Icebergs without Names

Exploring the arresting photographs of Jean de Pomereu is like starring down the barrel of a daring arctic adventure. Blistering cold and blazing whites, we can almost here the arctic winds whipping around our ears...

Jean de Pomereu is the master when it comes to visual interpretation of Antarctica. He first visited the driest continent in the world in 2003 and has since returned on numerous occasions as a member of several different artistic and scientific expeditions, including the most ambitious arts project ever undertaken in Antarctica - Lita Albuquerque’s Stellar Axis Antarctica.

His images seek to interpret the Antarctic experience in all its haunting simplicity and free from any form of perspective.

“Many early Antarctic photographers would seek to grasp perspective by placing human objects of reference in their compositions, but which I prefer to distil to its minimalist, often abstract essence” says Jean.

Photographs from Jean de Pomereu’s expanding body of Antarctic works have been exhibited in galleries and museums in France, Belgium, Spain, the UK, the US, China and New Zealand.

Pop over to his website and start exploring for yourself.

Deep Forest

If the trees could talk, we wonder what sweet secrets they’d whisper to us about these beautiful woodland warriors who have been captured as part of Katrina Tang’s ‘Deep Forest’ shoot for Milk Magazine Japon...

"Katrina's heart and camera belongs to photographing children" (Kelly Kipper, Eesti Ekspress) and we couldn’t agree more. This magical shoot makes us want to live in the forest with a family of friendly fauns and pixies.

Born and raised in Estonia, Katrina Tang now divides her time between New York, London and Estonia. Her commercial portfolio is pretty impressive, having shot for some of our favourite children’s brands like Oeuf, Milk and Pale Cloud.

Tang has an instinctual style when it comes to her photography: “I like making mistakes, letting my creativity flow freely. I’m not always framing correctly or choosing the right angles” says Tang. We love how each frame has a wonderful narrative of its own, leading the mind a drift to another world.

And when it comes to working with children, Tang advices it’s all about treating them as your equals: “Be a friend, not a grown-up looking down to them, both figuratively and literally. Make eye contact as you say hi, squat if needed, but be on the same level”. Sound advice.

Head over to Katrina Tang’s website to explore more of her delightful projects.

Sweetly Surreal

These surreal and dreamy photographs are the work of the incredibly talented commercial art and fashion photographer, Rus Anson. Rather than being known for a particular routine or style, Anson is instead celebrated for her capricious photographs, which always express a unique take on the world...

When asked what inspires her, Anson listed everything from her grandpa's stories and children's books to her friend's hair and smile. We highly recommend getting lost in more of her work over on her website.

Moonsafari

This beautiful co-lab between photographer Yulka Wilam and children’s fashion brand Kids On The Moon has taken us on a mesmerising adventure into a children’s fantasy land. The graceful images and poetic and imaginative, and bring back memories of our own free-range and creative childhood...

This shoot is anything but the typical fashion shoot - instead of pretending to be models, the kids are natural and focused on what they love doing. The result is something far more sincere, unprocessed and alluring to look at.

Yulka Wilam mixes different photography techniques – analogue, digital, polaroid, black & white and colour, portraits and landscapes – to celebrate the magic of childhood and “the uncommon dreams of common children”.

The collaboration was initiated by Kids On The Moon as part of their brand strategy to cooperate with artists around the world to develop and promote art, creativity and passion in children from the early years.

Kids On The Moon is a no gravity brand for kids, created under the full moon. Best worn during night walks on roof tops, playing in stardust and attending formal meetings with UFOs. Check out their full range here.

Oui Paris!

We’ve featured the beautiful photography of Mélanie Rodriguez twice before on Little Gatherer so there is no doubting that we seriously adore her work. So when she recently teamed up with the very talented children’s stylist Deborah Sfez and it was a partnership we could not ignore...

The pair got together for the new AW14 Campaign for Australian brand Fred Bare, which was shot in Paris earlier this year.

"The collection was inspired by one of our favourite cities, Paris so naturally it made total sense to shoot the campaign there".

We think these stunning images perfectly capture the romance and beauty of the city – we are instantly transported back to times when we have been sitting in a café perusing the locals are they meander by.

We love the soft winter hues and brilliant everyday moments of being grown up that have been captured in each of the images. You can find more information about the photography, styling and Fred Bare AW14 range below.

Wilderness Queens

This stunning shoot from Steven Visneau 'Wilderness Queens' is nothing short of mesmerising. Put together for Issue no. 17 of Small Magazine these beautiful images will leave you completely entranced...

Styled by Steven's amazingly talented wife Christine Visneau, the shoot features some seriously rad antler headpieces and angelic dresses, not to mention some of our favorite brands like Tutu de Monde and Mini & Maximus. No wonder we are in love.

Modern, indie, artistic and effortlessly cool, we love how it captures a sombre yet playful mood and proves that kids fashion shoots can be as edgy and editorial as grown-up shoots.

See more wonderful work from Steve Visneau here.
