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. Stats for Softly Hued Angel Photography Trending: Older & Average
