Based in Hamburg, Janne Peters serves up photos like rare candy in an exquisitely and finely wrapped box of expensive, handmade chocolate. I came across her work on Pinterest (the finest of hunting grounds for eye candy) and then absolutely lost myself in her divine website. Everything she seems to touch, from her photography to her website design, carries a crispness and modernity that is oh so faultless.
Coming across Janne Peters' work was one of those moments (this happens to me from time to time when I feel like I've fallen into an aesthetically infused goldmine) whereby I cannot flip through the work fast enough, because it's all just so good!! And then I have to go over it again and again ever so slowly, because I know that in my greedy, hungry speed I missed all the beautiful details... and then... then I have to decide what to pick to blog about, a tough feat when I love all of it!!
So I've decided to take a breath and be rational, and then choose one of my favourite shoots from Janne Peters' full collection. This mesmerising array of ten photographs is called MusterMix and is styled by the also ever-so-talented Anne Beckwilm. One thing that is quite clear from Janne Peters' work is that she collaborates with amazingly gifted stylist, who share her thirst for sharp, bold and confident concepts.
I chose this particular project as it simply blows me away when the use of such rich and free flowing colour is treated so faultlessly. In a shoot where all this colour carries a heavy risk of coming across as kitsch, every object is given presence, every tone is given depth, and patterns that should be at war are dancing together!! Again, fabulous styling by Anne Beckwilm, but one can't not give credit to the eye behind the camera, the one that perfectly snaps the edge of the bright orange stool, the one that inconspicuously captures the shape repetition between the scissor handles and the glasses frame, and the one that makes a silent hero of the soft and beautiful tile pattern shyly half-hidden behind a vintage cutting board.
