A Day In The City

A Day In The City

Ever since I saw some photos by Alex Lambrechts, I’ve been wanting to do a shoot mixing street and fashion photography and finally the dream has become reality.

A few weeks ago, I contacted a friend of a friend who does some modeling and hired her for a couple hours. We went to Milan and I asked her to just walk around or interact with people on the street, pretending to ask directions, sitting in a café, looking at books in a stall, or talking on the phone.

In the end I got some nice ones. Even though they are staged, I  think they have a candid street look to them, whereas I wasn’t really able to convey the fashion aspect. I just can’t pretend to be as good as Lambrechts after one day, but I’m reasonably happy with the results and we had lots of fun doing this. An experience to be repeated, for sure.

I shot everything with the Fuji X-E2, alternating between the 35mm F1.4 and the 60mm F2.4 lenses. We also shot some posed portraits that aren’t included in the gallery below, but are in this Sticky Album (open the link on your mobile device to add the album to your home screen).

    I really love this, Ugo. Your friend’s beauty, combined with the simple class of the fashion and your compositions… just really combine for some gorgeously evocative images.
