With FilterFashion photographer Silke Schlotz wanted to create pictures in which the main piece of the art is something that the viewer knows and may have used themselves. Her goal is to deepen the connection from the art to the spectator.
Everybody is using social media, Silke wanted to bring social media into real life and fused Snapchat's palette with her own creativity by manufacturing the app's location filters as life sized plastic pieces and photographing them in the actual cities where the location filter would normally appear on screen.
I originally come from drawing but never saw myself be an illustrator for a living. I started photography as a hobby while studying fashion design, the two things naturally merged and I ended up a fashion photographer.
Why am I mentioning this? The job "fashion photographer" got serious hype over the past couple years and tons of new photographers came from it. I was one of them. So how do you define yourself in a sea of people doing the same thing as you?
= personal style
I admire photographers or any artists that easily develop their personal and distinguishable style over time. Whether it was about drawing, fashion design or photography, no matter how much I practice and define my skills, creating a unique style has always been a struggle for me.
After photographing for about 6 years now, I wanted to do something that came from me, personally. I love shooting magazine editorials or client's commissions and while both leave me a lot of freedom to bring my personal taste into it, with a project like FilterFashion I had entire control.
I feel like it got me a step forward and defined the twisted road that professional creatives walk a bit more.
Aside from my personal achievement, what about you? How did you like the project? Did you enjoy the photos? Or the video? Are you also an artist struggling to find your own style? Or did you know from the beginning? Let me know your thoughts, I love to hear your opinions
