Chloe Aftel, 1980, USA, studied Cinema and received an MFA at the University of Southern California, but got into the photography business. She is an editorial and portrait photographer with a keen sense for style and fashion. She also shoots a lot of her photography on polaroid. Her poetic, lifestyle minded and narrative images are full of life and have a sense of freedom. The following images come from the portfolio’s Lifestyle, Familiar Faces and Fashion.
I chose Chloe Aftel because I like photographers that take pictures with colors like this. I like the “blown-out” colors. I like this particular photo to the right because it reminds me of Katy Perry’s music video. I found it interesting because she takes her photos on a Polaroid.
I also like her photos because they seem very retro. Photos like these interest me because I would like to try to take photos like this one day.
