Petra Collins has rapidly become someone I pay attention to. I’d be lying if I said I don’t have a certain distaste for the currant state (or should I say the lack of quality) of images being produced. Her photographs are both romantic and honest but most importantly, captured in her own way. Yes it’s very feminine and perhaps even a little adolescent but thats what gives it it’s timeless charm. The fact that she captures celebrities and her friends all in the same manner is what appeals to my own personal visual appetite. Digesting her images leaves my palette wanting more, which is rare in todays over-saturated, force-fed shit that we all have to gobble up on a daily basis. You can purchase her new book here.
