I prefer the outdoor shots such as the one set over the Venetian canal, as they incorporate an iconic setting with a creative outlook from the photog's lens. What makes Di Stefano stand out from many other fashion photographers is that he usually serves as the creative art director for the shoots, so his eye is a part of the way the shoot comes together from start to finish. Di Stefano has shot for such international editorials as Vogue, Dazed and Zink.
Implications - In photography, whether in fashion, advertising or art, consumers are struck by imagery that incorporates familiar settings, but approaches them with a perspective and insight that is beyond that of the everyday person. Images such as these allow consumers to escape from the restrictions of the everyday world.
