This week we debut Capetonian photographer and genderqueer feminist Kelly Makropoulos. Her colour and tone specific imagery sets her own style in fashion photography. Her work explores the affect linked to certain tones and colours. We were excited to see contemporary fashion photography work linking so strongly to elements of colour and tone which mirrored artistic movements like abstract expressionism. Yes, we're likening the work of Kelly Makropoulos to the work of Mark Rothko in terms of colour and tonal play. This modern approach to photography as an art made us eager to share her work.

Her beautiful images will be shared across our social platforms during the week and her interview is up on the website ready to be devoured by eager, web-info hungry eyes.

Colours are very important to them. A good colour or combination of hues can make their heart leap. They can't explain it, it's just how it is for them.

 

Thank You To Davìda Carta - Last Week's Featured Artist
