Fashion Photographer Andrea Artemisio’s Playful Minimalism

By Rebecca Roberts

January 7, 2013

Andrea Artemisio launches our new column, Fashion Book, a weekly series that highlights the portfolios of established and emerging fashion photographers.

In Andrea Artemisio’s photographs, his models are defined by their surrounding emptiness, often photographing them in sparse environments adorned with very little clothing, not to mention the absence of hair and make up. His use of muted colors such as greys, off whites, and browns, along with an attention to lines, creates a confined world where little else is necessary. But despite this marked form of loneliness cum minimalism, Artemisio does infuse playfulness in the work, and this friction expands the isolated state of suspension in which these subjects live. This is perhaps a nod to Duane Hanson and Ron Mueck, though these artists tend to create full environments defined by more detail, not less as in Artemisio’s work, which pays closer attention to the potential of clothing (or accessory). Rather than focusing on an overabundance of labels and credits, he marries the model’s gesture with the clothing to illustrate and opportunity, a conversation open ended.

Born outside of Milan, Andrea Artemisio currently lives and works between Milan and London.
