About fashion, photography, and photojournalism…

Ben Lowy posted several links on his Facebook page yesterday to Fashion Week work he shot for Vogue.com…and once I retweeted this info on my @photojournalism feed…some people seemed to take issue with it, as if posting something related to fashion wasn’t appropriate for the feed or for this blog…. now, I don’t want to get into any discussions on what is photojournalism and what is not… I would only like to point out that if I have a great admiration towards Ben Lowy as a photographer as I do, I’m interested in seeing whatever he shoots, and I’m sure there are others out there feeling the same way… so I think it’s completely valid to post it both on my Twitter and here… but my main point is that I like good photography, PJ or not, and if it’s done at a fashion show, I don’t care…And talking about good photography… some of the visually most stunning pieces I can remember from the past couple of years have actually been done of fashion shows…. the features Christopher Anderson (here) , Marcus Bleasdale (here), Paolo Pellegrin (here), and Lowy (here) did for New York Magazine…

@benrobertphoto chipped in to the little Twitter debate about fashion and photojournalism by posting a link to this interesting video on Agence Vu website…the page has loads of links to lot of other very interesting looking pieces as well…
