Couturesque went analog for fashion week this season, opting to shoot street style looks outside of major shows like Pringle of Scotland and Christopher Kane that took place in London on September 18.
The precision required when shooting on film is a serious contrast to the rapid, frenzied behaviour of a normal street style photographer, who can (and often does) take dozens of photos of a subject in mere seconds. Instead, film requires an authentic connection and feeling of being present, selecting your subject, the correct moment, and the best location in which to show them. As a result, the feeling that comes across is far more real than anything I've ever shot on digital; the anxiety of catching up to fka Twigs is translated through each frame, the glint of sunlight off a showgoer's boots shows up more clearly and evokes the changeable London weather. Each photograph isn't just about an outfit, to me, it is about a memory of that moment.
