Formento + Formento
This dynamic husband-wife team have made an art of their unique strain of fashion photography. Excluding an eerie sensuality combined with a narrative cinematic sensibility, the ambiguous nature of the characters and scenarios remind us of David Lynch and Hopperesque landscapes. They couldn’t have landed in the photographic landscape at a more opportune moment. With the enormous interest in their work–success is eminent.
Vogue Italy has been a forerunner and loyal supporter of their work, as well as cutting edge magazines like Aesthetica and Wolf. Their most recent commercial campaigns include Stephen Knoll, Hammitt Los Angeles, Christian Roth Optical and Charles of London.
2012 was a breakthrough year for F+F. They were nominated top finalist to Vogue’s New Exposure Competition 2012, working with Bottega Venetta and Red Digital Camera. Vogue Italia have included their work in PhotoVogue in the last two consecutive years singling them out of thousands of candidates. A solo exhibition opened in November to rave reviews at London’s Society Club Soho and in the spring Yellowkorner Gallery has featured their work in a solo exhibitions across Europe starting in Paris, London, Berlin, Stuttgart and Dusseldorf.
