Another image from my mini experiment studio shoot. I have been fascinated with ‘glitching’ for a long time and so I went on a long experimental process to figure out the best ways to Datamosh, truncate glitches and file corrupt an image by editing the images file data and texts.
This experiment was pretty time consuming and involved a lot of post editing in PhotoShop once i’d created the initial glitches but I had fun playing around with the image, it’s not often in Fashion Photography that you get to create imperfections and ‘errors’ within an image.
Back to the fashion element of the image; this jacket is one of my favourite ever purchases, I think it looks like an old Marc Jacobs jacket but I actually found it in a charity shop for £1.50 and its a women’s Dorothy Perkins jacket. I also wore this jacket to London Collections: Men which just proves that Menswear isn’t just about a price tag or a specific “menswear” label. There is more cross over in fashion now than ever before, lots of womenswear collections featuring trouser suits and boxy shapes and menswear designers like J.W Anderson pushing the boundaries in masculine and feminine cross overs. That’s what I wanted to show in this image (in a much more forward way) by using a women’s jacket and fishnet tights to create an androgynous and gender anarchic “glitch”.
