“Go Sees” by Olivier Simille

Olivier Simille tests and proves true the theory that simplicity is often best in his ongoing portrait series Go Sees. A string of photos taken at his studio in New York and while visiting in Paris pictures his models in a snapshot light. Inspired by Juergen Teller’s book by the same title, we can see the similarities drawn directly from his work in the 90’s.

Go Sees took place when an aspiring model would show up at a photographers studio or a magazine in hopes of being discovered and used in a shoot. The cold call kind of nature in this interaction inspired Juergen Teller to create 400+ images of models looking eager and doe eyed at his front door. The adaptation seen here employs a wider breadth of fashion while still paying homage to the art of the portrait snapshot.
