Focus on Stefan Giftthaler, Photographer.

One of the things I love about the internet is how you can be mindlessly scrolling one minute, then suddenly something captures your eye, and tempts you to investigate who, what, where, or how.  I love that inspiration is usually just around the corner when you least expect it.

So I came across a couple of images tonight, and had to find out who the creator was, as I just loved the way they portrayed a 60's polaroid feel with soft edges and almost haunting subject matter. There is always a feeling of solitude, even when there is more than one subject in an image. This quiet and romantic imagery is by photographer, Stefan Giftthaler.  

Born in '82, he studied photography in Milan and Zurich and became interested in fashion photography after working on set assisting a fashion photographer during his study. His work has appeared in many publications, and I invite you to check out some of my favourites I have compiled below...You can find out more about Stefen here on his website.
