As a fashion photographer you need to be very versatile: you have to be able to make series that fit the wishes of the magazine that will publish the shots, keep the fashion designer happy and of course you don’t want to lose your own signature either. Matthieu Belin is one of those photographers who seems to succeed in all that. Whether the series is in colour or black and white, in a studio or against an urban Chinese skyline: he never loses the signature distance or coldness that his work breaths out. My favourite series is for Chinese fashion designer Qiu Hao ‘Serpens’ collection (the beautiful black and white garments) yet it’s impossible not to mention the wonderful Wong Kar Wei influenced images or the gorgeous Chinese cityscapes. Enjoy!
