FOrEWOrD SÝN is bigger and better (we hope) than ever. With an evergrowing number of talented staff and a world full of creative talent we’re hoping SÝN will never cease to exist. In fact we’re already making sure of it. SÝN is growing in so many different directions, there are even words of a video-only zine (Katie cam up with that one) and our blog is doing it’s best to shine. Really, this foreword should be dedicated to you, our readers and contributors, because without you this wouldn’t exist (cliché, we know). This issue has made us feel so much more confident and excited about the future, we can’t wait to get started on the March issue. Now, to introduce our theme of style, we must warn you that what we mean by style may not be what you thought we meant. We wanted stylists to shine through, sure, but really it’s all back to the basics behind SÝN; what’s your style? Now, percieve that as you like, and while you’re percieving, get stylish...

James Fickling

“

Being raised in West Yorkshire, I have an affiliation to the rural and somewhat barren landscapes that surrounded me growing up. There are numerous novels and tales that tell of the mysticism that is associated with these landscapes, which forms as inspiration for many of the shoots I do. My background is in Fine Art, having studied both an undergraduate and postgraduate in it, which means I approach fashion and editorial photography quite differently to others. For me, location is just as important as the subject and the products being advertised, as all aspects need to be having some form of conversation between one another and form a cohesive narrative. Currently, I am juxtaposing the soft and romantic rural landscape with more edgy fashion ware.

Style

I have always found it a bewitching thought, that fact that we each are creators. In extension, the fact we each have the license to create whatever we wish, imagination, and perhaps and sky, is our own limitation. I have also always felt that it must be part of our own human nature to wish to define ourselves; even a free spirit is defined by that characteristic. I think this is where our own concept of style comes from, our freedom to create betwixt our craving to find ourselves. Two weekends ago I sat alone in my room, fastening butterflies onto safety pins and making crowns out of wire. One weekend ago I sat on the floor of a hectic London train station, cello taping autumn’s own browning leaves onto a hair band, ‘for the faeries, I thought.’ That evening my friends spilled into my room and immediately tear through my wardrobe, amused by the white tulle skirt with one hundred swan feather glued to its surface and the sets of wings I made once and hung up in a row. I am an escapist by nature; I live in the worlds I create in my mind, rather than focusing on reality for any lengthy amount of time. My friends comment on how my endless amounts of prairie dresses and dusty colours represent that on the outside, they say it helps me bring my head to earth. My sickly sweet side craves the pantomime theatrics of Meadham Kirchoff, whilst my darker fantasies lust for Alexander Mcqueen’s haunting tales. Although, is it ever so much more than simply the threads we encase bones in that defines our style. Style is expressed by a characteristic, any characteristic, a mode of living if you will. It is our thoughts, our dreams, and our wishes. It is everything we create as artists, and everything we ever desire to create. I want to give people an escape into new worlds through imagery; in the same way my own head escapes at every beckoning chance. Some wish to adventure, and to document that through their creations. Some wish to focus on the past, whilst others sprint forward toward the future. Some focus on the smallest details, whilst others see the world at a much wider angle. Our creative style is defined by the way we answer creative questions, it is nothing we can force, it is often the reason we become artists in the first place. It can never be possible to define one’s true and style; I do not think through simply words anyway, more I see it would be a collection of music, colours, patterns and raw emotions. Furthermore, we are forever stumbling through experimenting with many different styles before we can bring ourselves to accept what we really want. I have endless admiration for whenever I meet those who are so true to their own wishes and loves it is represented in their flairs. Style will forever grow and change, as we grow and change, and, such as beauty, will forever be in the eye of the beholder. It is in your both your tendency and environmental make up, your quietness or your multi-coloured screams. We live in an age where you are free to become whatever you wish to become, therefore create whatever your soul wishes to create and worry only about how you are defined later.

My name is Nick Shand, I am an 18 year old student from South Wales and am currently studying Editorial and Advertising Photography at the University of Gloucestershire. I began photography at the age of 16 whilst on a GCSE Media Studies course. I became captivated by photographers on Flickr such as Karrah Kobus, Rosie Hardy, Brooke Shaden and Alex Stoddard. I fell in love with their concepts and beautiful aesthetics and this truly made me realise the endless possibilities of photography as an art. Since then I have done many test shoots and a music video for the song Lost in the World by Kanye West which has been popular on YouTube. Since the start of University I have been introduced to many great photographers which have inspired me greatly such as William Klein and Don McCullin, as well as new talent such as Grant Thomas. I hope that by the end of University I will have found aesthetics suitable to my taste and have the knowledge to work in the creative industry as a commercial photographer. 35

