One Of My Favorite Questions Models.com Asked Photographer Sølve Sundsbø ...


Sølve Sundsbø is one of fashion’s most esteemed photographers and his innovative work never fails to garner attention; whether it is his now classic YSL fragrance campaign or a newly notorious editorial in V, the images Solve creates are unforgettable.

CM: You’ve referenced the incredible amount of dedication that is exchanged during a working relationship between the ‘teacher’ and his assistant when talking about your time with Nick Knight…Have you run into a similar relationship with one of your own assistants which feels comparable to that?

SS: I have been very lucky to have had incredibly dedicated assistants, and I couldn’t pick one specifically. There is no guarantee, unfortunately, that if you are a good assistant you will make a good photographer. Nick has been a persistently good teacher for his assistants over the years, and I hope that I can bring those lessons to my assistants as well.

I believe in this quote of Sølve's "if you are a good assistant you will make a good photographer." It works for everything meaning if you assist Stylists, Chefs, CEO's(DIDDY), and etc...I posted this a while back re read here and you'll knowatimsayin...

With that said Another Fashion Interpreter is looking for a little help not a assistant, but some one who wants to "INTERN" learn the little things(which are the BIG things) in a fast pace working environment. If your interested DM(twitt) me @keefwasheretoo let's see who's down.

GQ: The 25 Most Stylish Men In The World 2010...



Are you trying to get a rise out of Kanye West Style Director Adam Rapoport...? This is kind of left field my BIG brother was missing from this list. But you put his big brother Jay-Z (incredulous face) not that Jigga man isn't worthy, but he just started mentioning Masion Mar Martin Margiela...Kanye's been rockin MMM since... Kanye's was rocking ss2010 before ss2010:? Christophe Decarnin already send him aw2010 and let Kanye preview ss2011/2012...What gives? You guys did 10 Most Stylish Men previous and you add 15 more stylish men and Kanye isn't part of it...I know style icons previous wasn't mention neither, but you keep some in rotation no? Let me know cause I feel he would have been mentioned otherwise...I hope this doesn't stem from his MTV outburst...please anyone from GQ Jim, Adam, Josh... please help me understand.

Lupe Fiasco And Others Spread Awarness While Outfitted in Eddie Bauer/First Ascent...





It's awesome to see some of my style and music favorites take time away from their creative world...to cause awarness around the world. SUMMIT ON THE SUMMIT aka SOTS which I'm sure you've seen the HP commercials...where Artist Lupe Fiasco, Santigold,Kenna, and others recently embarked on a grueling journey to summit Mount Kilimanjaro. The squad reached the 19,340 ft summit of Kilimanjaro! And the goal of the journey was to raise awareness about the absence of clean water access across the world. While doing this the squad wore gear from Eddie Bauer / First Ascent throughout the expedition. Eddie Bauer / First Ascent is proud to be the official expedition outfitter for SOTS, which aims to uncover solutions to resolve global water issues and discuss how to improve social awareness on the issue. They were proud to equip the team for the subzero temps...cool stuff awesome strength and courage to raise world awareness.

Thanks to Sarah for spreading awarness even more...

V MAGAZINE SIZE ISSUE...



V Magazine and Models.com have been previewing V's next BIG ISSUE...And it's pretty awesome, which V is always pushing the envelope doing VISIONARY things and what a way to start 2010...In the fashion world size matters and I don't think certain magazines would have touched the subject. But it's ok because everybody has their own interpretation, but I'm glad somebody took this vision, did it well, and conveyed the message. Kudos V, Fashion Editor Nicola Formichetti, and Photographer Sølve Sundsbø.
