Paul Phung is a fashion photographer based in London, but to call what he does just 'fashion' is a gross oversimplification. Paul has the gift of being able to photograph a feeling. He can capture emotions on film. His images dance all over the line that vaguely separates fashion images from fine art. It's no wonder his work has been featured in magazines such as Dazed and Confused, Intern and Nasty.

Kesler Tran is a photographer based out of Los Angeles and New York specializing in fashion, editorial and beauty.

Helmut Newton Reveals the Secrets Behind His Images (NSFW)

In this fantastic little gem of a video, we are able to glimpse at something very few people have had the opportunity to see - images from Helmut Newton's contact sheets accompanied with the stories that go with them. The clip is taken from the documentary "Contacts, Vol. 1" and is one of my favorite videos on Newton. By ignoring any narrative beyond Newton's own words, we are able to witness many subtleties of his character that most documentaries miss.
