Reality Bites

British photographer Angelo Pennetta is best known for his reportage style imagery which has graced the pages of the New York Times supplement T Magazine, Love and Self Service. Pennetta's photographs of Lara Stone, Raquel Zimmmerman and Liu Wen for T Magazine's series of feature articles on models visiting their homelands, provides an intimate glimpse into the personal lives of modelling's biggest names. Pennetta began his career assisting Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and has since carved his own niche as a photographer shooting for the likes of American Vogue, the Last Magazine, Industrie and US Harpers Bazaar.

Pennetta adds British Vogue to his burgeoning resumé of high fashion editorials, following supermodel Karlie Kloss as she does the rounds of the Paris Fall/Winter 2012 collections. Kloss is captured by Pennetta as she greets the day in her suite at the Hotel Crillon, whilst enroute to the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Karl Lagerfeld's atelier, and for a drink at Harry's Bar. In an interview with Love Magazine, Pennetta sheds  light on his unique take on fashion photography, "I don't really associate myself with fashion photography, I don't get it. I don't get what it is. Like you can pick up any magazine nowadays and you don't know what magazine you are looking at because it doesn't have an identity. Yeah there are a few - Love, Interview, French Vogue, that are recognisable when you open them. Most things though... So much of fashion photography in a way is drab. It's not inspiration."
