Behind the Project: Bizarre Beauty for Refinery29

In this series we will look deeper into a work that was especially admired in our community: Bizarre Beauty for Refinery29, created by Leta Sobierajski. The five photo Instagram series is a colorful exploration of the relationship between a person’s sense of beauty and inanimate objects. Sobierajski‘s multidisciplinary design work has captured the attention of the Behance community (as well as clients like Google and IBM) with its brightly bizarre compositions. The Brooklyn-based designer and art director took time to share some of her insights into the creative process with the Behance team. 

What was your inspiration for this project?

Bizarre Beauty was inspired by daily beauty routines and surface-level obsessions. The series contained objects representative of independent, odd, and beautiful situations which highlight what makes a person feel beautiful through the use of inanimate objects. The notion of surrealism plays a part in this project too, and creates situations that trigger imaginative situations with personification. I’m also heavily influenced by Josef Albers’s Theories on Color Studies; creating experiences through the sensory relationships of color is what helped me tie everything together in this project with a reoccurring palette of saccharine colors.

Behind the Project: Silverblack WOOL Campaign AW15

Starting off as a retoucher, Henrik Adamsen eventually quit his day job to become a professional fashion photographer.  We were lucky enough to get to know Henrik, the incredible artist behind the project, Silverblack WOOL Campaign AW15.  Find out why it wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow in Henrik’s footsteps, if you’re an aspiring artist.

Could you talk a little bit about how you started off as a photo retoucher and your development into a photographer?  What was that progression like?
It was actually a very long transition from being a retoucher in the mid 90s… Then moving to London and working there for a while as a retoucher, then AD-assistant / artworker, moving on into graphics design/ArtDirection, and somewhere in there I started shooting just for fun.  That then turned into something serious – so I kinda had to give up my day job. I just started getting too many jobs, that I either had to take days off to do, or to take care of them in the evening. In then end, it was the best decision I ever made – I highly recommend it!
