The photographer: Hedi Slimane

Hedi Slimane usually takes photos on black and white, not for that vintage, but because he twists it around, making it elegant, exquisite, bold and beautiful. And then, there is those rare times when he does use color and it comes as almost a shock to the senses after viewing so much of his other work.
This Parisian photographer is best known for his design work at Dior Homme, but his photography work, as well as his videos projects are really inspiring to the youthful, energetic and alternative figures. 
Below are a few photos that exemplify his signature photographic style!
