I love fashion photography, largely because it has the potential to encompass almost any topic or interest. This fashion shoot for Ellery features the beautiful Blitz BMW R60 ‘Great Escape’. The industrial black form of the German bike gives the Baroque surroundings a sense of gravitas and menace, an extension of the rebel image expressed with greater elegance. It’s great to see a model like Ashley Smith pose with a motorcycle without resorting to lad’s mag antics. The trouble is, I can’t take my eyes of that beautiful bike.
