ARC Presents: Fiorenzo Borghi
Some of the best photographers and videographers in the world walk through our doors every day. ARC Presents is our series highlighting their work on our blog.
Many photographers depend on the model to give them interesting lines and shapes, but Fiorenzo Borghi takes no chances. With the attentiveness of a choreographer, he experiments with the human form, while never distracting from the clothes. The bizarre and intriguing scenarios expressed in these poses lend the images a mysterious, oblique quality.
Forget the magic hour, Borghi prefers shooting, by the looks of it, at high noon, where sharp shadows contribute starkness to the clothes and background.
Borghi manages to take simple setups and invest them with a startling beauty. Take, for example, the beach shoot, in which massive colored flags modifying the harsh sunlight to create an utterly alien effect. Or take the street shoot that takes advantage of the simple bold colors outside a standard NYC construction site.
