Lippmans campaign for Christian Louboutin caught my eye when researching still life photography, he obviously has influence from 17th Century fine art. Perhaps this was just for this campaign, to make the shoes seem like works of art. Objects like skulls and quills wich are common in Pieter Claesz work help to anchor this association between art and high society and the shoes. This si a good way to show an object which is close to you. Glorifying it’s meaning.
texture and colour are all huge pieces of his work, it’s obvious that nothing is a mistake, creating work in this style would help with my pre-visualisation technique.
