentorship, which spanned four years, helped Sundsbø become a highly decorated fashion photographer in his own right.
Although his works appear digitally altered, owing to the frequent use of trompe l’oeil and dramatic colouring through manipulation light, movement, and water, Sundsbø is actually employs many “old-fashioned techniques” and prefers considered snaps to a ‘shoot now, fix later’ mentality.
