I went to Simon Foxton exhibition When You're a Boy, currently on until the 4th October at the photographers gallery. He is a influential photographer and stylist, working primarily with menswear. His work features in Dazed & Confused and online on Show Studio.
Pieces I particulary liked was smash babylon mind control from I.D magazine issue february 2005. See photograph above, of male models, in clashing prints of roses and ice creams. I also liked the photography from the shoot act kind of random stand off sampler 2004. Where the location for the shoot was a carpet shop, which gave humour to the poses, the designer clothes juxtaposed with the textiles of the carpets.