“

My full name is Veronica Ahn, but I am more commonly known as Roni Ahn. I turned 15 just about a month ago. I am originally from Korea, but I am currently living in Hong Kong and I go to school here. When I was young, I moved around from Korea to Australia to Germany to where I am living now. After I graduate university, I would love to travel once again, from town to town, city to city. I started taking portraiture of people in March, and since then, I have fallen in love with it. I love the way my camera catches light, the way the models move so naturally, and the way I am able to capture it all. When I am taking photos I never want to stop. It is the best feeling.

kelseygenna interview by Tahlia Pajaczkowska-Russell SÝN: How did you start up your clothing line? What’s the history behind Kelsey Genna? Kelsey: Becoming a designer is something I have always wanted to do. When I was at high school I started creating and wearing my own clothing. I guess the whole process started quite slowly, while I was still very much learning! I discovered Etsy several years back and started selling a little on there. Last year I graduated all launched into it full time... which is a dream come true for me. SÝN: Who’ve worked with many talented artists, such as Jeannine Tan and meeting Lina Maria Carrillo. What would you say are your most memorable experiences? Kelsey: Yes, this year especially I have been lucky to meet so many talented people! My most memorable experiences of this year would have to be two trips I took, one to Australia earlier this year and a second to New York in September. I got the opportunity to meet up and work with a lot of people who I have admired through the internet... and I made some very dear friends in the process! I hope to do a lot more of this in 2012. SÝN: You also share an interest in photography, was that a passion you’ve always had, or something that’s developed recently? Kelsey: I think my interest in the arts has certainly flourished since I started my label. It is something I have always loved, but now that I have the opportunity to create my own lookbooks etc. it is something I have become a lot of aware of.

SÝN: What would you say are your biggest influences on your designs? Kelsey: Nature is probably my greatest influence. I love everything about flowers; their colours and shapes. SÝN: Aside from fashion design and photography, what other interests do you have? Kelsey: I love to travel. Nothing out of the ordinary, I enjoy spending time with my friends, cafes and watching films. SÝN: Do you have a dream team you'd love to collaborate with? Kelsey: I have a never ending list of people I would love to work with. This year I was lucky enough to work with Caitlin Shearer... a lovely lady and one of my favourite artists. SÝN: What role does the Internet play for upcoming designers such as yourself? Kelsey: The internet has played such an important role for me personally. I have no doubt it has made launching my label possible. I guess the biggest thing for me would be that I can base myself here in New Zealand yet still reach and sell my pieces to people all over the world. It’s amazing.

I was born in Waterbury, Connecticut, in 1993. My mother and father were Dominican immigrants so I am a first generation Dominican-America. My ethnic background also includes Cuban and Spanish blood. I moved to Gainesville, Florida when I was four years old and have lived here since. It is a sleepy town immersed in lush green and is a beautifully yet quietly inspirational place. I plan to move to a big city in the future to further my career in the arts.

I picked up a camera about a year ago and have been completely in love ever since. Photography has greatly increased my awareness of the beauty of natural light, movement, and emotion. I am inspired by film photographs from bygone eras, the rebellion of the 1960’s, and free-spirited personalities.

LIZ BARNES

17 year old aspiring photographer from Melbourne

Every time I pick up my camera I get a thrill, the thrill of creating something beautiful and something people can connect to. I’m inspired by the human figure; the beauty found in the expressions and shapes made by the union of face and body. I’m also inspired by landscapes and the nature around me which is the reason I shoot mostly outdoors. The whole process of creating photographs is something I hope to continue in the future as a job or for pleasure, but right now, I just hope to continue learning, growing and refining to see where it takes me.

Saibh Egan (pronounced S-I-V-E, like five) a 25 year old fashion and portrait photographer from the west of Ireland.

“

Strong, bold imagery, typography and media have always been my greatest interest. When I was a child I loved to look though her mothers old photos. Photos of people and places, chronicling the beauty of Irelands olden days, mixed with captivating shots of my father’s student days in Saudi Arabia. I became intoxicated. Their look, their feel, even the way they smelled, I was drawn even to the imperfections, the under and over exposed qualities.

CARLY ZINGA

“

To me, photography is a way of showing the world brief moments of beauty and unconstrained youth. I am inspired by finding beauty in strange places, and the changing seasons. It is this unpredictable nature of life that has stirred something inside of me, willing me to travel the world, and explore the ideas and dreams racing through my mind. In the past year, my photography has allowed me to share my thoughts and imaginings across the world, opening opportunities and creating memories I will never forget.

