Coming from Central Saint Martins, Harley Weir turn into the British fashion industry’s most in demand photographer. With only 26 years, has gone from self-taught photo into the stardom. Her pictures remind of the Pre-Raphaelite paintings, even though she never meant to go for a retro style. This girl obsessed with the youth capture the weird and beautiful, the ethereal and nostalgic, touching viewer’s emotions. Those pictures show faces of people up close, people that are around the artist, and that’s partly one of her identity signs. That’s how you get much more intimate images. They are individuals, not just members of a race, religion or class.
Harley has done stunning editorial work for publications like i-D Magazine, Another Magazine, Dazed and Confused, Australian Vogue and she’s work for clients like Stella McCartney and Proenza Schouler. While having an old fashion sense of art, she often has glimpses of naked bodies, red lips and pubic hair; transforming the photo shoots in something erotic. In the end, everything is combined. Maybe they don’t give away too much, but they say just enough.
