Wow! What a novel take on portraiture. This work by SHSadler for Schön! magazine takes the idea of beauty and repackages in an incredibly interesting and challenging way. SHSadler is a photography duo in LA who primarily work together on what they call, ‘the sculptural form of the nude’, a simple statement, yet one that results in a number of potential artistic directions.
It may not have been easy to shoot, but it really makes such a bold statement. You can see more of SHSadler’s incredible work on their website here. Be aware – because they work on nudes this site would be considered NSFW!

Pieter Henket is a New York based photographer who has photographed some of the world’s top stars. In this project, Congo Tales, he turns his eye toward ecological efforts – photographing the people, culture and ecology of the Congo Basin; one of the world’s largest rainforests. Rather than go for shocking, sad or ‘expected’ photography to highlight an area like this, he has used his fine-art / portrait style to create images that serve not only as warnings to us about the importance of looking after our planet but also as beautiful pieces on their own.

Dove has such a great creative platform from which to work, which is always about celebrating real life – not the kind of unattainable images and scenarios that advertising can easily fall prey to. And for Baby Dove, in Canada, Ogilvy did an amazing job at capturing real moms having meaningful moments with their kids, showing the real beauty of child-rearing.
We think a lot of brands could take a note out of this book – more please!
