Schorr Thing - Amanda Murphy, Elisabeth Erm, Binx Walton, Andreea Diaconu & Juliana Schurig

Photographer Collier Schorr imbues the pages of Self Service's Spring/Summer 2014 issue with her contemplative vision of fashion meets art for an editorial starring five of modelling's most in demand faces. Current 'it' girls Amanda Murphy, Elisabeth Erm, Andreea Diaconu, Binx Walton, and Juliana Schurig look ready to dive into Spring decked out casual ensembles styled by Fashion Editor Suzanne Koller. The five newcomers pose with their hair pulled back, braided and knotted to reveal their striking natural beauty and snippets of their distinct personalities while assuming a series of non-modelly poses. Schorr who just opened her 10th exhibition entitled "8 Women" at the 303 Gallery in Chelsea New York, reveals of her approach to photographing models to the International New York Times, "I don't know what to do until I meet them. Who are you? I'm going to take that picture." And so she does as Amanda Murphy gazes into Collier's lens with an unapologetic air of self-assurance or perhaps while Elisabeth Erm effortlessly seduces the viewer with her unembellished beauty, and no doubt as Binx Walton adopts a buffalo stance with a look of teen defiance. Purple Magazine's Olivier Zahm sums it up perfectly when describing his collaboration with Schorr in 1995 for a fashion story on Helmut Lang, "At the time, artists were much more careful about work in fashion. She worked without a stylist. She is about expressing the true personality of the model, not creating an artificial beauty."
