”He that loves a rosy cheek,
Or a coral lip admires,
Or from star-like eyes doth seek
Fuel to maintain his fires,—
As old Time makes these decay,
So his flames must waste away.”
Introducing ‘Abandoned Fashion’ – a mesmerisingly beautiful and unique project by Luke Woodford. Luke is an internationally published London and Brighton based photographer, specialising in fashion, wedding and portrait photography, photography training, fine art prints.
Abandoned Fashion Series tantalises the viewer by its ethereal concept, where light and darkness, life and death curiously intertwine to create a new, unworldly vision of what might have been. Forsaken houses, empty staircases and dilapidated walls – all bear the seal of decay, yet they are still imbued with the memories of people who used to dwell there, as if surmising their unseen presence. The ghostly charm of uninhabited spaces creates a dramatic contrast to a melancholic beauty of the young models, wearing inspiring pieces from talented upcoming designers.
