The first of a series, I will be showcasing the ones to watch of emerging photographers. A UK favorite, the fashion portraits of Swiss/Chinese photographer Jeff Hahn are perfectly composed and equally as interesting. Icelandic native Silja Magg has only recently begun appearing in Marie Claire, Nylon and GQ magazine, but her cool tones and raw portraits caught my eye a few years ago. Parisian photographer and Exhibition magazine co-founder Boris Ovini exquisitely masters lightness and darkness with a fluid sensuality. The bold graphic minimalism of Dutch photographer Jasper Abels is modern and visually impacting. LA based duo Stevie Verroca and Mada Refujio, aka Stevie + Mada, bring bold saturated color and stylized dynamo to their Mert & Marcus inspired imagery.
