LUMAS vintage collections
One of the great art forms, and one of the most popular genres of photographic art, the vintage style wows viewers, even as it makes use of subtler color and tone. As part of a decor concept, it demonstrates a refined and classic taste, and an appreciation for historical and cultural icons, but also for the experience of a different time and place, encountered in the special aesthetic form of the vintage.
Vintage photographs can be physical artefacts of an earlier time - or a style of contemporary fine art. Photo artists work with a number of techniques to carefully devise the vintage experience in their works. Vintage fashion models are frequently created by adding a given filter, or outfitting the subject with a vintage dress. Artists work with old cameras, colorize old photos, or recreate light leaks, imparting to photographs a classic element, the sheen and glamour of the vintage photoshoot, or the quality of an heirloom.
In order to realize the artists' vision, vintage style photography makes use of a specific retro aesthetic. This plays out to subtle effect in the case of Soo Burnell, and boldly in the works of Ivo Von Renner. In photographs by Renner and photo artist Stefanie Schneider, the choice of color palette, the texture of the image, and the subject matter mark out the artwork for its distinct vintage quality.
