Photographer Bruno Maric takes a simpler approach to art with his striking, monochromatic portraits that expertly convey raw emotion while pushing the boundaries of fashion. Some shots are racier than others; Maric's chemistry with his subjects is undeniable, and the resulting sensuality is inherently seductive. Although this shoot entitled 'Rudy's Backyard' is just a test shoot for the emerging photog, it shows incredible promise of a fruitful career in artistic fashion photography.

Offering up little information about himself besides, "I'm inspired by guitar solos and interesting people. I run Fashionography, blog on Tumblr and have a print store," this air of mystery surrounding his career is a part of what makes his photos so innately enticing.

Implications - The direction of fashion is moving away from the conventions of high fashion luxury publications and in the direction of edgier, avant-garde ones that appeal to the younger generation of consumers, whose ideas about beauty extend beyond the confines of tradition.
