From Forest Fairy Photography to Softened Photoshoots

 - May 12, 2012
Fashion photographer Vivienne Mok has been described as an auteur for compelling reasons. Her work is distinguished and inspiring.

Mok's sense of lighting is impeccable. Virtually all of her published photographs are imbued with a languid, iridescent glow. One can almost feel the warmth of the sun as it floods through her shoots. This instinct for light is accented by a deep understanding of shadow. Mok uses darkness sparingly, but poignantly, obscuring corners and creating silhouettes here and there for an intriguing, mysterious effect.

The fashion she shoots is unapologetically feminine. From flowing dresses to intimate boudoir wear, the couture is breathlessly graceful and effortless elegant.

The aesthetic of Mok's photography is reminiscent of a feather falling lightly through mists in the soft glow of a summer sunset; it is fashion photography that borders on art.