I’m originally from Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria and I’m currently in my second year of a photography degree in the UK. I love doing fashion and portrait photography. I find inspiration everywhere, and sometimes ideas just come to me out of the blue. I’ve been doing fashion photography for 3 years now and I like it because I think that photography is not representative of the real world, but of a different world; a world we can dream of, or be afraid of, or just be curious of. The most important thing in photography for me is to try to capture the spirit, because it gives life to the picture.

Style was so prominent in the 1940’s. After finding my great Grandmother’s photos I was sure of it; she was just 17 years old when Christian Dior introduced the New Look. Women wore these looks around the world; feminine flow of fabric, smaller waist lines and dresses particularly shorter than those previously worn. What interested me most about the 40s fashion, was the fact that there was just one overall set trend. Today, we see trends repeated and recycled from previous years and generations. On the catwalk, we see simplistic trends like block colours or particular methods of draping and layering repeated but in different ways. There is no longer one set look that unites the stylish of the world. I interviewed my Grandmother about her thoughts and feelings of the differences and similarities between the 40s fashion trends and those of today.

LE y ST

by Jade Bigwood

SÝN: Describe the style of clothing worn in the 1940’s. Joyce: Shirt waister dresses were a popular style. Women also wore tailored trousers. SÝN: When the New Look was first introduced in 1947, would you say that everyone took a while to adapt? Joyce: No, everyone went straight into wearing the New Look style. I went straight out and bought the new items of clothing. SÝN: Who were your style icons? Joyce: Definitely the film stars or celebrities of the 1940s. Nobody particularly rings a bell for me, but definitely those I saw at the cinemas. I would dress in their type of style, as they were the main women who knew the popular styles. SÝN: What was your favourite item of clothing? Joyce: When the New Look first came out, I went straight out and bought a green coat. It was beautiful. SÝN: Was there anybody who wore something particularly different? Joyce: No. Everybody wore the New Look. SÝN: Where were the places you got your clothing from? Joyce: Mainly the high street shops or markets. SÝN: What did you accessorize with? Joyce: Pearl necklaces were big at the time; I often used to wear a necklace with red gemstones in. SÝN: Would you say it was easier to dress now or in the 1940s? Joyce: Definitely now, there’s so much to choose from! You can wear whatever you want really! 129


SÝN: How would you describe today’s fashion in comparison with 1940s fashion? Joyce: Today’s fashion isn’t boring, is it? For those who make effort with the way they dress. Everyone is so different, you can be so expressive in terms of your clothing. You can wear what you want, when you want! Not like the 40s, we all had that selected style. SÝN: So would you have preferred to have the openness to choose the style of what you wanted to wear? Joyce: Yes, definitely. I mean, once, a friend and I got draped suits made because it was different to what everyone else wore. I don’t remember any other women wearing those. Only the men wore the draped suits. SÝN: Whose style from today would you say you would be most likely to follow? Joyce: I love Kate Middleton, her femininity in dressing is beautiful; and her McQueen wedding dress… it was stunning!

130

December 2011 www.thirstforvision.com


From my personal point of view, I think that the women of the 40s made so much more effort with their clothing. Every day, they would make an effort with what they were wearing, no matter where they were going. Today, in the 21st century, we have had so much fashion recycled and reused that there is plenty of choice. Perhaps this is why we end up wearing something as typical and obvious as jeans. Just looking at my Grandmother’s photos makes me feel bad about how I dress, (she writes whilst wearing pair of baggy tracksuit bottoms and slouchy v-neck tee) because I feel as if I don’t put in enough effort into what I wear. Although, I believe in this day and age, that we should use fashion as a way of speech, not to be herded into following a trend or wearing what someone else wears. Let fashion be your personality, dress accordingly. For everyone, fashion should be individual, something that you would not expect another to wear. 131

21 year old photographer Bhumika Bhatia started photography 2 years ago, and there was no stopping her. Bhumika wants people to connect with her pictures, she wants them to inspire. She started with a point and shoot, and eventually saved enough money to purchase the Canon 500d. “I want people to fall in love with my pictures. I will do and everything, but best of all I will work hard to achieve where I want to be and use my passion to do it.�

I have been trying hard to achieve my dreams. My pictures have been published and recognized internationally in Paris fashion week and at Selfridge’s London as a part of jimmy choo project. My work has also featured in various magazines in the USA, Spain and Colombia and I have even been interviewed for art magazine vanity teen.
