This zero-saturation editorial produced by the brilliant Sheltens & Abbenes highlights the simplistic beauty in black and white. This photographer and visual artist duo have been working together on various projects for the past three decades. Their particular specialties lie in the meticulous arrangement of objects that have a distinct flat or two-dimensional quality.
The set of photos feature various all-white outfits behind a pitch black backdrop. And because of the dark background and monochromatic clothing, the eye tends to focus more on the shapes created and the textures use in the photography. The overall effect allows the viewer to see the photographs as one whole image rather than separate pieces of clothing. Sheltens & Abbenes believe that, above all, they photograph objects to get clean geometric lines.
