Lea Colombo shoots for Dilara Findikoglu (on her transition from backstage photography to editorial/art photography):
“With backstage I saw an opportunity so I just emailed them and I said, “Hey here’s my work I’d love to do this for you” and that kind of built up the work and then the #brands kind of started picking up on what I was doing obviously because it was very different to what was happening with other back stage photographs. It was more of an art form I guess? … But creatively backstage was actually creatively quite amazing because sometimes you literally have two minutes to do your thing otherwise you get kicked out. And then I just kind of started shooting stuff on the side – look books, editorials and it all just went from there.”
“Dilara Findikoglu is a London based designer of Turkish origin. The Central St Martins graduate’s rebellious nature first came to light when in lieu of the presss how, she held her own guerilla catwalk to much admiration from the International fashion press. Since then her name has quickly become synonymous with empowered tailoring fused with historical references and social commentary – Dilara plays with the roles and perceptions of the norm and distorts and twists them for our pleasure..”
