Twenty-one year old fashion photographer Anna Victoria Best has released a series of faded vintage-themed photos. Based in the UK, Best's remarkable work has already captured the attention of Nigel Cabourn, Baartmans and Siegel, INDCSN and Velvet Johnstone, names which have provided the rising star with an impressive index of collaborators.
In this street-chic menswear photo shoot, Anna Victoria Best has reworked the urban images by fading them into their practical oblivion. Although it is clear that the models are brooding males, their faces and surroundings have been blurred to the extreme, rendering the details to be almost out of reach.
In line with the faded too-cool-for-school theme are ensembles featuring bananas, worn-out jean jackets and laid-back ponchos. Given the inclination of the majority of fashion photographers towards the precise and the detailed, Anna Victoria Best's adaptation of the obscure is a welcomed shift.
