Out of the Shadows

The low light storytelling of Richard Vantielcke
At first glance the images of freelance photographer Richard Vantielcke seem to be stark, appearing to simply show the cold reality of urban cityscapes in the middle of the night. But look a little closer and you can begin to see humour, narratives and clear concepts within his pictures. In an exclusive interview he spoke to CPN writer Steve Fairclough to discuss his inspirations and reveals how he creates his quirky style of photography.

Andy Marcus Shares His Lens Selection Process

As a New York City-based studio portrait and wedding photographer, Andy Marcus requires high performance and low distortion in his interchangeable lenses. His brand of choice is Sigma, he explains, “the focusing speed on [Sigma’s] lenses is exceptional. I’m also always impressed with their sharpness and images with no distortion.”

But the reason Marcus selects a specific Sigma lens depends on what it does best for the type of shot he needs to take. We asked Marcus to share which Sigma lens he used in four spectacular photos from his extensive portfolio, and why he felt it was the right lens for the shot.

Meet Zoë Kravitz: Allure’s June 2017 Cover Star

Zoë Kravitz photographed by Patrick Demarchelier
“People always assume I’m much more hippie-dippy than I am.”

Beyond the famous pedigree, the formidable Ms. Kravitz is poised for single-name stardom.

…It would be journalistic negligence to do an interview with Zoë Kravitz without bringing up her style, which is so admired and emulated. We start with the hair: “The platinum’s fun. It’s work. But it’s something I’ve always wanted to do. I’ll stick with it as long as I can.” She laughs at the thought that her aesthetic may not outlast her patience or lack thereof. Her fashion sense seems less of a problem in that department and is firmly rooted in common sense, for all its bohemian overtones. “I’ve always liked contrasts, contradiction,” she says of her fashion tastes. “I think too much of anything doesn’t work — like if everything you wear is expensive-looking, you look stale. And if everything you wear is ripped and falling apart, you look crazy.” (Every fashion blogger in the world, please, oh please, take note.) “I like when you can find a balance. I live in New York City. I walk around. I have to be comfortable. You don’t look cool or sexy if you’re uncomfortable; it’s not attractive.”
