Classic Portraits

I love black and white photography, especially the classic portraits done by August Sander (1876-1964) and…

Disfarmer (1884-1959).

So when I saw these pictures in the latest i-D Magazine I just had to buy the issue.

They’re superbly done by the creative team of photographer Boo George and stylist Caroline Newell.

You can view the rest of the images on Newell’s blog.

Fashion- 1. Christopher Kane dress, Margot Howell shirt and Marni coat. 2. (Her) b STORE dress, K Karl Lagerfeld shirt and Margaret Howell boots. (Him) Beyond Retro shirt, Carhartt jeans and Contemporary Wardrobe boots.

Note- Two books I recommend:

‘August Sander: Seeing, Observing, Thinking, One Hundred Masterpieces’
