CHRISTOPHE RIHET







Last week, I discovered the work of fashion photographer Christophe Rihet. This happened completely by chance: I bought a pair of low-waisted wide legged chinos from ... Jigsaw ... (not a place where I usually shop but I was quite seduced by the relaxed slightly hippie luxury of some of their pieces). I was looking at their catalogue and immediately fell in love with the sensual photography of Christophe Rihet. The compositions and saturated colours make the images dream-like. I like the soft backlighting of some of his work and love his use of warm temperatures.
I tried to find out more about him online but not much is said except that he started out as an assistant for celebrity Japanese photographer Satoshi Saikosa.
I assume that he's French (with a name like that he must be French)!

christophe rihet is a pretty huge photographer....he's been around for at least 15 years - i'm surprised you couldn't find more about him.

a.: Hey lovely A, I'm glad you like them! I fell in love immediately ...

Luxe: You should check out his work, you can see a lot more if you go to his management's website

Anonymous: Yes, I realize that he's a celebrated photographer and saw his client list. He has indeed done a lot of high profile campaigns but for me it was the Jigsaw catalogue that caught my eye. I couldn't find out more about the man himself. There's a very short bio on his management website.

Beautiful....they tell a story whilst showing the clothes really exquisitely. I'm a sucker for backlighting, it comes from growing up watching Kate Bush and Deborah Harry with that signature backglow.....

I've been enjoying your blog since you commented on mine, do you want to link each others?

Madame: Backlighting is something I'm always trying to achieve when I'm snapping away on holiday, I'm such an amateur photographer but I love it!
