Saw this while shopping at Tangs. Its a collection of editorial, commercial and personal shoots from him and a selected handful of photogs. Its a typical coffee book table kinda book. You can probably use to to get some ideas. Its as thick as a phonebook.

WARNING: contains some nudity

just fyi, this book has been out for at least 1-2 months already.

it's super icon.


it's a good book meaning you will find and see lots of good works of fashion photography (albeit repetitive) through the course of browsing the book. and then you'll start to realise that leslie kee is human after all because there are some things you will feel that you can replicate (perhaps).

it's still a good book i keep it in my office and flip through when i'm bored.


i know this might offend some, might start a war, (please don't thanks) but i feel that john clang's stuff seem a little more creative than leslie's.

FYI, Those who do not wish to purchase his book can still view his exact whole collection onlineat his website. I forgot the name of the website already so have to find it yourself. But its worth it!!! I was at the Idn Conference where he gave a speech. COOL!

Its not a matter of who is more creative than the other. Leslie's and CLANG's work are just different.

You should all take a look at YangTan's work.

Leslie Kee is someone I personally admire and respect. I have a copy of SUPER and it is really really beautiful. Though we have different sensibility but I can appreciate the beauty of his work. I strongly recommend everyone to take a look or even buy a copy. The design is done by my mentor, Theseus Chan,
and he is someone we ought to recognise. He is simply a genius!!!

Also...besides Leslie, my other all time favourite Singaporean Fashion Photographers are Kirby Koh (base in London), Chuando (a fashion genius base in Singapore) and ,of course, Geoff Ang (need no introduction).
These small group of people help make Singapore a more prominent and mysterious place to the world outside the island. My kudos to them.

There's also 6 new Singaporean 'kid' that I believe will truly shine in near future.
They are Jonathon Tay, Roy Zhang, Jimmy Foo, DC Chang, GT Gan and Xuan Ong.

I'm very excited with this new pool of local talents. They are original and inspiring to many. Let's hope we all work towards a better Singapore photography scene.

the asian models towards the end of the book are absolutely gorgeous.
I wonder if we'll see more asian models in international publications in the future?
