Despite an initial lack of attention from the fashion world London-based Norwegian photographer and previous Nick Knight understudy Sølve Sundsbø has now worked with all major fashion houses [Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Cartier, Dolce & Gabbana, Dior, Gucci, Hermès, Armani and Alexander McQueen to name a few]. Designer Tom Ford applauds his work, having collaborated with him many times over the last couple of decades:
“Sølve is a great talent in the fashion industry…his photographs speak for themselves. They are powerful, beautiful [and] always fresh.”
Working for W Magazine Korea, Sundsbø shoots Tilda Swinton in an editorial entitled ‘The Aura’ in which Swinton poises in an aural albumen of icy blue, clad in Gareth Pugh, Ann Demeulemeester and Haider Ackermann.
