Up to Code

Maybe there is something that gets lost in the digital film process. I’m not really sure. All I know is that I’ve never seen blonde hair look this gold, or glass and sky that looked this crystalline.

Marx certainly has a skilled hand when it comes to fashion editorials. After all, she did study womenswear design at Central St. Martins. While interning at Chanel and Chloé, her interest in fashion slowly transformed from design to image making. She was drawn to the photographer’s ability to create desire in the viewers, and inspire them to dream. Yes, dreaminess is never far from her work. Models look like they’re in complete reverie, lost in thought, as the monuments behind them tower in size and scale. Being also a fan of architecture, I love the way she uses the geometric lines of buildings in her fashion photography work. It’s an A+ combo, that’s for sure.

Marx has shot for magazines like Vulkan, Vein, and Zeum. She has also collaborated with designers like Rejina Pyo and Hyon Park in the production of their lookbooks. Stay tuned in the coming days for more coverage of Marx’s work.
