Hairdressing Photography Art

The Ambitious Photography of Richard Burbridge

April 17, 2015
Richards work is instantly recognizable. Richard is not afraid to take the ugly and put it right in your face. So close to your face that you cannot help but see the beauty in it. His work, along with the team that he works with, is nothing short of surreal. Dazed and Confused has been a perfect fit for Richard, seemingly giving him free reign. We thank them for that.
As far as hair goes, Richard works with the best in the business. From our buddy James Pecis, Bob Recine, to Rutger. You know the hair has to be something otherworldly to keep up with these high concepts. That being said, The hair does not steal the show, nor should it. 
This is one of the reason we do not feature much work from the likes of NAHA, and other hairdressing competitions. We strongly feel that hair, while it is sometimes considered the most important feature in an editorial photograph, it is still only one player in the show. Often, regardless of the talent that goes into these over the top hair creations, the beauty is lost. The result is something that feels out of balance. There are times though, that the stylist and the photographer harmonize, and create something great together, and the right judge will be there to recognize when this happens. 
On with the show…..
 “Richard Burbridge’s technically ambitious photography explores the alchemical properties of the medium. Transforming his subjects fashion, portraiture, beauty and still life photography, Burbridge subverts the expected. Based in New York for twenty years, his work covers fashion, beauty, portraiture and still life, and is regularly published in Italian VogueDazed & Confused and The New Yorker. His advertising clients include Tom Ford, Chanel and Cartier.”
