Photographer Boo George is one of fashion’s most exciting new talents. He now counts Louis Vuitton, Emanuel Ungaro and Barneys New York amongst his commercial clients and has developed an aesthetic that is immediately recognisable for its realism and measured composition.
Having started his career in 2006 assisting Julian Broad, Phil Poynter and Bruce Weber, George swiftly navigated the path to become an established photographer in his own right. Editor Katie Grand gave George his first break in 2010, commissioning him for a shoot in Condé Nast’s biannual Love magazine. George’s series of portraits of Zambian diamond miners had caught Grand’s eye. His documentary-inspired photographs, capturing moments of unguarded humanity, have become the photographer’s calling card, reminiscent of his idols, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn.
The photographer was the winner of ‘The Shot 2013’, an International Centre of Photography and W magazine-sponsored competition to find the next generation of fashion photographers.
George’s work has been featured in i-D, Teen Vogue, T Magazine, Love, L’Uomo Vogue, British Vogue, Arena Homme Plus, V, and Interview Russia. — businessoffashion
