A new photo from the Powerhouse Museum every day
The following is an extract from our publication ‘Creating the Look: Benini and fashion photography’ from Hazel Benini:
Shoes were a vital part of our fashion photography. Whatever prop we used it had to be small and in close proximity to the shoes. In Bruno’s career the same clients kept with him all those years. You can imagine how we had to sit down and work out fresh ideas all the time. Apart from using a glamorous model holding a shoe close to her head, we have photographed them on miniature planes, trucks and boats, with kittens and puppies, with Christmas balls and sparklers, with cocktail glasses and ice-cream sundaes.
Our exhibition ‘Creating the look: Benini and fashion photography’ is on until the 18th April.
