Mikael Jansson: "Let's Get Lost"
Mikael Jansson overturns the grimy, greasy underbelly of the urban night in this photoseries called "Let's Get Lost." The scene is familiar at first--a gang of gangly, sweat-slicked city kids falling against each other under the blue light of the industrial night feels almost like a shot out of a music video, yet as you move through the photos the sophistication of these fashion shots becomes increasingly evident. Using color and cloth to dictate the focus of the photos, Jansson utilizes this down-and-dirty setting to intensify the impact of high fashion in the shoot. These pictures capture the sensual fray of the urban youth while presenting its fashion in gorgeous light. As the title suggests, it's easy to get lost in these pictures.
