With fantasy and futuristic elements among this year’s predicted creative trends, we have a lot of possibilities to look forward to in the photography world. New York-based Alexander Berdin-Lazursky is one of the photographers to watch out for if you’re interested in these trends, or simply want to see extraordinary concepts in fashion photography. His latest set of portraits, curiously titled Lamb of Future, is a fine example of how surreal his visions can be.
Alexander is simply one of those artists whose creative minds you want to pick. With projects like Colors Loves Neon, and now Lamb of Future, you can’t help but be amazed at what inspires his beautiful mix of creative disciplines. While the two projects are fashion portraits at the core, they also have a challenging visual character that is certainly fitting of the futuristic label.
Familiar elements from Color Loves Neon are also present in this new body of work. However, it’s not quite accurate to call it a sequel or even a follow up. There’s the subtle neon palette of red, blue, and green. Clear, resin-like contraptions also adorn his muse as strange, glowing statement pieces. An air of mystery pervades alongside the futuristic imagery that makes it eye-catching.
But then, there are certain details in the way Alexander meant for the set to be viewed that make Lamb of Future extra challenging to decode. Are the halo, the Bible passage, the phrases, and the title itself allusions to a religious figure? Or maybe someone whose personal story is defined by tragic religious undertones — like Joan of Arc?
All this, of course, is mere conjecture. I suggest to just immerse yourself in Alexander’s brilliant take on the futuristic fashion concept.
