From Raw Rebel Photography to Revealing Model Closeups

By: Jana Pijak - Sep 11, 2014
While high fashion is often synonymous with photoshopped imagery and unrealistic versions of beauty, this list of candid fashion editorials aims to change these notions. Instead of heavily applied makeup looks and carefully posed models, these image examples are all about raw and spontaneous captures.

Memorable examples from this list of candid fashion editorials include raw rebel photography and revealing model closeups that are often lensed without any makeup. Whether boyish and vulnerable or girly and understated, these fashion photography finds aim to replace the fantasy often associated with fashion with a much-needed dose of reality.

Despite of his controversial career, a pioneer of this aesthetic is photographer Terry Richardson. His candid shots of celebs like Rihanna, Miley Cyrus and even president Obama reveal a real and relatable side to these mystical and unknown individuals.
