Here is 18 minutes of video shot during Damien Lovegrove’s recent Concept To Print tour. In this section he is discussing the ideas and images in his book titled Chloe-Jasmine Whichello.
The Chloe-Jasmine Whichello book is loved the world over by photographers and artists for it’s simple beauty and design.
“Chloe and I set out on each shoot to create a series of photographs with a depth of emotion and a rapport that lingers.” Says Damien. “We worked through the tears and laughter to capture these pictures full of personality and beauty. I sculpted the light and together we created the moments that have been captured here forever. When you look into Chloe’s eyes in these pictures you can see into her soul.”
Here are sample spreads showing the layout strategy and use of both negative space and full bleed design.
“This really is a photographers style and posing guide. It’s rich in variation and covers all bases. It’s not one with f/ numbers and focal lengths, it’s on another level entirely. It’s about communication between Chloe-Jasmine and I, It’s also about art, design and composition. Many well established theories of good practice are challenged in this book. It’s a body of work that is eloquent and self supporting. Despite the vast array of photographic techniques employed to create these pictures, the book has a rhythm. There is a core continuity and a narrative that is bourn out in Chloe’s poetry. Some would say it’s a naive work with substance. All I know is it’s a work of passion.” Damien Lovegrove.
