Inspirations come from different directions and different sources…art, design, nature, love…etc. The main goal of any situation, work or person that inspires us, is to push the lazy part of us away (or almost on one side) and to start thinking…consequently to create something. Express ourselves. One of the most inspiring and exciting figures in the contemporary fashion (and not only) photography, from the new generation, for me is a Dutch-born Viviane Sassen. Her imagery is flamboyant and always challenging, inventive with moments of surrealism. She has created campaigns for fashion houses including M Missoni, Stella McCartney, Carven and Acne Studios (look here and here). She produced many editorials for magazines like i-D, Purple and Dazed&Confused. In 2007 Viviane received the Prix de Rome and in 2011 was awarded the International Center of Photography Infinity Award for Applied and Fashion Photography. In 2013 she exhibited in the Central Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, her first retrospective.
