Let us hear about the amazing skills and thoughts of David Tan in today's Life!
"A self-taught photographer, he returned home with a law degree from the University of Melbourne in 1996 and was appalled by fashion photography standards here.
So, he tried to life them by holding several solo exhibitions from 1996 to show how it could be done.
...."I wish they would be just a bit more creative and fresh.""
Let us hear his revolutionary concept of beauty
""It's not easy being beautiful. Some have a slight advantage with good cheekbones and low BMI, but you still need discipline to be beautiful". As for why his body of work has been dominated by Caucasians with few Asian faces, he says:"That is what the culture of beauty tends to be about. You can't run away from models and beautiful people...that's my aesthetic universe""
I am going down to the Photographer's Gallery tomorrow to see how much I want to hate this guy
