Portrait Inspiration – Arthur Elgort

All photos copyright Arthur Elgort

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Paris was exceptional, I am frightened even to say that as I know with a whip of his wand the Parisian weather god will bring on the grey skies and low cloud.

So starting the week with a beautiful day in Paris I thought I would share more beauty in the work of the fabulous Arthur Elgort.

Those of you that follow my blog regularly know by now that I love beauty. I am attracted to photographers who also love beauty and even though I also look at the raw work of The Terry Richardson’s and The Juergen Teller’s ¬†of the photography world I always find myself skipping back to images where a woman’s beauty, emotions and connection are present. It’s a language I love.

So for those of you who have never met the fabulous Arthur Elgort’s work, here is a little Monday morning snack. Arthur is in his 70’s and still shoots for the world’s most fabulous magazines and is the master of the ‘snapshot’, images that feel like they happened naturally.

What an inspiration, I hope I am still making the pics I want to make when I am in my 70’s.

He is also the photographer of Camera Crazy, a fabulous book where he shoots people shooting!

Royal Ballet Bow to Arthur!!

    Carla, I love Arthur Elgort and so nice to read your perspective on beauty vs the Terry Richardson stuff–(although I like his take when he shoots glamour). It was always love at first sight with Arthur Elgort. Adore the shots you picked! Glad you had a good weekend!
