At first glance, I was about to lump Fabian Gloeden's photographic works into that typical fashion group that is comprised of sensual models and dramatic backdrops. That is, until I looked more closely and saw the whimsical quality in each image, which give his subjects a unique perspective and interesting edge.

Hailing from Porto Alegre, Brazil, Fabian Gloeden is a beauty and fashion photographer who has found his niche without compromising his artistic expression. With a particular focus on surreal and romantic lighting, Fabian Gloeden is clearly a fan of color and quirkiness as well.

I especially like how Gloeden has melded both serious and playful characteristics into his work, bringing a much needed dimension to the fashion industry.
