I like the foreground of the picture, but something about it makes me think it could have been even more amazing!

Lovely shot, and nice to see something which isn't stereotypically Sydney.

wow. just wow. such a beautiful and dramatic photo!

 

Blogger DanielleK said ... (9:23 AM) : 

One could gather a dark/gothic perspective. However the combination of the feathers, the woolen warmth and the ruffly overthrow transforms the look into a delicate, soft feminity despite the harsh colour. Thats the magic of fashion and photography. Well done, this is magnificent. I swear by your work, Come to Glasgow!!! Danielle, Scotland

 

Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (9:24 AM) : 

Oh my! This photo/girl/outfit is truly amazing! The textures, the hair, everything! GORGEOUS!

You found this woman just walking down the street? And she posed for you like that? It looks like you happened upon a fashion photo shoot and they let you snap one.
Love the feathers!

Blogger Rachel Power said ... (9:32 AM) : 

Texture is right--love the fringes at top and bottom. The section with the transparent piece of cloth across her face and hair is like an artwork in itself. But was she really just hanging out on the street? So mysterious and exotic. (And when did Sydney get so Melbourne?!)

 

Blogger ana said ... (9:36 AM) : 

I love black and your photos!

 

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 AM) : 

amazing photo, though i must say i live in Sydney and i have never seen anyone dress so dramatically, everyone must know you're here and dress accordingly. I have no idea how you find these people but its a refreshing change from flip flops and singlets.

Perfect, in every way. The clothes look fabulous, and are set off brilliantly by her hair, expression, pose, everything.

Maybe your best shot yet? I think it's a contender, among many greats.

Oh Gail Reid - you will forever be in my heart. You were always so helpful in your TCB store here in Brisbane. Thank's for making me feel fabulous ;)

Wow I can't believe this is in Sydney...this is such a Melbourne look! This is a woman that knows her style and sticks with it! I love the way the various textures add so much depth to what would otherwise be a very drab black outfit. She looks amazing and so elegant...

No one has ever seen this in Sydney.. because she's from Brisbane ;)

This is very nice... She needs a black cat to make the photo epic.

She is quite enchanting and really it's hard to pull off fringe and ruffles well. She surely succeeds.

I am duly convinced that there are no buttons in Australia. It's very disappointing. Not sure I could ever visit a country with no buttons ...

Nice shot.

So editorial. So unlike what we're used to seeing here.

It's great but odd because of her face -- it's not the face of a girl who would wear this. Like a kid in mom's evening gown.

Where on earth is this girl going?

WOW. This is inspiring. Striking photo and striking woman. I love the silver beaded neckline against all the black, and also the feather fringe and chiffon ruffles because they help the all-black look feel less heavy. Just amazing.

I've quietly enjoyed your blog for a long time, but this image is the first one that requires me to break out of my anonymity and say WOW.

I grew up in France and am rather biased when it comes to fashion photography... or maybe picky is the right word... I gravitate towards the intense and slightly abstracted.

Not that what I think actually matters (!) but for what it's worth, from one artist to another, this is simply gorgeous and I would love a print version to post on the wall in my studio.

Lovely shot, but I think you should always say when the subject of your photos is a fashion insider. Gail Sorronda is an Australian designer. I assume she designed this outfit herself.

So good! it has a sort of Richard Avedon portrait taken outdoors feel. I would love to know you just chanced upon this incredible vision walking down the block but i'm guessing maybe this is part of the project you mentioned? Either way, i still get the impression you did just meet her on the street and i love that!

I agree -- I suggest retitling supposedly "on the street" shots that feature fashion insiders to "in the business" or something. There is a difference between snapping someone on her bicycle and catching a designer or fashion editor outside a fashion show in Milan.

Blogger Soren Lorensen said ... (5:17 PM) : 

I love....what she is not wearing:

not wearing a ton of bangles on her arms, not wearing big earrings, not wearing obvious make-up like a red lip or something.

so it is more purely just a person and the clothes and nothing distracting from their beauty.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:40 PM) : 

To musikcricket 3.01pm: why do we need to know if someone in a photograph is a 'fashion insider'?? is so we can take a whole bunch of preconceived notions to form an opinion? Should we subject people to some kind of handicapping system in order to appraise their style and clothes? Sartworld encompasses the highest echelons of fashion and its' representatives at and around the shows in milan or paris to every kind of person on the streets of manhattan (one place where you really do get every kind of person, believe me). Carine Roitfeld in one picture, some guy out grocery shopping, a tourist, or a girl riding her bicycle in the next. IMO whether or not someone is a fashion 'insider' is irrelevant and a little bit missing the point....

Blogger SNVS said ... (7:06 PM) : 

I'm actually amazed that SO many people who have commented on this picture don't even know who she is!

Even though she was snapped in Sydney - she is a Brisbane girl and a Brisbane-based designer and i would bet hundreds of dollars that she is wearing all her own stuff.

She is a very talented designer, has a great imagination and she knows how to get women excited about clothes. I own a dress and a frill from her store and i am proud to admit i paid a LOT of money for them but had no issue with it because her clothes are very high quality and her designs are unlike anyone elses!

And everyone wonders why she looks so fab in this shot - she used to be a HUGE international model!!! She is still present on the Dallys Models website! It's kinda sad that people in Australia who love fashion don't know much about our Australian designers - we should be more supportive of them!

Dear Anonymous (5:40),
mDesiree13 (4:14) has answered your question completely. I would only add that if you scroll through the comments about this very elegant photo, you will find several people who took this to be an example of real street fashion (i.e. butchers, bakers and candlestick-makers expressing themselves through clothes and style) and not of a gifted professional designer showing off her wares. I like seeing both kinds of photo on this site, but I see nothing wrong with knowing what we are looking at.

If you go to Gail's blog on her website and scroll down to the last photo you'll see Scott photographing Gail on the beach. The beach which I had not seen before, I can just now intuit around the edges of this striking woman and striking photograph. Kudos!

how come no one in Sydney actually dresses like this on a day to day basis?? People only dressed well in and around fashion week. You dont see people dressed like this on any other week of the year which is rather disappointing. This girl appears more European in her style, this is an outfit which one would expect to see on the streets of Paris.I feel this girl and a couple of others have given Australia hope in finding people with style who dress like this on a more regular basis like they do in Paris, Milan, Florence, Rome etc.

Blogger dellasposia said ... (8:47 PM) : 

Need to add another commentary (which I think relates to your work in general). What I love about the photography is that none of it is planned, none of it is styled per se (aside from what the subjects walk out in for the day, and what grabs your attention). If anything, these shots are the antidote to all the photoshopped and 'staged' fashion shots in contemporary culture, yet they are all just as remarkable and beautiful whilst doing so. This shot demonstrates just that.

Sydney is really impressing me! I love the all black ensemble, but I especially love the texture, the volume, and the bib necklace. The bob haircut and bangs make her look very Parisian and overall, he looks elegant, sophisticated and chic.

OH, Sir, you continuously surpise me with your gorgeous shots. I'm so glad you've come to visit us in Aus. I was waiting for the day 'Sydney' would be one of your frequents. PLEASE, just check out Brisbane. It's the 3rd largest city and I can guarantee a more casual, flirty array of colors.

what an amazing portrait!
