Dubai, United Arab Emirates-based fashion photographer Toufic Araman's recent series 'Sumi-E' is an exploration of a single shade -- white. While there has been trend in fashion towards clashing colors for some time now, Araman highlights the elegance of a coherent, minimalist color scheme.
The backdrops he uses are simple but not stark. He sets dark grey vines and leaves against white backgrounds for a high-contrast, striking effect. The model is, of course, the focus of each frame, but the various accessories complements her and add a much welcome variety to an otherwise austere setting.
Toufic Araman is an award-winning photographer and trained painter and this is plainly evident in his work. Rather than cheerlead the fashion of the day, he seeks to find and express worthwhile aesthetics.
