Backstage at Junko Shimada Paris Fashion Week

Junko Shimada Backstage S/S 2015

Junko Shimada – 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea!
Junko Shimada went Jules Verne on acid with her Spring Summer 2015 presentation. Her presentation at the Jeu de Paume was akin to entering a blue pulsating orb and we can only imagine what it was like for photographers when the light is so heavily theatrical.
Since we were testing the Leica Monochrome, it was all about the dramatic interplay of light and darkness. The Monochrome was superb with incredible tonal gradations in soft light, and created very “Hitchcockian” black and white when the contrast was hard. Lens used was the Summilux-M 35mm f/1.4 ASPH.
