Willy Vanderperre is one of my favorite fashion photographers. He was born in 1971 in Belgium. He studied photography at the Academy of Art in Antwerp. One the first day of class, he met Olivier Rizzo, a stylist he often collaborates with. I love the minimalist aesthetic of the ad campaign he shot for Dior.(above)
I also love this photo shoot from W magazine titled "Making a Scene". I admire how he mixed different refences (Cindy Sherman and Pina Bausch) without copying the original source.
I cannot express this man's genius. If I upload all the amazing photos he shot, we would be here all night. I am just speechless. Simply speechless.
