Based in Sydney, UK-born photographer Corrie Bond (b. 1974) translates a love of light – whether natural or artificial – into a sophisticated portfolio. Softly-nuanced silhouettes are central to the works, which have been commissioned for numerous editorials with clients such as Marie Claire, NY Times, InStyle and Sony. The images execute feminine style with elegance: muted colours create a palette against gracefully poised models whilst their surrounding subject matter is introduced subtly and methodically. Natural phenomena linger recurrently within the frames: pastel flowers accentuate the delicacy of figures, whilst vintage cars and minimalist architecture provide the backdrop for Bond’s lustrous depiction of contemporary fashion. Although adhering to a classic sense of beauty, the models exude a sense of purpose, captured with gentle attention to detail and polished technique. www.vivienscreative.com.au.
