Friedemann Vogel for Encens Magazine

Friedemann has always been fascinated by the power of photography to capture the poetry of movement in stillness. Preparing for fashion shoots is not too dissimilar to preparing for a performance; it’s ultimately about channeling emotions through movement, except with a stronger focus on the clothes. Friedemann thoroughly enjoyed this innovative collaboration with the Encens Magazine, for which he wore a range of labels, including Hed Mayner, Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Emporio Armani, Uma Wang, Comme des Garcons and Issey Miyake.
