My main theme of the project is the location of Hillfields in Coventry due to the historical relations of this place – production of ribbons , silk and textiles.
Due to the diversity of use Ribbon in the world of fashion I found this artefact as a leading in this topic , so I want to make a photo session -fashion photography, with the use of ribbons.
The implementation of the idea of this,, ribbons-fashion photography,, has forced me to reflect on my skills as fashion photographer. I do not have experience in this field , so certainly, it will be difficult to perform this task.
My first research led not to photograph of Andreas Stavrinides
Very abstract style of his pictures drew my attention, It may be that because his professional experience contributed to the effects of his work, it is worth to remember that the experience and knowledge of what we gain in various fields enhances our creativity.
Andreas Stavrinides studied Sociology and Art History before turns into photography, his specialization is undoubtedly a fashion. On his website he shows the work done for the most important fashion magazines.
its motto is QUOTES “We understand the light from the quality of the shadow That it makes”

At this task , I looked through the many books and magazines as inspiration and the source of the idea on my own pictures.
In many cases I met with repeatability k of ,,posing models,, and also models clothes refers to the ribbons and silk.
