Earlier this week, Hasselblad selected Luupe Photographer Clarissa Bonet as the X You grand prize winner for her pivotal fusion of street, fashion, and fine art photography. Bonet has made a name for herself over the past decade with elaborately staged street photographs, breaking the genre’s traditions with fresh, unexpected and sometimes controversial energy.
“This image is part of a fashion editorial I shot for Chicago Magazine,” says Bonet, “that celebrates both the Bauhaus movement and architect Mies van der Rohe…After scouting the location at multiple times of the day, I knew exactly when a slim beam of light would open on the west side of the building, creating a bold, graphic band of light for our model to stand in.”
Bonet’s move into fashion feels like a natural, exciting step – we can’t wait to see where she takes it.
While Bonet won the award for the above photo, we’re including a few photos from the rest of the shoot below for some extra context. You can see the entire commissioned feature on Chicago Magazine’s website.
The shoot was made extra special with the help of Clarissa’s talented creative team:
