This vintage fashion shoot for Fashion Gone Rogue offers quite the contrast with this season’s hyper-colored glossy fashion spreads. Photographer Graham Dunn chooses to portray Kelley Ash as a cool Kalifornia Girl using a vintage Polaroid quality that lends the images authenticity and edge.
He celebrates middle-class American culture by shooting Kelley Ash against kitsch backgrounds such as the Hollywood sign and the American flag. Ash dons outfits from ‘Wild at Heart Vintage’ that include stereotypical American iconography. The ensembles include cowboy-inspired accessories and trims mixed with band shirts and corporate logos that are well ingrained in American identity such as a Budweiser bodysuit and a Harley Davidson t-shirt.
Graham Dunn’s work exemplifies how photo shoots don’t need to be glossy and saturated with designer items to inspire.
