Floria Sigismondi

Thursday, 24 March 2011

To say I am slightly obsessed with this woman is an understatement. I have been a huge of the Photographer/ Director since the day I first saw the Marilyn Manson video for 'Beautiful People'. I even went so far as trying my hardest to get a job as her PA or an intern- I'm not giving up hope yet...

Although you may not be aware of her work, I'm sure it will definitely have made some sort of impact on you at some point. The jittery, angled camera work and incredible styling influenced my degree show work tremendously. She has a natural knack of making even the darkest of context into beautiful imagery.

Her most recent work includes the new video for Katy Perry's 'E.T.' and her feature-length directorial debut on the movie 'The Runaways'.

As well as directing, Floria has 2 photography books (both by contributing artist Robert Klanten- but that's for another blog) 'Immune' and 'Redemption'. They include stills from music video's she has directed for artists such a David Bowie, Sigur Ros, Bjork, Christina Aguilera and The Cure. As well as my personal favourite of hers- 'Blue Orchid' by the White Stripes

The images of Karen Elson walking in those Fetish ballet shoes gives me chills! Love it!
