For years now, Hedi Slimane has been a favorite photographer of mine.
While he’s well known for his mark in the fashion industry and post at Dior Homme & Saint Laurent, I’ve followed his work, specifically the black and white film. I was first introduced to his photography around 2008 when many of my favorite images were taken. Capturing classic Americana, the innocence, rawness, and the neediness of young adulthood; it spoke to me.
I’ve recently just come upon his work again by chance. Per usual, heavily influenced by young, carefree males in their natural habitats but flecked with images that are difficult to forget.
